If it truly takes 21 days to form a new habit, well, I guess I have formed one for Project Life 2012. (!!) I'm sure there will be weeks when I'll get behind but right now it feels fabulous to be keeping up with it each week. Could I tweak it more? Frou-frou & scrappy it up more? Well, sure. But for me keeping things fairly simple works best.
Here's the overall layout for Week 5.
This week I added a bullet point weekly review on the main card using the colored number stickers in the Clementine core kit.
Here's the left side.
I included a collage review of the #janphotoaday Instagram challenge in the bottom two 4x6 slots. I used scrapbook paper from my stash to add a bit of color and save my kit cards for other things.
The only life tidbit I saved this week was the cardboard wrapper from my latte. Some weeks will have more tidbits, some less and that's okay.
Here is the right side.
This week I used a 6x12 divided photo protector to include photos from our Lego building adventure at the library.
Here is the back side of that protector filled with photos from my dad's 71st birthday on Sunday.
I played with using vellum & stamps to add a bit of pizazz on top of the photos. I really like the way the vellum adds a simple yet classic touch.
And here is the right side without the insert.
This week turned out to have more photos than usual, and that makes me happy, but also limits the story a bit too. All of the 4x6 photos are from our fun weekend with good friends, I used address labels and one of the folded journaling cards to tell the story.
The top left photo shows all the kids piled up on the couch and on the floor watching Dolphin Tale. It gave the mamas a few minutes of calm while we chatted over coffee and cookies Friday night. It warms my heart to see all our kiddies together!
I trimmed a 4x6 photo to split across two journaling card slots (which I think is a fun (whimsical?) thing to do occasionally) to be able to include it without adding an adhesive flip-up protector (it's still so hard for me to leave out favorite photos).
I'm linking up with The Mom Creative again, be sure to pop over there for more layout inspiration.
