Project Life: Week 7

This year is going by so fast!  I can’t believe that 7 weeks of 2012 are already gone. Sometimes I don’t love that times goes by so fast, but I do love that I have those weeks documented for my family.

This week was a really full week for us.  I recently started using Instagram and this week I took a lot of pictures using that app.  So much fun! I’m enjoying learning about all the different filters.  My instagram user name is iamjujublog if you would like to follow me.  If you use instagram too leave your user name in the comments and I’ll follow you back.

So let’s take a look at this week’s pages shall we?  I had 2 inserts this week.  One is a baseball card page protector and the second is my weekly 6×12 page protector with a blog post from last week.  This week I wrote about the speculation of Halle Berry’s daughter being autistic that was in the news.  You can read that post here. Below is the entire spread, including the 2 inserts.

Here is the layout without the inserts.  On the left I used the backside of Design B and the right side is Design F.  I’ve really enjoyed mixing up my page protectors. Keeps me from getting bored.

The left side of the layout I added an old, but fun “everyday” embellishment from Scenic Route. Oh how I miss that company.  Loved their stuff.  I added the sticker from the pair of Toms I bought this past weekend along with the business card from Melrose Vintage, a lovely shop in Phoenix.  I spent the afternoon shopping with my sister Jenny and we picked up a cool vintage bread pan at another shop that I helped organize her project life goodies in.  You can see her post about that organization here.

Sorry about the glare on my pages.  The lighting in my house is a bit wonky today. The right side of the layout includes my movie photos which I combined into on 4×6.  I also added the red chevron bag that I picked up at Melrose Vintage.  I know that you can order them online from several different Etsy shops as well.  I added an old Scenic Route chipboard piece to the front of the bag.  The bag includes a note to my husband.  This was a great way to add a private note to him.

Here’s a close up view.  I loved the green “My Favorite” page that I tore out of one of my Smash pads.  I added some words that I read that are so powerful.  They were said by a gal named Amy Spencer.  She just published this new book.  I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!  The “Everyday Moments” & “Love this” is from the lovely Teresa Collins.

I used a baseball page protector to include a bunch of my instagram photos.  I used some of the older journal cards from a previous Becky Higgin’s kit to mount my photos on.  I got the “moments like this” journal card here.

The backside also includes a couple more instagrams, the packaging from the girls’ valentine’s candy they shared with their classes, & a few tags I had in my stash.

Here is a closeup shot of my blog post insert from this week.

So there you have it.  I am linking up again with The Mom Creative as well as One Happy Mama.  Head over to both of these links for some great Project Life inspiration.  If you have questions please leave them in the comments as I have had quite a few and I’m working on a post for this weekend that will answer them.

Hope you all have a great week!
