Project Life 2013: Week 25

It is so nice to be back sharing my Project Life pages with all of you!  I took quite a long break from blogging and Project Life.  The release of the new editions through Hobby Lobby really got me excited again to work on my weekly pages.  I’m not sure yet how I will be sharing my pages, but decided this week to just jump in with the current week.  It was quite the week with a forrest fire that started 5 miles from our house, Hailey’s interview for private school, and a trip to Bearizona and Flagstaff.

I used the Honey edition this week along with multiple journaling cards and accents from Finding Nana!  My love for all of Leena’s goodies did not diminish one bit while I was on hiatus.

Chris and I started taking guitar lessons together this week.  This has been something we have talked about doing since we first got married in 1997.  Better late than never!  I also put a picture of the fire from our back deck.  It was so eery to see all that smoke and the flames that close to our house.

Last Thursday we made arrangements to go see my friend, Heather in Flagstaff on her way through town.  We decided to stop at a drive-thru wildlife park, Bearizona, on our way up.  You can read all about our visit HERE.

Like I mentioned above, all the little accent pieces (smile, the memo circle, the remember tag, and 3 of the journal cards) came from Finding Nana’s shop.  I have all 3 sets of labels (Take Note, Daily Memory, and On the Road Labels).

I took quite a few pictures at Bearizona, so I included a flip-up protector in order to add the additional pictures.  This was definitely a picture heavy week with all we had going on and I had already scaled back on the dozens of pictures I took.

Well there you have it!  It felt so great to be back in my craft space, printing out pictures, journaling about our week, and telling our story!

Project Life: Week 12

Man, the year is just flying.  I’m happy to be here sharing week 12 today.  This week I decided to go with simple.  Some weeks I’m super excited to jazz up my pages, bust out my sewing machine, & enlarge pictures.  This was NOT that kind of week. It was kind of a low key week coming off our Disney high!  Chris and I totally changed our eating habits this week.  We had given up fast food several weeks ago, but this week we cut out all refined sugars & flours.  We are slowly changing the girls’ diets as well.  Already this week they ate WAY more fruits & vegetables.  So this week I incorporated several food packagings and pictures of our food.  Below is how the layout looks in my album.

Here is a shot of the left page.

Again I added the picture from the movie I saw along with the ticket stub.  I continue to love using paperclips and Martha Stewart labels.  In the layout above I included Skylar’s report card that came home along with a note from her teacher telling me that she wanted to stay after school Thursday for the talent show.  The post-it note with the #4 on it was her try-out number that was assigned when she arrived at the try-outs.  It was a really neat experience and I wanted to keep these little tidbits that tell the story.  The “Document Life” card is from this set that I have used in past weeks.  I added the office tag with a flower & some word art to it as well.

Here is the right page.

And a couple of close-up shots.

When Chris came home for lunch today I told him my pages for the week were done, but that I kept them pretty simple.  As he looked through them he said “I love these pages!  It perfectly captures our week!”  And ladies and gentlemen….THAT is why I do project life!  I do it for my family.  I don’t want to stress about having the “perfect pages” or having the “hottest product” on my layouts.  I do it because it tells our story!  My advice to you? Don’t stress about how your pages compare to anyone else’s.  Don’t fret if you don’t sew on your pages.  And certainly don’t worry if you don’t have 100 rolls of washi tape.  The important thing is to TELL YOUR STORY!

I am linking up as always to The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama.   Head over and check out some really great project life inspiration.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
