Project Life weeks 39 & 41

This is real life friends! You may have noticed by the post title that this is weeks 39 and 41 of PL. I didn't do week 40 as there simply weren't photos for it.
Why sweat the small stuff! I simply and joyfully left it out!

This what the last few weeks have looked like:

Things I am loving this week:
It is no secret that I am a big fan of anything paislee press create. I love their minimalist designs and gorgeous kits. I treated myself to a new kit this month called 'heirloom' and love the papers and colours in it. Think navy, bright green and creams.

Techniques I have tried:
I made a simple mask for my birthday photo. I knew I wanted 22 to feature so just used a transparency to get the effect.

Photos documented:
Of course a fun birthday photo had to make its way into there. I also used a lot of photos of my room from my last blog post. I did this with my student house last academic year and am so pleased I will have recorded both places in my PL album.
We went to a wedding this Saturday so that makes up most of one page. My old housemates and I also treated ourselves to a meal out at Chiquitos and had to get some photos wearing the sombrero!

Thoughts on the project:
I feel much more relaxed now I have caught up. I have set aside Saturday mornings to work on the project and like that I have a dedicated time to enjoy PL.
I can't believe we are up to week 41! Where has the year gone...

I always love your PL spreads, and always find some inspiration there. I like the idea of a dedicated time to work on PL. I tried that early this summer, but let it get away from me. Love the transparency on your birthday photo, and I'm also a fan of Paislee Press!

Great pages.Abi.....love what you've done with your birthday photo.
How clever of your brothers....I love the idea of personalised tea as a gift...could you let me know the name of the company....I can't quite read it on the photo!!

Wait. What? NO WEEK 40?!?! Just kidding. ;o)

I always love seeing your project life pages and I SUPER LOVE that 22 transparency. I would love to find a tutorial on how to do that. If you know of one could you send it my way? (Thanks!) xo

I always enjoy seeing how you present your photos and memories in your PL pages. Very inspiring.
