This was a fun week. I had to add an insert to fit everything in. Here's a look at the two page spread with no insert.
Here's the insert on the other side:
I didn't use too much as far as product goes for this week. There were a lot of photos and I kept mainly to those.
Here on the left we have a very simple title card. :) I just wrote with a Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write marker on one of the 4x6 pads from We R Memory Keepers that I got at Target a long time ago.
The rest of this page are pictures from a family friend's birthday party. I normally don't scrap other people's birthday parties but this is a family we don't see very often and we LOVE to hang out with them. We had a great time! It was a superhero party for a 4 year old and the kids dressed like super heroes. BTW, that grown up spiderman on the bottom left, that's my superhero husband. :)
On the right we have my son's baseball game and the trike-a-thon fundraiser at my daughter's preschool. I also fit most of the journaling along here.
The "happy" sticker on my daughter's bike photo I THINK is from Jillibean Soup. The tag I journaled on was K & Co and part of a tag stack I got at JoAnns. The journal card with the banner on it is from one of those sheets you can cut up and it's full of them. I don't remember the brand. sorry.
That little "Walking on Sunshine" and the "good times" on the other page are from a sheet of little phrases from Creative Imaginations.
Here's the front of the insert:
The white tabs I wrote on are just Avery labels. These are the pics from LA. My son was uber excited to Jose Luis Orozco perform. They listen to him a lot at school and my girls have been listening to my son sing his songs for two years and know most of them.
The back of the insert:
It was a festival of children's literacy and they were giving away several great free books. My kids were excited and I was impressed. I was a teacher for 7 years so I have high standards with kids books. These were awesome!
We had a genuine Mexican food lunch and the kids liked watching the cooks make tortillas from some stairs on the side.
Raegan's favorite part was getting churros from The Churro Man. If you ever go to Olvera Street in LA, go see him! He's in a little side shoot from the little walking part where are the little stores are. His churros are filled. I believe she's eating one full of chocolate ganache right there. I'd go back just for the churros. No joke. We tried caramel, chocolate, and strawberry. We decided to share 3 of them since we're not used to enough sugar for us all to get our own. :) They were all fabulous. I've got to try to recreate them at home. :)
And a cookbook update....
If you missed it in this post, I'm writing a cookbook. It's all about how to incorporate more veggies into your diet. Let me clarify, it's NOT vegetarian. There are some recipes that would qualify, but that's not my point. My point in writing it is just to up the intake of veggies in our regular food. I'm still on track for publishing October 2014! My kids and husband are tasting things right and left! I'm excited and might have to post a recipe or two as a sneak peek soon.
