Project Life 2013: Weeks Thirteen and Fourteen


Had a lot of fun with this week in spite of the length of time it took me to actually complete it. Both the color scheme and content made me smile as I looked back on our Spring Break. Lots of laughter, memories made, and quality family time…

IMG_6988We had a super laid back Easter Sunday, just the four us. The boys had two egg hunts and spent most of the day playing with their Easter goodies. I then packed up the car and the boys and I headed up to the Lake…inside the road trip envelope, I plan to include receipts and funny things the boys said in the car. They were not allowed to complain about the music I had on rotation: over and over and over…

IMG_6990I ended up using most of the Instagram shots I’d put in the journal slots as actual photos this week. I didn’t have quite enough to fill up the entire insert page, so I just cut off the bottom third:

IMG_6993Silly girls day out, we had so much fun:

IMG_6995Tyson STILL talks bout this outing. I LOVE just how much the boys love their Auntie and Uncle. Having just returned from his Afghanistan deployment, we were all eating up the time with Uncle Dustin:

IMG_6996I couldn’t get enough of my adorable niece. The boys, however, were not so sure about “gwurls”…


Another insert heavy week as my brother and SIL were in town for a few days…

IMG_7002I challenged myself to use as much of the Studio Calico kit as possible this month…it was a lot harder than I expected:


IMG_7005The insert threw me. I had enough pictures but not enough journaling for six journal cards. I ended up browsing Pinterest and found the perfect solution. Love how she cut the insert page to just have the three journal slots isolated, so clever:

IMG_7007I am certain my husband would die if he knew that picture of Jake was included but I can’t get enough of it. I was laughing so hard, I got teary. His imagination, love of dress up, and crazy dress inspire me. I will be so so sad when he outgrows it.

IMG_7008UPCOMING WEEKS:ย I had a lot of fun incorporating bigger photos in the upcoming weeks. I LOOOOOOVE Tyson in his Little League uniform, there is nothing cuter. He was beyond excited to play catcher and I died with cuteness. I printed the photo as an 8 x 10 but didn’t want to just have it sit as an insert. I like the way it stands out in this particular week as baseball has become such a huge part of our weekly routine.

  1. Super cute, April! I need to cut down some inserts instead of always buying small ones. Do you use the part you cut off for anything?

  2. I am so happy to have helped inspire you with my project life…I have been a reader quite a while. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have tons of 3up 4×6 album refills…so I use them when I need fillers…and that day decided it would be easy to just cut off 3 inches from one side to make my own size inserts…no need to go buy more…great for 4×4 photos as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love the look of all these pages. They really have a nice flow to them. The photo of your little guy playing dress up is classic – it’s so great that you allow his imagination to run free!

  5. Jenny says:

    Love all the tabs and titles. Great photos too!

  6. kristina says:

    Such great pages! LOVE that little polka dot envelope and the stitching, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love your handwriting, it’s so neat and pretty. Love the yoga picture. I keep meaning to try that with my kids. They love stretching with us after we work out.

  8. I love the cut up insert – it really adds some extra interest when flipping through the album. I’ve been trying to use up some 8,5×11 page protectors for the same reason, for kid art or maybe (one day) an actual layout.
