Project Life Weeks 13-16

Mmmkay, have I mentioned how much I love Project Life? I used to take a ton of photos of little things and collect all sorts of memorabilia that would get shoved in a box or drawer somewhere, especially when I went on trips. This time, when Husband and I took a trip to Italy for his big Four-Oh, I actually used the little bits and pieces and everyday detail photos. Pretty awesome! Plus, I have a fairly detailed account of our Italian adventures documented in the journaling. So, are you ready for Weeks 13-16, including a double dose of Italy-trip fun? Here ya go!

It was a big month! Easter, Italy trip, and Husband's 40th, wow! That's it for now, friends! I'll be back later this week with a special project that I made with Crate Paper's awesomely vintage DIY Shop line :)

Backlit Photos

My girls had a couple of friends over for a play date, and I thought it was the perfect time for an impromptu photo mini shoot. The weather in the Midwest has been total crap this spring, but since the sun was actually shining I wanted to try some backlit shots. And I followed a tip I found on Pinterest while working with kids--tell them not to smile and no giggling allowed. They laughed hysterically and I ended up with some authentic smiles. What could be better than that?

The last one is my favorite. Could they be any cuter? I am totally biased of course. But seriously?? Oh, and just so you know, the crap weather returned. It was snowing today. Yep, snowing.
