I can’t believe I’m sharing week 9 of project life. This year is just flying by & I’m so glad that I have all 9 weeks documented. I went back and flipped through my album this week and I loved how seeing the little details just transported me back to the week I was looking at. I love that project life does that!
I am still loving documenting our lives this way. I only wish I had started using project life years ago. I have definitely found my rhythm to putting my layouts together each week. I usually print off my photos Saturday night or Sunday depending on how my weekend goes. I don’t work on my layouts through the week, I just jump right in on Sunday. Often times I work on it for a bit and if I get stuck I just walk away and come back later. I try to have my pages done by Sunday night or Monday morning so that I can photograph them Monday with good light. I like to have my post totally done on Monday so that all I have to do Tuesday morning is link up with The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama. I have found that this is what works for me. I think that is key!
So onto this weeks layouts. As always, below is a look at the entire layout, including the insert.
I had 2 shorter blog posts this week that I wanted to include. I used these 6×12 journal templates by Ali Edwards to include this post that recounted a conversation with my girls in the car this week on the front & this funny story about Skylar on the back. I LOVE including my blog posts in my project life.
Below is a picture of the entire layout without the insert.
I didn’t have as many pictures this week as Hailey was home sick the whole latter part of the week. I do love how I was able to include more journaling and some other thoughts I had.
Hailey asked for a new youth Bible this week and read it constantly. I loved that I was able to capture this moment and share with her how proud I am of her that she is reading her Bible every day. I included the Kohl’s cash that I used to get Hailey several new t-shirts. Clothes shopping for her is never easy as she has a lot of sensory issues. I was thrilled that I was able to find cute, modest t-shirts that were tagless.
The “hello there life” and the “remember this” journal cards are from the same set that I used last week by Kristina & Crystal. I really love this set of cards & look forward to using them more. I haven’t stitched on my pages the last several weeks, but this week I stitched quite a bit and I was really happy to be using my machine again. I just like the extra touch it adds to my pages. Here are a couple close-ups.
And a close-up of the right side.
I used one of these journal sheets from Marta Writes that my sister gave me. She uses these in her pages all the time & she gave me a journal of them when I was at her house a few weeks ago. I love the simple writing prompt that captures the moment.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Make it great!
