Project Life: Weeks 5, 6 & 7

I am happy to report that I am all caught up with Project Life. I stopped doing anything after my Dad's heart attack and then when I sat down to work on those weeks found it very difficult and left it again. At that point I was 6 weeks behind and I needed a plan- I do not want another incomplete album (I still have the greatest intentions to finish 2013). I have a cart from Ikea that I cleaned out and then loaded it up with all my Project Life stuff- cards, adhesive's, pens, embellishments, page protectors, etc and then packed it upstairs and it sits in my kitchen. In the mornings I sit down with my coffee while Anna is eating her breakfast and watching cartoons and I work on my Project Life. It is working out wonderfully, I am getting spreads done and loving it! Why at my kitchen table? Because Anna is in a phase right now where she has a little melt down if I go onto the basement to work... so at the kitchen table I will stay until that passes. It's all about compromise in all relationships. 
Here are weeks 5-7, I won't be sharing the other weeks as they have too many personal photos from the weeks in the hospital with my Dad.

I will apologize for my pictures right now, some are blurry, some are too dark and no matter how many times I tried to get better images it just wasn't going to happen. So I just rolled with it... c'est la vie.

Week 5:
Product: Seafoam Core Kit, wood veneer geo tag: Studio Calico, cork heart: My Mind's Eye, "be awesome today" sticker: American Crafts, alphas: 7 Gypsies

Week 6:

Product: pattern paper: Heidi Swapp, stickers: My Mind's Eye, chipboard heart: Studio Calico, heart pin: unknown

Week 7:

Product: Plus One Mini Kit, Midnight Core Kit, wood veneer geo tag: Studio Calico, photo overlay: Crate Paper, I was gifted the all the 3x4 cards, the "love" card was stitched on red cardstock by my talented friend Karen

These are great Nadine! I am glad you are finding time and space to get this done. I bet those pages with your dad will be especially cherished.
