And by “she” I dont mean me. It’s my daughter doing the crafting ūüôā


This week is a two page spread.

On the left hand page: I used two of the Simple story pockets on the top row. The “Word of the week” in the middle row, was a free printable from a couple of weeks ago (which you can download here). The Creativity quote is part of the free quotes collection by Elise Blaha Cripe (I love her blog!!! And her project life approach!). The “mother” quote in the bottom row is part of this weeks free download (scroll down to snag it).¬†The ” I love everything about you” is a free download from here. This is one of those pins, that went from “pinned it” to “printed it” in a day!

I wrote my journaling on these small tags and stuck them into those Simple Stories pockets.


Now, the right hand spread- is all about the art projects my girl made. She draws, paints, doodles and that pocket under the She crafts, she made that all by herself one afternoon while I was scrapbooking. She does make a big dent in my adhesive supplies…


This spread was a quick one because I used up papers from my 6 by 6 paper pad collection (I hoard these pads, not collect). All of these papers came ¬†from Dear Lizzy’s Fifth and Frolic.

This week I also didnt round the corners because my assistant (as in daughter) was asleep while I worked on this spread. And later, I realized I liked my corners un-rounded. Who knew?

And now onto this weeks Free Printable…

Supplies: I am print­ my pho­tos (and the PL cards) at home using my Canon 9000 pro series. I use this paper by CanonРwhich is sim­ply amaz­ing!!!
