Project Life 2012: Week 3

Left side: this week was all about reflection. How impossibly quick five years can go by. While I had plenty of actual daily photos, I wanted to include some of my favorite baby pictures and illustrate the “now” and “then”…looking back years from now, the journey from one to five will mean more than forcing daily pictures into the project. I haven’t really stressed about making Project Life a daily album, in fact, I don’t think I have yet to make a “weekly” layout that focuses on a picture a day. I typically focus on the main events/themes/milestones of the week.

Right side. This is actually the third rendering of the right side. I didn’t like the way it was coming together. It looked way too busy for my liking. I took out a few of the photos I had placed in the journaling section and added a couple of “simpler” cards to tone it down. I don’t usually try to do a color theme but managed to stick with the green/blue/yellow…

Baby pictures. Now and then. Love that PL is all about making it what you want to be:

Had fun incorporating a little bit of MY story into PL this week:

Full week layout with additional inserts (mentioned in last week’s post):

Progress on week 4: a complete opposite sort of week, not photo heavy at all:

    I love the then & now stuff! I find myself seeing my middle daughter being the big sister to my youngest, just like my eldest was with my middle daughter (does that even make sense?) & love that I can put the comparisons in my album. Oh you have just inspired me for a layout….ok girls nap time!
