Project Life Week 3 // January 15-21

Week 3.

The left side:

  • N2 holding a friend's new little baby at church.
  • a meet up with some special friends!
  • the littlest girl doing her school
Why the flowers on the bottom right photo? Well, last week we had a super fun bloggy meet-up with our penpals-now-in-person-friends from Hope is the Word! Since Amy has chosen not to put her children's faces on her blog, I add a few well-placed flowers to hide her girls' very cute faces. : ) We had a great time with Amy and her munchkins. The girls hit it off immediately (as if there was any doubt about that) and Amy and I had no problem jumping right into conversation as well. The hour we had to chat sped by MUCH too quickly! I've so appreciated trading emails with Amy over the past several years and it was such a blessing to be able to talk face-to-face.

A little photo evidence of our mischievous boy fit into one of the journaling spots.

The right side:

  • N2 with her Awana leaders. Note to Erin - you made the Project Life album! : )
  • Pictures of what we have been reading this week.
  • a photo of the boy ... because he is pretty stinkin'cute. : )
  • The little girls with our neighbor.

The journaling card I used below for our "recently reading" page is a free download from Emilie Ahern. She's offering a free Project Life journaling card on her craft blog every Friday and she has some cute stuff. I went ahead and purchased her birthday set in anticipation of N2's birthday next week and can't wait to use them.

Photo collage created in Photoshop using templates from Paislee Press.

This is another Project Life printable from Emilie below. I love these simple lined cards.

PLwk3f

Boy journaling written on labels and stuck right on the side of the photo. I ran these labels through my printer so that they would have graph paper on them (a la this tutorial) and really like how they turned out.

That wraps up another week in our album. How are we almost at the end of January already? This month has flown by ... or so it seems to me. So thankful for this approach to scrapbooking that is helping me look at the little details of our days and capture bits and pieces to include and remember.

  1. Very cool that you had a meet-up with Amy! How fun!

    And the picture of the stuff in the potty just kills me. That little boy is going to keep you on your toes! :)

    1. Yes. Yes, he is (and already does!) I love it. : )

      Are you project life-ing again this year?

  2. Hey! I thought those flowers looked familiar! :-)

    I love this all, but I especially live the little photo collage on the upper right! Thanks for all the links, too! Some day I'll find time to investigate and use all these great resources!

    I've worked on last week's LO a bit, but I'm already feeling the time crunch since my weekends are occupied once again.

    1. I’ve been thinking about doing a post of some of the goodies I’ve found, but my time never materializes. There is cute stuff out there ... Way more than I need that’s for sure!
