Although we made our annual weekend trip to the Adirondacks, the big event in September was Skylar's third birthday. I had a lot of fun embellishing the birthday pages, using stamps and die cuts from my card making supplies.
I added a die cut and a stamp from the Monthly Moments set by Papertrey Ink to a photo this month. I like it a lot. The other noteworthy event from the month was going to our first Food Truck Rodeo at the Public Market. I don't know how we missed these all summer. This was the last one, and it was a lot of fun. There were probably 20-30 food trucks set up around the perimeter of the Public Market downtown. The choices were amazing---wings, Thai, Chinese, barbecue, sandwiches, Cuban . . . We finally decided on comfort food: mac and cheese because we'd heard so much about Mac'Rollin. It was a bit of a wait in line, but worth it. There's live music, too, and the crowd was as diverse as the food offerings.
I found the digital stamp by Katie Pertiet to create this filler card for the Food Truck Rodeo.
I recently purchased two Market Kits from Papertrey Ink: Party Pops and Clipsters. Both came in handy. The candles and banner on the title card (from the Midnight edition of Project Life) came from the Party Pops kit. I wanted to document the transformation of the swing set from a pile of boards to the completed, and truly enjoyed, final product. And I scanned both sides of the invitation to include in the layout.
The photo of Skylar before the party is one of my favorites from the whole year. By the time the party was over, she'd had enough of photos, but I loved this one of Matt and Betsy, even if Skylar is hiding.
This card gave me a chance to include one more photo of the birthday girl and play with my new goodies. The same banner from the previous page, and one of the Clipster clips.
I've taken a couple of days break from Project Life, but am four months down, and five to go. That's pushing it to be done by the end of the month, but I haven't given up!
