I've been working here and there on Project Life, but with all the rain this past week, it seemed like a good day to hunker down and finally complete the past few months and call them done.
Today I'm going to share pages from August. The main things this month were camping - Boy Scout and Girl Scout - and getting ready for a new school year, and a new school. Ah yes, the joys of middle school. And lockers. Rachel's counting down the days until she gets a locker, too.
The start of each month for 2014 is a Becky Higgins Design H page. I've highlighted the two overriding events in August - camp and middle school (and the joy of lockers). The flip side highlights a trip to Eastern Market in DC. It was a field trip as part of a photography class I took through the Art League of Alexandria.
I also used a Design A page for the month. The front side is all about camp - tents, swaps and face painting (sigh..). I broke out Tim Holtz's new Alphanumeric thinlit dies for the camp name. I really like these dies. They are magnetic and easily stick to the plate, so you don't easily lose them.
I really love this Slug a Bug stamp from the Cocoa Daisy's July kits and was really excited to use it -- although not so excited about the sharing the story of me running up a boulder and putting a big old hole in the radiator....
And the rest of the month - ticket stubs, the start of Doctor Who's Season 8 and a fun shopping day at Tyson's Corner where the kids found this amazing candy shop.
For the cards, I used items from both Cocoa Daisy's monthly Day in the Life and Studio Calico's Project Life kits. The stars and the 'take a hike' are from the Poet Society kit. The transparency graph is old Maya Road. I have been looking for those puffy quotes - I swear they are from a kit.
I've linked up some of the supplies that I used that are available outside of these kits. Full disclosure: these are affiliate links, and I would recieve a small commission if you decide to purchase through them. Any money I receive just helps me offset the cost of this blog.
