Project Life Week 41

One of my goals with sharing Project Life here is to show how easy it can be to document your life without spending a ton of money. When I stopped working full-time, the budget to spend on crafts was cut way down. I also have to share this budget with my other love: quilting. That means, I can't buy every kit, embellishments, or join subscriptions. I have to use what I have and really think about how to stretch my supplies to the fullest. Last year I bought the Cobalt kit with all plans to use it this year as my main kit. And then I fell in love with Seafoam and decided to splurge on it.
This week I vowed to use just the forgotten Cobalt kit. 
I love it. The simplicity really helped the photos stand out and I had a lot of room for the journaling. 

Here's the full week:

I got a package in the mail this week from a close friend and she included this beautiful card. I tucked it right in to the layout!
I love to make lists and this overview list included a lot of the highlights from the week. 

We picked out Halloween costumes this week and the twins went with superheroes! I created a collage from the Instagram photos using the PicFrame app and printed it out.

I love a good shadow picture!!

We've been having a lot of back and forth with potty training and so we celebrate with small successes. After a full day of no accidents we got cakepops!

The twins had their first field trip this week to the farm. I got quite a lot of photos of my little farmers and this one of Hollis might be my favorite. They have a huge bounce pad and I caught him sliding down the edge. 
I added some letter stickers and write directly on the photo.

Naomi was aglow riding on the flatbed truck out to the fields.
Later in the day we went to our local farm to visit with the sheep. 
The kids love to feed them veggies.

I'm linking with The Mom Creative for her weekly Project Life share.

I'm so impressed that you get your scrapbooking done not to mention quilting. I've never been good at balancing two hobbies.
