Project Life | Week Ten

Welcome to Project Life | Week Ten.

One of the things I wanted to show this week was what my week looks like in-progress. I took this shot today before I brought the album upstairs to print a few more photos and crop/figure out what to do with the papers I had laid on top.

Some weeks it looks like this and some weeks I crop as I go (vs. waiting to crop at the end of the week). Since I was sick this past weekend I just decided to wait and do it all at once.

Not everything I set aside goes in to the album. Not all the instax photos make it in. Most of the papers are cropped or recycled. I don't take a lot of time choosing. I grab, crop and stick it in the album.

Here's what it ended up looking like for Week Ten (remember you can always click on an image to view larger):

The first page:

I flew to San Francisco for the day last week to visit Shutterfly (I've got a couple new photo books coming out) so I included my ticket here.

My 8.5x11 insert this week includes a painting from Anna on the front.

The back includes super cute invitations to my neice's second birthday that my sister sent.

My second page is mostly about our adventure to the art museum.

This week I used a couple cute cut-out elements from Elles Studio. Loving the whole Handmade Layers line.

As I was finishing up today, while Anna was napping and I was finally feeling a bit better, I was thinking that one of the things I'm thankful for is that this is a year-long album. Some weeks will be chock-full and others more sparse - a wonderful real-life look at our lives. Some weeks might have more words and others less. Some weeks will have more stuff and others less. Some weeks will have more photos and others less.

I think it's a good reminder that there's not right or wrong way for it to come together. I love it.
