Highlights of our California Adventure

We went to California for my brother Josh's Law School Graduation!  I'm so proud of him.  He worked hard and we've barely seen him the last three years.  His hard work paid off though, because he graduated Magna Cum Laude and 9th in his class.

After graduation, we walked the streets of Long Beach...Okay, we just went to lunch and to go see the Queen Mary.

Then, we went down to Laguna Beach for a few minutes so the kids could play in the ocean.

Then we went to my other brothers house for a dinner celebration.

My brothers, me and my Step Sister

Then we spent the next two days at Disneyland.

 No I did not use a selfie stick for this selfie!

 My brother is a huge dork.

Look how thrilled Josh is to ride Thunder Mountain with me!

Then our last stop was Universal Studios.

 The closest Erik and I will get to the Tour De France.

It was a quick but fun trip!

The Date 8.5 by 11 Layout with Process Video

I decided to go with an 8.5 x 11 layout just to change it up a little.  I wanted to go clean and simple for this layout.  Wolfie and I went on a breakfast date.  He was beyond thrilled, I tell you.  Don't you just love preteen kids?  Anyhow, here is the process video for you.

May Wrap Up

I don't know if I feel as though May flew by, or if it was the longest month ever.  It was a busy month with a lot of things going on.  My uncle passed on May 5.  The weeks leading up to his death were very hard on us..for him and for all of our family.  It is still very sad that he is gone.  I think about him a lot.  On top of that, we had school ending this month so I was frantically trying to get everything done before we left town for my brother's graduation.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Law School!!!  I will post those pics later.

I just wanted to finish up by posting all of my layouts for this month in case you missed them.  I also want to share some awesome new products in the Clique Store.  In addition to that, I'm looking forward to summer and being home with the kids.

I ordered this from the Clique Store...I'm officially on the planner bandwagon now.  I just couldn't stop myself when I saw these awesome planners.

I am anxiously awaiting my order.  If you wish to order from Clique Kits, make sure enter the discount code MARIAH10 for ten percent off of your purchases.

Clique Kits Pep Rally

Can you believe it's already been another month and another amazing kit?  I can't.  Time has gone by so fast this go around.  I know you all enjoyed Kat's post.  I have a layout to share with you all today. We are in the full swing of spring here.  We spend a lot of time outside in the yard when the weather warms up.  These are some of the pictures I've taken over the course of the spring.

The layout hits the highlights:  planting the garden, playing, grilling, and just hanging out.  Its been unusually cool, so we haven't put the pool up yet.  That will be the next upcoming project, I guess.  What are your favorite warm weather activities?

Just in case, here is the blog list:

Project Life Weeks 8 and 9

Hello All!  I have a couple of Project Life spreads to share with you today.  I know I've posted about Project Life before and how I'm taking much lighter approach to it this year.  I really am.  I hate to say the "B" word, but I'm Behind.  That's okay.  I'm not panicking.  Life comes up in the midst of Project Life.  I've really stuck by the goals I set back in December.  I really wanted to include more of my life at school.  I spend a lot of time there with my class and I've done that this year.  Every week is not perfect.  My Week 7 took a nosedive, but it's in the album and it's documented.  It's not a great page, but again, that's okay.  First up, I'm going to share my Week 8 Project Life Spread.  I used the Clique Kits National Scrapbooking Day Kit.  This week's spread was a double page layout.  I had to share it because I couldn't just skip ahead to Week Type A personality would be able to handle it, ha.

I also have a process video for you for the Week 8 Spread.

Next is my Week 9 Page.  It is only one page.  It was originally two, but I forgot to print out some of the photos because they weren't linked to Instagram.  Since I mentioned printing, I will tell you I print my photos from two places.  I printed these photos and Week 8's photos from Walgreens.  They are quick and easy.  When I have more time, I order from Persnickety Prints.  I like all of their options.  They offer different sizes and finishes.  They also add borders, if you wish.  I love the way borders look so I usually opt for them. Here is Week 9.  I used the cut aparts in the May Kit.  

It was a very simple and quick layout.  Well, that's all I have for you today.  Don't forget about the Clique Kits Pep Rally tomorrow.  There will be tons of beautiful projects and inspiration along the way.  I hope you have a beautiful day!
