Project Life :: Spring Catch-Up
As school is winding down for us (we have somewhere between 15-20 days left!), it's time to catch up on Project Life. I have done a halfway decent job of staying on top of getting pictures printed at least. That's usually my project while the girls have music lessons once a week - during that hour and a half I try and clean photos off my phone and upload them to my computer and to Sam's if I have time. I can usually take care of that in about 30-45 minutes if I have kept up with it and don't have a ton to do at once. That always makes it SO much easier to catch-up if the photos are here and ready to go. Granted, last night I had a huge sorting party first trying to get my photos in some sort of chronological order and that took a while.
If you look at these layouts they are all over the place. Some pages are a hodgepodge of photos from a week (or maybe even a couple weeks) and some pages are devoted to a whole event. I have several soccer pages like that where my Dad came and took photos of kids and there were too many good ones to include so I included them all. (I spared posting all the soccer pages here). :) Lots of labels for journaling when just a quick note would suffice since some pages I was heavy on photos and light on room for journaling cards.

So much soccer cuteness.
N2 had her grandparent trip this spring with my folks and they enjoyed several days at the St. Louis Zoo. You'll see I used lots of this size page protector to get several events covered.
Elizabeth, you made the album. : ) I had the chance to meet my online friend Elizabeth a couple weeks ago. A former writer for Simple Scrapbooks, she is someone who's scrapping style I have long admired, and through a mutual appreciation of scrapbooking, photography, and raising three girls that love to read, we moved from blog reading to the occasional email to an in-person meet-up. Sometimes the internet is kinda amazing.
I'm still quite behind on this spring, but so thankful for how easy it is to get caught up and get memories in our albums.
