Project Life 2013: Week 38

The Mom Creative

My fun church buddies

working thru a new online study in the book of Ephesians

a daily prompt from CY365, the contents of your bag, thought that would be interesting to document

working on putting together a photo book

my attempt at photographing the moon with my basic camera (no special lenses to capture the details)

Epic fail on the photo book, took the entire day to redo it, I am NOT a digital scrapbooker by far!!

Looking to buy some fancy fish for our now clean but empty aquarium

Week 28's completed pages, very simple and basic, just design A, no inserts
