Project Life: Week Thirty-One

Good morning! I sat down last week and looked at the number of posts I wanted to squeeze onto the blog before the end of the year, and realized that I was probably crazy, but we're going to see how it goes. There are a few things I'm completely okay with carrying over, like my Project Life album. That way I have a few weeks in the new year to get ahead on my pages before sharing them here, and it'll be one less thing for me to stress about. On the other side of that, are a bunch of things I want to post before the end of this month (Thanksgiving stuff).

Today I'm sharing my layout for Week 31. This is the week my nephew was born! There was a lot going on, but very few pictures were being taken (by me at least), so I tried to keep this layout pretty simple. I used Studio Calico, and Dear Lizzy

Here's the left side. This side was mostly focused around Sunday (the day my nephew was born). It was a crazy day. She went into labor that morning, and by about 1pm she had the baby. We went up around 3 to meet my nephew. My parents were watching my niece, and she was over the moon excited to have a baby brother. I included the photo my brother sent me, just after he was born (top right) and a photo of my niece holding him for the first time. They both look so tiny!! The bottom right is a photo from a couple of days later. I made a set of framed owls for my nephews nursery.
I cut them out on my silhouette, assembled them, and bought frames for them. They loved that I made them to match the bedding and mobile I bought them.

Here's the right side. I included two photos of our slightly neglected cats, and two photos of my niece. We stopped by to drop off the gifts for my nephew, and she asked me to hang out while she played in the pool. It was so hot out that she was lucky she could cool off in the pool.

I can't believe this was back at the end of July. The temperature has gotten cooler with it being fall, and simply looking back and remembering this week, makes me miss the warmer temperatures a little bit, but I'm loving the current sweater weather.

Have a great day!
