Project Life 2014 Weeks 22 & 27

Some weeks come together super quickly.  Others... not so much.  Week 27 was one I was super excited to get done and it took probably a half hour total.  But Week 22 sat "in progress" for weeks.  Which is why I'm finally sharing it today.

Week 22 was the week Houston received nearly 10 inches of rain in about 5 days.  Since I had recently purchased a cute weather stamp from Freckled Fawn, I knew I needed to delay working on this week until I had that stamp.  If I'm going to buy something, I'm definitely going to use it every chance I get and this was a perfect occasion.  Adding it to this rain drop card (from the Stampin' Up! Everyday Adventures kit) was even more perfect.

The rest of the week came together fairly quick since I used my typical Design A formula of half BW/half color photos, and focused on blues and greens.  And I'm still very much in love with the "Fact No.__" stamp from a past Studio Calico kit.  When did I become such a stamp lover?

Like I said before, this week came together very quickly since I knew I'd be using at least a few cards from the gorgeous Studio Calico 4th of July kit.  I already had 4 BW photos from the week I loved and settled on 5 more color photos that worked well together.

The "In Review" and "Today" journaling cards are in the Kiwi Kit, but can also be bought digitally here and here.  They provided plenty of space for journaling about the week and it even allowed me to sneak in a "song of the week" into the spread.  ;)

Oh, and FYI, I used my Becky Higgins corner rounder to round the corners of that wood veneer flag and it worked perfectly!
