This little batch was FUN … mostly in that without Project Life I probably would never have recorded some of these things – like a visit to the emergency room. But I did. and I’m so glad I did!
Here is my Project Life spreads from the weeks after Memorial day – May 28 to June 10 …. My weeks run Monday to Sunday – which I love, because they keep the weekends together in a chunk. So the images are *roughly* arranged from Monday on the left to Sunday on the right.
(if you’d like to see the images larger, you should be able to click through to view them on Flickr)
Week 9 : May 28 – June 3
This week included quite a few guests at our house on Monday (Memorial Day)… as well as my releasing my Summer journaling resource.
I did make a conscious effort to include more *stuff* in these 2 spreads. The bit of Sunset Magazine below, for example.
Week 10: June 4 – June 10
This week was supposed to be low-key and boring …. but it did NOT turn out that way! I wasn’t planning on doing an insert this week, but then drama happened.
Without the insert…
(again, a little more *stuff* including Andrew’s hospital ID bracelet)
You can see on the bottom row, I included a classic polaroid photo. I *just* got a vintage polaroid camera and bought some film (links below)…. This pic of Andrew is the first one I’ve taken with that camera… and it’s just *slightly* too big for the pocket.
But I’m OK with it.
You’ll notice this is also the week we got our kittens! I *may* have done an insert about the kittens if I hadn’t included an insert about Andrew’s emergency room visit.
Full spread with the insert:
Notice the little tab that says Tuesday coming out of the insert
Front of the 6×12 insert:
I made 3 4×6 photo-collages and adhered them to a 6×12 sheet of cardstock
These are all iPhoto images (as I *obviously* was not planning on doing this and so didn’t have my big camera)
The back side of the insert. Again, 3 4×6 photos on a 6×12 sheet of cardstock
I actually did use 2 separate sheets of cardstock, and adhered the bottom third or so together to form a pocket.
Then I printed out the journaling from this blog post about Andrew’s visit to the emergency room, stapled the 5 sheets together, glued the little tab to the stapled corner, folded it in thirds and stuck it in the pocket.
That definitely is the fattest part of my book so far!
Still loving Project Life …. I’m finding it not that difficult to stay up-to-date as long as I stay on top of editing and ordering the photos.
