Project Life Update: Week Fifteen...all digital

I don't know if it was laziness...which turned out to not be laziness because it took waaaaay more time than I anticipated, but I went all digital this week.  I started doing my PL layout this week and had several digital elements that I wanted to include, so after some playing, I finally have everything finished.  I will still print these all off as 4x6 or 3x4 and slip them in their respective pockets.   I haven't printed them, so no full page spread to share.
Used Marcy Penner's Captured collection and Bananafish Studio Micro Scrappers.  Picked up these new goodies last week. LOVE these!
Like the journaling says...I'm not usually motivated enough to spend an entire day cleaning...especially when the kids are around.  Today was odd.
additional card below with proof of my clean closet:
Also journaling card from Madi's birthday part at Lucky Strick...see next photo
Lots of iphone photos...very bad lighting...not the best photos, so I used a collage made right on my phone!  Speaking of my phone...
I have problems.

Since I don't usually print things at home, I just make sure everything can be printed on a 4x6 photo...which means 2 journal cards on one 4x6 photo.  Saves money with prints.  The other one is how we made a paper chain countdown for Bryce's birthday.  
Another little iphone collage with washi tape and label tape.  I did all this before I posted it on instagram, so I just had to upload the photo and it was almost ready to go!  Just put it on a journal card and added some text with the date.
Most likely I will cut these down and put them in 3x4 pockets.  What a temp change over 5 days!
This funny little boy has added some big new words to his vocabulary lately.  I had to write these down because they sound so funny coming from his almost four year old mouth.  

I am totally jumping on the QR Code bandwagon.  I have to say...this is BRILLIANT!  I have wanted to include videos of the kids somehow, but it just seemed like a ton of work.  This is SO simple!  I am going to do these all the time from now on!  What an easy way to organize videos chronologically without having to burn dvd's and actually play them!  I'm so excited about this!!!  (I smudged the code because I was a little creeped out about my partially naked kids in the tub.  The video is set to private anyway...)
And lastly, my niece Charlotte's b-day was this week too, so we celebrated with her on Sunday.  Lots of parties this week! 

Hopefyully I can get to Costco and print these photos.  Hopefully I can update with a finished layout in the page protectors.  ...and can we please talk about PAGE PROTECTORS???  Loving the new plastics Becky is coming out with.  Yay!  The pockets look amazing.  Can't wait to add some more new designs to my album this year.  Fun, Fun, Fun.

Your digital stuff looks fabulous. I need to find the time to play around with it more because that is the way I've been trying to go. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love your pages and all the digi inspiration! I love how you out the photo templates onto the journalling cards..I haven't tried that before! Thanks for sharing :)

All digi turned out well! So many different uses of digital washi too :) I just love how you documented mopping the floor. I always feel like I need A LOT of praise and recognition when I do it (which is never, ha!)
