Ok, so I'm not so good at the blog thing just yet. Life gets so busy and I'm usually doing all I can just to keep afloat. I have no idea what keeps me so busy most days, I always feel like my life is pretty darn boring! I wish I was better at this, I'm actually working hard to be better at this. Just still not feeling like I have a lot to say that others want to read about. I should use this as my online journal of sorts, maybe that would make it easier. Maybe if I can begin to think of it like that, it will help. Hmmmm..... Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Anyway, since part of the reason I started this blog was to share my Project Life pages (and as you can probably guess, I'm a wee bit behind in that area!) I guess I'll try to catch you up. I'm finally "caught up", meaning I'm current with the week we are in. Today my goal is to work on last week so I will be ready for the coming week, which officially started yesterday. This will be a lengthy catch up post as I have several weeks to post so bear with me. Here goes:
Benjamin was sick this week so I included a photo of the meds we were giving him to help him feel better and get some rest. Also got an Instax photo of him snuggling with Mark. He is still such a love bug when he's sick.
I included some receipts from the week as well as a screen shot from the Nike+ app that records our runs.
This is week 4 full spread. I'm still enjoying using both the Clementine and Cobalt kits.
Used one of the bigger cards for the first time today and attached a small Instax photo to go with it. It's fun to change things up a little bit. I've also been enjoying using Ali Edwards' digital elements on my pages.
Week 6 full spread.
Week 7 full spread.
The family shot of us in the middle there is a new favorite. And I just love the photo of Zachery and Emma dancing it up on the bottom. They had such a good time together and it was great to see how good Zachery was with his little cousin!
I added an insert to hold the brochure of my new car. It worked out that I also had a gas receipt from the last gas purchase I made in my old Dodge Grand Caravan, too.
Full spread for week 8 with both inserts showing.
Week 9 full spread above with the insert with the program from the musical included as an insert. This week also included 2 inserts as I also added several photos taken during the performance.
Up close of the photo insert and part of the final page for the week, shown fully in photo below.
Week 10 full spread.
I came across some more awesome Project Life digital elements via Pinterest this week and enjoyed using them for my album. So much inspiration out there!
I duplicated a look from Ali Edwards week 10 page. I love how she took apart one of her digital elements and added text in between. I had taken a perfect picture to include this same idea and I love how it came out!
Week 11 full spread.
Finally! All updated on my Project Life pages now!! What a relief. Now I just need to make it a priority to keep up with this part of my goal. Overall I'm just really happy to be participating in this project created by Becky Higgins.
I'm also looking forward to trying to participate in Ali's A Week In The Life next month as well. It will be fun to try it. I'm one of those people she mentions who actually thinks my life is rather boring on a day to day basis, especially with my work schedule but I'm going to give it a try and hopefully have something to look back on in later years and enjoy.
