elle's studio: project life week 38

more project life goodness.  i just can't believe we are already 42 weeks into the year.  the home stretch to album completion is among us!!  i always love finishing an album....and i always love starting a new album.  i'm not quite sure what my plans are for 2014...maybe a smaller format?!?  who knows!!

anyway...onto week 38!
this week, i used the october kit from elle's studio.  the colors were perfect for the fall activities we've been doing!!  

here's a look at both sides together....

and a closer look at each side...

the "i (heart) our family" card seemed perfect for this week.  i loved how it looked and just jazzed it up a little by adding a trimmed doily.  (i love doilies....).

i also wanted to play around with the vellum ampersand card and decided to write my journaling directly in the shape using a white gel pen.  i ended up backing it with a piece of black paper to try to help the ampersand and the journaling stand out.

same here...more photos and words.
nap time is gone in our house (except for on sick days, it seems), so i wanted to really highlight that on this spread.  i typed my journaling onto one of the journaling cards and then added some thickers to a piece of vellum to layer over top of the journaling.  i love how you can see the journaling is there, but that you get the main idea from the title!!

and some detail shots...

that's it from me today!!  

how is your project life coming along??  are you all caught up and ready to finish this album??  what about next year?  do you know what direction you are taking??  leave me some ideas!!  i'm struggling over here!  :)

happy tuesday!
