The past couple of weeks have been unusually busy and my layouts have been extremely simple. Photos + pictures and minimal embellishments. But Project Life has enabled me to keep things as simple as possible without guilt. My stories have been captured and told. The weeks that I have used more embellishments and stitching were great, but I have found my creative outlet completely filled with learning how to quilt.
Design A. Highlight of our week was spending a lot of time on the baseball fields for Ben. Our back wall is shared with a local elementary school, so we simply jump the fence and we are on the field. This is our favorite time of year – perfect weather, playground, baseball, and Samantha loves the snack bar!
Design D. I take a lot of vertical pictures. I decided to put one picture of each of the kids in the page protector. I then just added journaling about some of their characteristics, activities, and their favorites. The kids loved this page the most out of all the pages I’ve done. I’m thinking about doing a page like this every 2-3 months to capture their current likes, dislikes, and activities as things change so quickly.
I have used the Clementine edition of Project Life since the start, but this week I used some of the Cobalt journaling cards. I used 2 of the foldable cards to journal about Ben pitching a no hitter and about making cake balls for Jeff’s urologist. What better gift for a urologist than cake balls, right? I know. I have a strange sense of humor friends.
My only insert this week is the letter that I wrote to the kids but I decided to keep it private this week.
