Project Life 2013: Weeks 31, 32, and 33

WEEK 31

Fun with the new Slate Core Kit. The bright colors make this kit so happy and fun. I think the cards are super versatile and love that many can be cut up/trimmed to be used as embellishments. Kept it super simple…

I forgot how much I love the colors of the Honey kit. I started with the simple letter stickers on the photos and went from there…

IMG_8256Big milestone for Jake this week was the focus/highlight: he learned how to ride his bike without the training wheels!!

IMG_8258Tyson repurposed the original Project Life packaging as portable Lego sorter/storage. Swoon.

When I started this week, I thought I had completely forgot to take pictures. I didn’t have any to work with. It turns out, I just hadn’t picked up weeks worth from Costco. Before I knew I had pictures, I had asked each boy to design/make his own layout. They LOVED it and the pieces they made are by my favorites of all time. I kept Ty’s layout intact as it tells the story of our week pretty well and plan to incorporate bits of Jake’s into other layouts. It is likely that I struggled with this week because it was the week of HUGE change in our house. The landscape of our forever changed: out with the toddler/car bed and in with TWO BIG BOY rooms. Ty got a new desk, his little room now resembles more of a dorm room than little boy room. Jake got the top bunk and a new dresser. They both love playing in their “big boy” rooms so much now and Jake is so proud of his new space:

    Found you on the Saturday linkup from simple as that. I’ve been wanting to connect with other Project Lifers.You may have convinced me to get the Honey Edition just now. I love the black and white photos and how you cropped one photo into segments and put them together. What a great idea! -Jessica L
