Project Life 2013: Weeks Thirteen and FourteenPosted: April 27, 2013 Filed under: Project Life 8 Comments
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…
We 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…
I 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:
Silly girls day out, we had so much fun:
Tyson 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:
I 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…
I challenged myself to use as much of the Studio Calico kit as possible this month…it was a lot harder than I expected:
The 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:
I 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.
UPCOMING WEEKS: 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.
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?
I am so happy to have helped inspire you with my project life…I have been a reader quite a while. 🙂 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. 😉
Fabulous pages, what a record of your lives xx
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!
Love all the tabs and titles. Great photos too!
Such great pages! LOVE that little polka dot envelope and the stitching, too! 🙂
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.
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.
