Create It Thursday: Monster Plate

I have been wanting to make Kendall and Kole a Halloween plate for a few weeks now and I finally got around to it tonight!!  I found a picture of monster hands and used that as inspiration!
I forgot that it is near impossible to get a newborn to unclench their fists so we did Kole's feet instead and I LOVE the way it turned out!!
I just got paint from Hobby Lobby to do this myself!  All you do is use their paint, let it dry for four days, and then follow the baking instructions on the back of the paint!!  

Hope you enjoyed and check out more fun DIYs on Lambert Lately's blog!!

Project Life: Just Add Color

I was able to finally try out the new PL Just Add Color edition and I must say I do love it!!

I also decided that I love the idea of mixing kits in my books now, which can lead to a not good addiction:)

So, I decided to use this kit to start out some of Kole's first day pictures.  I love  how it turned out and had a lot of fun putting this together and choosing all of my 2X2 cards!

So, here is what I came up with!

Sorry I am not the best at taking these pictures I can never seem to get the glare of the page protectors off!

Here is my first page:  Very simple just a few pictures of Kole right after he was born and some journaling!

And the second page:  Again very simple, and I choose to use all of the black and white cards on this side and love how it turned out:)

I will also add in an envelope to include his hospital bracelets and other pieces that we brought home from the hospital!
I think I will continue to use this kit for Kole's baby book, but will also find another "boyish" kit to add in. I am going to use this in Kendall's as well and I also have the Honey edition to use with Kendall's book!
Are you using PL for your babies?

Have you bought the Just Add Color kit?!!

One Month!

It seems absolutely crazy to me that this little man is one month old already! It goes so fast I already know that but it's still insane:)

I decided to take his monthly pictures with his gray chair and a chalk board that will calculate his monthly weight!

I was terrible about updating Kendall's book monthly, so I am hoping that I can do a monthly post about Kole and keep up with it that way....we all know how well I am at keeping up with things!!

So, here goes nothing!

Currently:

Wearing: 0-3 month clothing

Eating: EVERY 3 hours and gaining plenty of weight! Which also means he is waking up every three hours!  Which also means mommy is still not sleeping:)

Sleeping in mommy and daddy's room in the bassinet

Seems to enjoy his bath that Kendall and I love to give him!

Content for a good 10-20 minutes laying under the activity mat.

Currently doesn't enjoy a paci and we are working on it!!!

Met his new baby cousin this month whom is 2 weeks younger than him and 6 pounds lighter (Miles was a premie)


Went to Huber's to do some pumpkin picking!

Showing us sweet smiles when sleeping.

Has a big sister that just adores him!

Have a great weekend!!

Project Life Tuesday: December Daily Preparation

I have been way way behind on my Project Life.  Sad sad, but I am trying to catch up and of course I took advantage of the HSN kits including the Merry and Bright Kit and The Just Add Color Kit.  Both of which I LOVE!!

So, for the past week I have been working on getting my Merry and Bright Kit ready for December Daily.  I love doing December Daily with Ali Edwards:)  It looks like she has released a kit with Studio Calico also!

I decided to use my Merry and Bright Kit for my December Daily album.

So, let's take a look at what I did!!

The first thing I did was think about how I need to set the album up, as in how many pages I needed for each day.

I decided to do half a page for the weekdays, a full page for the weekends, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.

I also decided to use the first page to put our Christmas Card and the first full page to put pictures of our Christmas tree and house decorations!

So, here is what I came up with!

 This is where our Christmas card will go!!
 Decorating our tree.










Notes:
1.  I will rearrange for sure as I actually start taking pictures for my December Daily:)
2.  I haven't put all of my cards in yet, because I am not sure how many pictures I will have for each day!

The best part about using PL is being able to rearrange as I work on it in December!!

I can't wait to start my December Daily with pictures!  I love the holidays!!

And here is a look at the other two albums I have completed in past years!
