Week #11. Play tape recorder here… I love this project. I love this project. I love this project.
I know I say this every week, but I really do.
Life was super busy this week and I wasn’t able to start this layout until after dinner this evening, so please pardon the artificial light.
Week #11 Page 1 (Design A)
The letter stickers are from Studio Calico that you can find here.
I love using the journaling cards straight out of my journals from Marta. I also printed out an extra 4 x 6 horizontal photo but decided to cut it in half and put it across 2 of the pockets. Simple. I loved this picture. This is something I see at least 3 days a week where Jeff carries Sam across the monkey bars next to the swimming pool. This is what I love about Project Life – it captures the daily rituals that I wouldn’t have captured in my former, traditional scrapbooking.
I found myself really trying to get more “story” pictures this week. I read one of Ali’s Creative Lifts newsletters and was encouraged to focus on pictures getting more of the background and action (less posed). I was finding myself saying, “Sam look at me. Smile, Sam!” Argh. Now I am trying to ask a lot less often, but it is a hard habit to break. Trying to find that happy balance in my photography while continuing to learn. Oh, I have so much more to learn.
We were excited to have a surprise 2 day visit with my mom. One night over spaghetti, she was laughing at our family questions that we ask the kids and their funny answers. It was fun to have her be a part of this family tradition.
Video question of Week #11 was: If you could have one superhero power, what would it be?
Rebecca (13 y/o)- “Invisibility. I would spy on people.”
Ben (10 y/0)- “Flying. I would be an amazing superhero.”
Emily (8 y/o)- “Fashion Superpowers. I would be able to see what I want to wear, blink, and automatically be in that outfit. And if I could have a second power, I would be able to turn back time and see what I was like when I was little.”
Sam (2 y/o)- “I wanna go to Disneyland.”
I plan on burning it to a CD and include the written answers on the back. I am currently seeking different options involving QR codes to include videos in my albums. I wrote a post about QR codes and included a free printable of 100 Family conversation prompts which are fun to include in your albums. You can find that here.
