Memory Keeping … Digital Project Life | Week 6 & 7 with new Amy Tangerine Plus One

You guys! I am seriously so excited to share this amazing kit with you today …

it’s the Amy Tangerine Plus One Mini Kit … but there is nothing mini about it. It rocks big time!

There is lots of white and black … with the trendy handwritten brushed look, bold colors that can be be used for a really bright layout or toned down with just bits of color depending on which journal cards you use, and just the funnest little sayings & artwork.  I think it is safe to say I am GAH, GAH over this kit.

It is on sale at DigitalProjectLife.com. Go check it out … along with all the Creative Team’s lovely pages.

Here is how Week 6 came together:

I want to share some fun pages with the amazing products created by Mirjam of Pink Reptile Designs. Mirjam has a fun, bold & eclectic look to her designs … which I absolutely adore. Her kits always have sweet, unique elements, with lots of had drawn pieces and the colors she chooses for her kits are so bright and fun!

Memory Keeping … My Digital Scrapbook Gallery

Hello … I hope you are easing into your week, now that Monday is behind us.

Today I realized I have not been very good at sharing my favorite digital layouts here … despite the fact that I’ve been creating so many each month in 2014. Seriously … I think this has been a record so far for the most pages created.

If you like my style you can follow my layouts on my Pinterest board or at my gallery over at My Scrapbook Art.

I won’t bore you with too many, but here a few faves from my gallery over at The Lilypad:

What’s for Dinner … Weekly Meatless Meal Planning

I love making lists. But there is one list that I do every week, that I really dread.

It’s the weekly grocery shopping list. << insert groan>>

Constantly having to come up with new dinner ideas is not always fun when life is busy. There’s also the fact that we have lots of different types of eaters in our home … we have a meat eater, a vegan and 2 vegetarians. So, as you can imagine, it is a bit of a challenge to please everyone.

With today’s awareness of health & nutrition and food related diseases & allergies … I’m betting many of you can relate?

Combine the challenge of pleasing everyone’s dietary needs with Spring Sport Season, which basically means I have been running around an awful lot in the late afternoon/early evenings to get the kids to and from all their after school activities, and you have a recipe for complete lack of time being on my side when it comes to dinner preparations.

So I am always on the hunt for quick, easy but healthy dinner options that are adaptable to our varied needs.

After scouring Pinterest, here’s what the meals look like for this coming week.

weekly meal planningSunday 1-Hour Vegan Pot Pies [minimalistbaker.com]

Monday Slow Cooker Vegan Brown Rice Mexican Bowl [kalynskitchen.com]

Tuesday Harissa Lentils and Cauliflower [naturallyella.com]

Wednesday Mexican Bean Salad [kitchme.com] with Caprese Paninis (catered to the individual taste of each family member but usually with tomato, basil and roasted peppers … sometimes eggplant & fresh mozzarella)

Thursday leftovers, very classy!

Friday Zucchini, Black Bean and Rice Skillet [readyseteat.com]

Saturday Avocado Black Bean Enchiladas [cremedelacrumb.com]

I love that all of these meals can be catered to my families individual eating needs. For meat eaters, simply grill some chicken on Sunday. Slice, store in the refrigerator and add to a dish as needed through out the week. For dishes with cheese, for the vegetarian cheese-lovers, keep one side of the skillet cheese-free for the vegan eaters.

It’s easy to please many different dietary needs with these dishes. It’s easy to add in a bit of meat & change up the white rice with brown rice or quinoa.

I’d love to hear about what’s for dinner at your house this week?

Bon Appetit!
