The Return of Project Life

Oh my it has been a long time since I had done a project life page :) But a new challenge blog is bringing my project life back to life.... So let's blow off the dust and see what happens.
Jan 6 to Jan 12 2014?!! Yes that is the year of this title card for this particuliar week :) Can we all say I'm a bit behind :) but no worries now that a new project life challenge blog has come to save the day! The name of the blog is Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style and this is the sketch that is the challenge for this week:
Our first sketch was created by the wonderfully talented Shawn Lahr:

More about the challenge at the end of the blog post.
The 2 page spread that is inspired by this card:
A closer look at each page:
 The left side holds Jan 6 thru Jan 8. A peek at my office that I had at Moonlight Graphics I do love post it notes. A record breaking day for a morning low. Some trouble for a neighbor that caused some trouble for me to get back to my house. Not a pleasant day at all with my hooping station breaking. But got to see this little precious moment at the end of the day. This is the year we see Tristan growing through his 1st year of life his and Waylon's too.
The right side holds Jan 9 thru Jan 12. A pic of the day was a picture of me standing on our porch,it was nice to see the sun out. My planner for this year and an unusual hooping job to be done. A cute picture of our Grand daughter Astacia, she is a true beauty from the inside out. We watched Les Miserables and I wrote up a card about it. My favorite football team making it into the NFC championship game (we won't be seeing any of that this year :( A cute photo of most of Avery's kids one AJ is missing from the photo, guess he decided not to walk along.
 I used the original counterfeit kit I had pulled in Jan 2014 for this month of PL, and with that I added some things that I pulled this month for CKC in PL cards and embellishments.
I love to add the week in review card to my spread it gives a snapshot of what my week was like and what my journaling is like.
 A closer look, had fun with these pockets
The bummer was a PL card that I cut up to get what I wanted, love that you can find fun things to do with the cards you get in these kits.  I have learned today that the photos I thought I had for 2014 PL is actually 2013 PL so will be going back to that year and putting it together while I gather up my 2014 photos from around the craft room and get them organized to document in PL (a project for after the holidays I'm thinking) till then 2013 to the rescue. I also learned that the older pictures that I grab off FB I need to write the caption about them then, it takes way to long to look for the original photo on FB when it's been almost 2 years later.........
Looking forward to seeing what you create :)
