Project Life 2013: Week One

Week one finally in the books. I used a combination of the Studio Calico Project Life kit and the SeaFoam core kit. Loving the teal/blue, kraft, gray, white color combination…

I decided to keep a Sunday-Satruday layout, to keep this year consistent with last. I like that it begins where last year’s Project Life ended, even though that meant having two days of December in this album…

Right side with insert. 2012 was the year of the Instagram for me. I love that so much of our day-to-day story was captured:

New year, new shoes…new stories to be told:

The deets: if you have kids and have as much “fun” taking them shoe shopping as I once did…trace their feet, cut, and take the cut outs shoe shopping. It’s life changing. And blissful. And you get fun remarks from the peeps in the shoe department. On this particular occasion, I offered to throw myself on the floor, scream, whine, and cry to make it an authentic experience. My humor was not appreciated. I immediately assumed the young guy didn’t have any children…

I love looking at this collage of 2012 pictures. It’s amazing how quickly the boys are growing and how far they’ve come. Jake’s growth is extraordinary: from a binky loving two-year old to super spicy three year…in the blink of an eye.

I have learned from last year’s failed attempt at separate big projects. They don’t get done. I get frustrated. This year, I will incorporate the “One Little Word” idea into my overall project life…

    Great idea to include your OLW into Project Life 🙂 Love the idea of tracing feet to take to the store instead of taking the kids. Of course my kids would NEVER let me pick their shoes now as they are 11 and 14 – lol!!

    Beautiful layouts! I love your best of 2012 insert!
    Thanks for the tip on shoe shopping…..My youngest silently protests by scrunching his toes up while I’m trying to try them on.
