Project Life 2014 : Weeks 10 & 11

Jumping back to my 2014 album today and sharing a couple spreads from early March.  These two weeks were when we had family visiting so they are super special pages in our album.  Since we live 1000 miles from both Beau and my own family it's important to me to get these types of photos documented in a spot the boys can see. So on to Week 10 (March 3rd through the 9th)!

This week my mom was here for a visit for Ephram's birthday. We also had a mini ice storm (the third icing event of the season for Houston this year!). Beau turned 29. And we planted our veggie/fruit garden.

Loved using the Plus One mini-kit for this spread.

Below, on the XOXO card, I added some thin scraps of green paper to the X's just to add some color.  And the triangle patterned paper in the corner of the photo is from Kiwi Core Kit.

Of course I just *had* to include this moment in my album.

This week we had more family visiting and we went to the Houston Rodeo.

Here's a look at the spread without the insert.

Love using those plane wood veneers when we have family flying in for visits.

We listen to a lot of music in our house, and since music can bring back memories similar to the way a smell does,  I've been toying with the idea of including a card in each week's spread about a favorite song. It worked out really well this week since we were going to see Keith Urban at the Houston Rodeo. & I love this song.

Below is a close up on the insert. I cut off part of the Design B pocket page to make it since it worked well with the photos I had chosen to include.  Love the flexibility of creating your own inserts this way.

This adorable 'Captured' die cut is from the Office Hours Studio Calico Project Life kit.  I finally decided to become a monthly subscriber recently and am not quite sure what took me so long.  I'm in love with the fun designs and colors they provide in each kit.  Though I still love my Becky Higgins kits, these provide some super fun embellishments for those weeks I have extra time to play.
