Project Life Week #3

Hello friends!  I know it's been a while since I shared a Project Life spread with you but I just haven't had the time to work on it these past few weeks.  That's what I love most about this process though...I don't let it bother me if I get "behind" and I just work on it whenever I get the chance to.  I have a really cool app on my phone called Day One that helps me keep track of the journaling too so that helps. ;)

Anyway, I have a new spread to share with you today!  This week I changed it up a little bit and used less pictures so that I could include some longer journaling, a really cute quote, and also to have a couple of blank cards to play around with, which I stitched on!  Talk about fun...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Supplies: Crate Paper Fourteen 6x6 Paper Pad; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; October Afternoon Sprinklers - Pink Balloon, Token; TT/Ali Edwards Stamps - Days Of The Week, Favorite Memories, Love Ali, This One, It's In The Details; Studio Calico Stamps - New Years 2013, The Good Life; Cocoa Daisy Stamps - Feather, Grungy Grid; Paper Smooches Stamps - Geo-Graphic; Lawn Fawn Stamps - Smitty's ABC's, Say Cheese Too; Technique Tuesday Stamps - Hanging By A Thread; Heidi Swapp Roller Date Stamp; Marvy 3/4" Circle Punch; Stampin' Up!

Aren't they great?  Each time I finish one of these weeks, I just stare and stare at it, lol.  I guess that means I love it though and I'm really enjoying working on it, so yay me!  It was really awesome pulling out my stitching supplies because it's been WAY too long since I did some stitching on my projects and I love how it looks!  I'm planning on ordering the new Amy Tangerine kits (have you seen those???) to try out so I'm sure you'll see some of those designs soon...
 
Are any of you doing PL?  If so, please feel free to leave me a link to some of your pages because I'd love to check them out!  Thanks for stopping by to visit today. :)
