Project Life 2017 Week 06 | Embellishing the Layout Using Studio Calico Confidant Kit!!!!

Hi guys! Today I am finishing up the hybrid portion of my layout for Week 06 in my 2017 Project Life album! This is my first time working with the Studio Calico Documenter kits - this one is Confidant from February.

Yesterday I shared with you the digital portion of creating my layout in Photoshop, and today the layout has been printed here at home on my wide format Canon Pixma. The digital layout was created in Photoshop CC using Pocket Guide templates from Paislee Press and the March ROAR MPM kit, both from The Lilypad. Now I am ready to embellish and finish it up!

Most of this week's story revolved around me being sick with the flu - I was sick in total about 10 days. But you know how we moms do - we struggle to put ourselves to bed and so we continue going along, pushing through. There are photos from half of the week as I pushed through, and then I came to a complete stop to finally rest and recover.

I began the layout with the date card and couldn't wait to use this rubber February word! Notice too how I layered the puffy sticker over the two patterned paper rectangles to tie them together. They now read as one card together. How fun!

I really liked using the hexagon stickers that were included in the Confidant kit. Those add a nice touch of color and simple embellishment!

For the right hand side I included my list journaling of all our tasks that week. Yes, the numbering is actually designed to notate the dates of the month, but I left them just as they are for whimsy. I can also say that those days I was sick felt like a whole month!

I am so thankful that life is so filled with all sorts of joy amidst the sickness and struggle. These Project Life layouts absolutely remind me of that weekly, the hard with the good, the happy with the bad. Finding Natalie's stuffies all lined up on her headboard made us smile so much!

So when you're sick as a dog, what do you take photos of? Simple, just what is in front of you. Tomato soup, the kids laughing at the dinner table, Alan ever at my side. All reminders that I am taken care of, and all the things I am so very grateful for.
