Project Life 2013 | Week 6

Hi! Today, I am sharing Week 6 from my Project Life album. This week covers: February 4 to February 10.

This is the double page spread:
I used Echo Park: Photo Freedom.  

This is the left side:

I included one self portrait photo just after one of my jogging activities. I realized that there were no photos of myself in the previous Project Life spreads. The next photo shows Diego doing homework while Luis is swimming. The rest of the photos show the current book I am reading and Diego celebrating the 100 days class at school.

This is the right side:
Luis had his first Swim Meet during the weekend of February 9/10. He did an outstanding job and loved the competitive thrill. We are very proud of his achievements. He did 50m freestyle, 50m backstroke and 100m freestyle. On Sunday, we had to split since Diego had a basketball game in Canovanas while Luis had the Swim Meet. So, I missed Luis 100m freestyle event but I was able to enjoy Diego's participation at the basketball game. On Sunday evening, there was a local 5K race. I ran that race with Luis and Diego. We did 39:59 on the 5K.  Oh yes! We are enjoying spending our time doing sports! I really love this life's stage of our family!

Wishing everyone a great week!

Project Life 2013 | Week 5


Here is my Week 5 spread which covers from January 28 to February 3:


I used Simple Stories "Awesome" collection.  I wrote some weekly goals and documented my accomplishments too.

Here is the left side:
During the week my son had a cold therefore he did not go to swimming practices. This made our afternoon easier, so we could relax and stay at home. On Tuesday I took care of the son of one of my best girl friends which I enjoyed a lot since my kids are bigger. On Wednesday I did grocery shopping and I took a photo from a book Diego chose from Scholastics and Luis is currently reading. 

This is the right side:

All the photos included in the right side are from the weekend. We were pretty busy since on Saturday, we had a basketball game in the morning. Then we had lunch at Plaza. Then, we saw "Cirque du Soleil" movie in the afternoon. It was the only PG rated showing movie and it was super boring. I really do not recommend it.

On Sunday, we had another basketball game. Then, we went to the track and field to do a little bit of exercise all the four of us. We did interval training with the kids. During the evening we created the Diego's T-shirt for the coming "100 Days" activity at school. We attached 98 foam glitter stars.

So that is our weekend in a nutshell. I am linking this post to one of the Project Life Tuesday posts from The Mom Creative.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Layout | I Love My Family


Happy Valentine's Day! I wish you a great day filled with love, friendship, hugs, kisses, chocolates and lots of red and pink. I want to share with you this layout created for the Monthly DT Challenge at 3 Scrappy Boys. This is February Challenge #1. I chose the current sketch from Sketchbook365 Sketch Challenge blog based on a layout by designer Yvonne Yam. This is my take in the sketch:

I used the new collection from Echo Park "Love Notes". This collection is gorgeous. I could not help it but to use it for these wedding photos from last November. I love the different patterns and shades of red and pinks and this collection does not screams Valentine's so you can use it to document your love for your family or significant ones everyday of the year.The supplies I used for the above layout were part from the design kit I received with store product which I loved it too.

I am linking this layout to Sketchbook365 sketch challenge blog.

February kits are now for sale in the 3 Scrappy Boys store and they are amazing. Two of them feature the new collection from Glitz "Color Me Happy". I do not have samples to show you here since this month is my non-kit however my DT friends will post their gorgeous projects pretty soon in the Gallery

Project Life 2013 | Week 4

Here is Week 4 from Project Life. This week covers: January 21 to January 27.


I used the lovely kit January 2013 Add-Onfrom 3 Scrappy Boys. I chose the patterned papers with journaling cards for this spread. I love the colors from Pink Paislee "Portfolio" collection and that sentiments are targeted to document the everyday. Also, I am finding that I like to keep this project super simple.

This is the left side:

My husband sent me a photo from his work trip to Canada. The week was full of school homework, swim practices and basketball practices.

This is the right side:


During the weekend we went to a Basketball Tournament Inauguration and two basketball games.
I am still learning the ropes of doing Project Life weekly. I am still finding my process to document the everyday things.

    Layout | Today & Tomorrow & Forever


    This is the second layout I made with January 2013 Add-On from 3 Scrappy Boys
    This kit features papers from Pink Paislee "Portfolio". The journaling diecut and the title was cut out from one of the patterned papers. I loved those Studio Calico wood veneers, so much that I left as they came. I attached one of them to the Heidi Swapp instaframe with some hidden journaling.
    She is my beloved sister Yessica. I took this photo on Thanksgiving's Day 2011 (just was month before starting the cancer's battle). I still not believe that she is not longer with us here in earth. I miss her so much...
