I can’t believe it is already time to post my project life pages. Last week was a crazy week! It started off well and then I was hit with a bout of vertigo. Things were spinning for a couple of days, but I’m feeling much better.
I absolutely love documenting our everyday life this way. It takes a lot of the guess work out of scrapbooking, but also allows me to add my own flair & style. Five weeks into using project life, I am definitely in the habit of keeping receipts, tags, movie stubs, etc. to add to my album. I LOVE adding that extra stuff.
This week I didn’t take as many pictures, but I had quite a bit of “extras”. This was by far the most fun I’ve had assembling my pages. Below is my layout, not including the 6×12 insert I added.
Below is the left page. I continue to love including a picture of the movies I watch along with the movie stub. The past couple of weeks I have enjoyed seeing a matinee movie after I drop the kids off at school. I’m thinking it should become my new weekly ritual! I also included a journaling card telling about my issues with vertigo this week as it was a pretty big part of the week. Being pretty limited with what I could do for the latter part of the week, I did a lot of blog surfing. I shared some of my favorite craft/creative/story telling blogs on the “Great Blogs & Sites” journal card. The card came out of a Smash journal pad I picked up at Michael’s.
Below is the right side of my layout. I loved adding the pictures of my girls in the photo booth.
I used some rub-ons that I’ve had for a long time on the journal grid card. I also added the fortunes from our takeout food this week to a journal card. Hailey loved them & can’t wait for the thrilling times & the treasures that lie ahead!
I wanted to document the songs that Skylar has been listening to a LOT this week. I love that she loves to listen to Christian music or “Jesus music” as she calls it. I also included a picture of a journal I made for my sister. It is a moleskin journal (sold in packs of 3) from Target. I added some washii tape, letters, & stitched across. This literally took me 4 minutes to make. She loves to make lists & I thought it would be a perfect place for her to keep them.
I used this 6×12 journal template by Ali Edwards to include a blog post that I wrote this week about the misuse of the word “retarded”. You can read that post here. The journaling continues on the back of the page. I will never stop trying to get people to stop misusing that word.
Well there you have it! I am linking up again with The Mom Creative and her project life Tuesday group. I have really enjoyed visiting other people’s blogs and seeing their take on project life. I have even made some new friends along the way!
Make time this week to document your story, it is so important!
Have a great week!
