I am linking up once again this week with Jessica over at The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. So much inspiration over there each week.
This week I have weeks 2 & 3 to share. I got behind a bit, mostly because I was striving for perfection and loosing touch with my creativity...but I think I have my groove back and these 2 weeks came together quickly and I am so happy with the finished pages. I am really loving capturing the everyday stuff...the things I wouldn't put on a layout, the things I probably would never take a picture of....but these are the things I want to remember.
Week 2: January 9 - 16
Full page spread with an insert. JT was in a play and I inserted the program. I used a 8 1/2 x 11 page protector, cut down to size and stitched up the side.
Left page close up: Everyday things, homework, the first snowfall and our Thursday routine. I also was able to capture one of my husbands little quirks. I love the colors in the Clementine Kit as they match with so many things I have in my stash. I love using up bits and pieces that I have had around forever.
Right page close up: Kelsey had a project so I documented the making of and the finished project. I also included pics from JT's play. More everyday life with my Friday routine (the littles are sound asleep and so cute...but I needed to block their faces for privacy as they don't belong to me) & pics of our skiis outside the lodge as we finally got enough snow to spend the weekend on the mountain.
Week 3 January 16 - 22
Full page with insert: This was such a busy week and I had a hard time choosing which pictures to include although I think I did a good job of showcasing our week. I included an insert here again of Bob's ticket to the AFC Playoff game. Again I used a 8 1/2 x 11 page protector trimmed and sewn. The bottom contains confetti that was blown into the stands after the Patriots won a trip to the Super Bowl...I love how Bob thought to bring that home for our PL book...even in its infant stages...he gets it.
Full page with backside of insert:
Left side close up: Cub scout trips, basketball games and a iphone pic of my friend and I doing meal prep (her face is blocked for privacy). I needed a filler so I used a quote I found on pinterest and made a 3 x 4 block in Microsoft Word, added the text and printed it out...perfect. Sorry about the wonky pictures...I haven't found the perfect non-glare photo taking spot/time just yet.
Right side close up: Our first snowman and significant snow of the year, more playoff game pics and a little treat for me after a Colleen meeting. Instead of putting journaling in my 3 x 4 spots this week, I choose to combine it all on one 4 x 6 card. I used the number stickers that came with the Clementine kit to put on the pictures I was highlighting on the card and corresponded the numbers in the text. I made the journaling card in Microsoft Word and just printed it out and cut to size.
Those little badge buttons I am using to protect everyones identity are from Marcy Penner. I think they are currently out of stock but she has some wonderful things in her shop perfect for PL.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have time I would love your feedback. If you have any questions on items I used...please just ask.
