Project Life 2014: Week 2

Hi friends!  Happy to be sharing week 2 of Project Life with you today.  I am so enjoying the simplicity this year.  Let’s just jump right to the pages shall we?

On the left-side of the page, I used journaling cards from the Jade, Seafoam, and Clementine editions.

On the right-hand side I used cards from the Seafoam kit & Holidays mini-kit, as well as the grid cards.

There wasn’t anything really huge that happened during this week.  It was our transition week back to school and after-school activities.  It was simple, but these pictures are a beautiful reminder of our everyday life.  I hope my girls will love looking back on our everyday lives years from now & be thankful that I documented life this way.  My favorite picture from this week is the picture of Hailey looking through our 2012 Project Life album.  I woke up Saturday morning to find her flipping through the album.  I heard her say “Oh!  I totally forgot that we did that!”. So thankful that I documented everyday life & that she is able to remember the simple things that brought her joy!

I hope to be sharing weeks 3 & 4 with you next week.

Thanks for stopping by. I am also linking up with The Mom Creative.  Check out all the other great Project Life pages shared.

Project Life 2014: Week 1

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday!  I’m happy to be sharing my first page from 2014.  If you are here from The Mom Creative link-up, welcome!  My goal for Project Life this year is to keep it simple, focusing on the pictures and journaling. I’m sure that some weeks I’ll add a bit more flair, but overall it will be simple.  Last year  I only got 9 weeks documented and they were not consecutive weeks.  I think I got weeks 1, 2, 25, 26, 27, 40, 41…you get the picture. Instead of beating myself up over it, I’m embracing the 9 weeks that I did get done.  I’m sure most people would be happy to have around 10 layouts a year done.  So let me encourage you to just do what you can! If you miss a week, don’t quit, just keep moving forward!  I might go back and document some weeks from 2013, I might not, but I am moving forward with 2014!

So without further ado, here are my pages:

One thing I am definitely continuing is including a picture of the movies we saw!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

Supplies Used:

Core Kits:  Seafoam, 5th & Frolic, Honey;  “Hello Life” badge & “heart the story” journaling card by Finding Nana;  “imagine” stamp by 7gypsies; bracket stickers are old-school Heidi Swapp that I’ve had in my stash forever.

If you are doing Project Life or you are documenting your everyday life in another way I’d love to see it!  Please leave a link to your pages in the comments and I’ll be sure to pop over and say hi!

That’s it for this week!

Project Life 2013: Weeks 41 & 42

Hello my friends!  Happy to be sharing a couple of weeks of Project Life pages with you today!  The first week I’m sharing is the week that Skylar was hospitalized for extended EEG monitoring & seizure medication change.  I actually put these pages together the morning after we got home.  I wanted to get my thoughts down before I forgot some of the details.

I put these pages together in about an hour, which included the time I took to edit & print the photos.  I love the simplicity of this week!

The next pages I added a few embellishments, but not many.  Again, I enjoyed the simplicity of my pages and really just wanted the focus to be on my pictures & journaling.

I’ve really enjoyed mixing & matching my Project Life kits.  These two weeks used cards from the following editions:  Blush, Honey, Seafoam, & 5th and Frolic.  If you are interested in seeing how I organized all my Project Life Kits together, CLICK HERE!

That’s it for this week!

Project Life 2013: Weeks 1 & 2

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday!  I’m sharing weeks 1 & 2 today as I haven’t shared it yet and I’m on vacation.  The first two weeks of the year were pretty rough for our family.  The first week the girls had bronchitis and sinus infections and the second week we did.

I decided to include both weeks in one layout.  The one thing I love about project life is that it was designed to make memory recording simpler.  No rules!  Last year I found myself getting really stressed out by what I thought I “had” to do.  After we were sick, I realized that I could easily combine those 2 weeks and just call it done. I’m really happy with the way they turned out.  Giving myself permission not to follow the “norm” was really freeing!

My layouts were really simple and it is mainly just pictures and journaling.  I used the Seafoam Edition and a couple other miscellaneous items.

There you have it!  Simple and recorded.  Those two weeks were exhausting and full of medicine, tissues, sleeping, lots of tv watching, and meals from friends.

Tomorrow, I’m going to be sharing some of the fun games we have been playing while we’ve been on vacation.  I hope you are enjoying your summer (or your winter…depending on where you live).

I’m linking up with The Mom Creative!  Head over there and see all the other projcect life layouts this week.
