Count With Me

Every day I count my blessings. One of those blessings is my youngest nephew; I call him Coco Puff. I had so much fun picking him him up from school on Tuesday. He is having fun counting. He counts up to 20 with very little help. I caught him on video counting and could not wait to include it in this month’s Mini Project LIfe entry.

My Funny Valentine

Wednesday night the Jellybean and I decorated his valentines box. He asked to make a dragon and I could not say no. I found inspiration in a Pintrest post and with some scrapbook paper and glue, we made it happen. He told me that one of his friends stopped and said, “Cool!” Yay! This is the February entry for his Mini Project Life. I spent more time on this mini entry than I do on my standard scrapbook pages. (Once it took me 8hrs to create an ultra-simple 8.5×11 page, yes…I am THAT kind of scrapper)

Mini Project Life

After the boys spent the night I decided to create a small version of Project Life for them. I picked up a 4×6 photo album from Target. I am committing to creating at least 1 entry for each boy a month. The album I picked up contains enough pages for 24 entries for each kid. I will use the extra pockets for extra entries and to hold extra ephemera.

I created the title page using the Paislee Press Wood Grain Template Cards from the-lilypad.com. The wood veneer camera is from Studio Calico.

Below are the entries I created using digital templates and kits I have been dying to use.

I used a QR code for a cute video of the Jellybean and a simple 4×6 calendar template from Paislee Press. I found a font that is close to my own handwritting and love using it in all my scarpbooking. It is called Jenna Sue and can be found at daFont.com.

The entry I created for the Coco Puff was inspired by a txt my mother sent to us when she noticed my dad was watching TV in the same manner as my nephew did a few nights before. I had fun creating his page with more digital supplies I’ve been collecting. Below is the list of goodies used:
