Happy Monday (NOT!) Today was one of those days, but luckily it's almost time to crawl into my comfy bed. Before I do, I wanted to post the next challenge here at Week 2 Week!
Here is my page for this week!
I'm so excited to be at the 2nd week of June in my PL album. Why? It's the week we got the call we were going to be parents. My "twinkle twinkle little star, do you know how loved you are" quote card for this week's prompt comes from Me and My Big Idea's Baby Girl pack.
Here are some close ups of other cards:
That phone from Doodlebug was the perfect embellie for my journaling.
Another card from the MAMBI baby girl pack, which I added my alpha stickers to make a personal subtitle.
I'm loving these Amy Tan transparent alphas! Had to include a before collage of our nursery before it went PINK :)
What are you playing for this week? How about a quote stamp set and oh so cute Studio Calico anchor punch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I love all the quote cards available for PL and can't wait to see the one you choose for your spread this week. You could also make your own! Have a great week.
I am so sorry to be late in posting our winner for the sketch challenge....life just gets in the way sometimes.
Our winner is:
Elaine, if you could please email your mailing address, I will get your prize out to you this week.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Suzanne will be back later to post our newest challenge.

Today we have a special treat! I have invited Michelle Bostinelos to be our very first guest designer here at Week-2-Week. I first got to know Michelle through her awesome blog Busy Being Happy. She is an awesome photographer and her pictures are the star of her Project Life pages. I sent her the sketches for the current challenge and she worked 3 of them into her Week 34 pages.
Here is what she had to say:
"My date card is inspired by the 2nd 4x6 you have listed. I have a 3x4 card (orange with stars) that I used washi tape and sequins inspired by the 1st 3x4 sketch on your list. And another 4x6 card that I use the three stars at the top."
Aren't her pages awesome? I especially love the addition of the 8x10 enlargement in the above picture. AND...she stamped on it. LOVE IT!
You can check out Michelle's blog right HERE and see ALL of her awesome work and get to know her. She is very inspirational in many ways. Thanks Michelle for letting me feature your work.
Please do not forget our current challenge to use one or more of these sketches:

Sandi here and I am so excited to bring you our next challenge here at Week-2-Week. This time around I am challenging you to use one or more of these sketches for your individual cards. I saved these sketches to my Project Life Pinterest page awhile ago and I am not sure where they came from but I did not draw them or think them up myself.
I used the top left sketch for my title card and the 2nd row middle card also. Here is page 1 of week #23:
I used lots of Bella Blvd on the page because well, I love BB and it was on my desk. I am starting to include what I am calling my Pin of the week on my spreads. This week it was the Chicago poster. Do you Pinterest? Do you include some of your favorite pins on your pages?
So my challenge is to use at least one of these sketches on your spread and make sure to let me know which one you used. Our prize this time is the much sought after Becky Higgins Project Life corner rounder:
Suzanne and I are hoping with the return of the kiddos to school, maybe we will have more participation in our challenges. Will you help us spread the word this week? Thanks!
