{20 - 26 october 2013 | week 43 }

10 November 2013

It's week 43 and there is lots of lovely pink from my CitrusTwist pocket life kit !

What happened this week ?

I recently discovered *CitrusTwist* and ordered one of their monthly scrapbook kit sets. I was so impressed when I received it that I immediately signed up for their 3 month pocket life kit too ! My first one arrived during the week documented and I immediately put nearly every single item to good use - really good value for money.

Autumn is finally here in all its glorious colours. We had a couple of days of really warm weather and then mists and once the mist lifted you could really see the change in the leaves.  I captured some amazing spiderwebs covered in dew photographs on my morning run.  This was the first week of the school holiday, but I still managed to continue my running programme and find activities for the kids as well.  Friday saw us all head to Lyon for Zachary's 3 monthly check up for his diabetes. He was very pleased to have grown 3cms and not put on any weight, so his exercises are paying off - bravo! We tied in a trip to Ikea to get a another cart for my scrap bits with lunch and the children loved the meatballs.

Techniques used ~

I used my Cameo to cut the Week number on double sided adhesive with a transparency and then added glitter as taught in the "Cutting Edge" class by Studio Calico.  I used the same technique for the Shanna Noel "gratitude documented" free file.  The vellum pocket shows from last week, so I added some pink sequins. I cut up some of the CitrusTwist cards to add the word/sayings as embellishments to my photos.

Ratio of iPhone to DSLR photos ~ 8 iPhone and 8 DSLR (all photos taken by me)

Supplies used ~ CitrusTwist This Life {October} pocket life kit and stamps, Studio Calico Antiquary {October} project life kit, ChicTags journalling tags, Shanna Noel gratitude documented cut file, Tracy Larsen PSD templates, My Minds Eye enamel dots, Skipping5 enamel dots, Jillybean Soup stickers, Studio Calico cork sticker, Kelly Purkey alphas, Freckled Fawn washi tape, Glitz Design {sunshine in your soul} stickers

Tools used ~ Becky Higgins Design A pocket pages, {Fiskars} corner rounder, {Tim Holtz} tiny attacher, {amy tangerine} stamp, {Lifestyle Crafts} letterpress platform, Sissix {Big Shot} machine, Remington Rand vintage manual typewriter, Silhouette Cameo. All photos taken by me on either my {iPhone} using the VSCO cam app, or my {Canon EOS 40D}. All photos printed at home on my HP Deskjet 3059A printer on {Rey} plain white cardstock, {Clairefontaine} grained cardstock, Becky Higgins cardstock or {Avery} classique photo paper.

Project Life is a memory keeping system created by Becky Higgins. Each week I use photos and other bits to journal and document our everyday life.
