Project Life using Summer Stories - with Julie

Hi everybody!  Welcome to another fun week of Project Life!  
And if you're not doing PL...don't run away!   Many of the tips, tricks & ideas used for PL or journaling cards can be applied to layouts, cards...whatever you're working on! :)

I'm sharing my pages from last week.

I was getting quite a glare from the page I took everything out for photos.  I used two different sized page protectors.  I do this from week to week.  First I see what I have to work with (my favorite photos)...if I have a lot of verticals...I'll use page protectors like I did this week.  If I have lots of horizontals...or 'littles'...I'll use one that has more 3x4 spots.  

Week 16...which for me was April 14-20.  
When I was working on this for today's post, I still had pictures coming from the weekend.
I also want to add some journaling about what happened in Boston.  I will most likely use the back of this page for those things.  
I included my cat Lola, who had to make a little visit to the vet (all is well!)...Ian walking in to school, and a couple of pictures of things I see in my home town pretty much every day, I just don't stop to photograph them.  Until now. :)

I used Summer Stories for my accent pieces.  LOVING that line! :)  (Especially the gold dot glitter paper!)

This piece is 4x6.  I used a lot of the papers from the 6x6 paper pad.  The D/Document is cut from the Flashcards paper.  Then I added little bits and pieces from the chipboard accents (these are awesome!), the die cuts & brads.

This is a 3x4 card...cut from the wood grain side of the Filigree paper.  I added the Nowhere Else sticker...some chipboard, the glitter border strip, and those enamel dots.  LOVE those little guys!
I added a doily for the bottom, and fussy cut a couple of those pretty pink flowers.

I cut this out from the paper that has all the 3x4 journaling cards on it.  I covered the center section with the flower paper, added chipboard, a little bit of gold glitter border...and stamped the Story.

The top 3x4 card is also from the Cards paper.  I stitched along the banner at the top and added a little washi at the bottom.  I included some highlights from our family's week.
I had to include the picture of my daughter texting...because it was just so typical! lol
Also, baseball season has started...and I got a new phone last week!  Woohoo!

This is a 6x4 piece of gold glitter dot paper.  I added a strip of the black from the 6x6 paper pad, and I cut the library card portion from the Ephemera paper.  Then I added a few doo dads to make the filler card.  

Thanks for sharing my week with me! :)
