may 2015 layouts :: pocket memory keeping / project life

I completed my layouts for May early this morning. I journaled last night and embellished a little this morning.

I'm so happy to be done!

Addy asked to put on a bathing suit in early May when it was not the time for it. It was random, and a sweet reminder that she's a little kid who likes to dress up. I had to take a few pictures. Anyway, I included two too many calendars on this layout (as I've done before). #sorrynotsorry. I love them!

I documented our Mother's Day celebration above. I included the card Jesse got for me. Behind it is the card Evie got for me. I wanted it to be something that could be read through, so I didn't put them in a protective sleeve.
This is the layout with the cards removed:

I included an insert with a few extra pictures of my girls, and on the back of the insert I included a questionnaire my girls filled out about me for Mother's Day. I scanned the originals and shrunk them to a 4x6 size to fit in my book:

On the right side (of the layout above), I included an outing with my family for my sister-in-law Sarah's birthday and below I included the Greek yogurt recipes I shared on my blog. It's 6 weeks worth. (I needed to catch up as you can see).

Above I documented my sister Jasmine's Mickey/Minnie Mouse birthday celebration (on the left). I also documented Evie's good friend's birthday "cupcake wars" celebration (on the right).

Finally, I shared pictures of our garden on the left and the first week of June on the right. I'm sharing the summer months in a separate book. I've shared most of June there. See our "summer break diary 2015" here... What I'm saying is I'm caught up!!
