Project Life 2015: Weeks 9-10

So this album is going to have some single pages and then some spreads.  Weeks 9-10 are single pages, but I thought I would post them at the same time and show what they will look like side-by-side. 
I have to say I'm really enjoying NOT journaling each week.  I like the photos speaking for themselves.  And I LOVE the little snippets I'm including of the funny things Jeralyn says.

Joshua's Journal: Weeks 10-15

Wow!  Well, I didn't realize it's been a couple of weeks since I last posted.  Oops!  So to make up for it I'm going to post 5 weeks of Joshua's Journal.

Birthday #2

I thought I would break things up with the Project Life and Baby Journal posts to share a page I made of Jeralyn's 2nd birthday.  I'm not sure why it took me this long to scrap/document it, but here it is:
The theme for her birthday was turtles (she LOVES turtles!).  The colors were green and purple.  Honestly, this was a challenging page for me to scrap because I'm not really that fond of purple (although the shade of Jeralyn's dress is my favorite shade when it comes to purple).  And I'm not really into bright green.  I'm more of a teal green kind of girl.  Or in the (back in the day) Stampin' Up! world, "Garden Green".  Not mint green (which is what I had to work with here).  I was tempted to turn most of the photos to black & white, but I wanted to preserve the colors so Jeralyn could (one day) look back and see what colors I made her cake.  I played with this page several times over the last few days.  I'm happy with it.

Joshua's Journal: Week 9

Hello!  I'm back with another week for Joshua's baby journal.  I am several weeks "ahead", which really means I'm just LOTS of weeks behind.  Ha!  He will be 1 year in 2 weeks + 2 days!
This is one of my favorite weeks that I scrapped (so far):
I even had some of his pages printed and put into his baby album.  Maybe someday I will take pictures of what it looks like, and maybe even Jeralyn's album (which is more complete looking).  That reminds me, I want to (finally) scrapbook her 2nd birthday.  So I'm off to do just that!
