Welcome to Project Life | Week Twenty-One
Each week when I sit down to write this post the first thing that I want to say is that I love this project.
No matter what – no matter if it didn’t feel like it came together as easy as the week before, or if I felt like I had too much or too little, or that I put it all together on Monday night before posting – no matter what, as I look back through the completed week when it’s time to write about it the first thought that comes to mind is how happy it makes me to be doing this project.
One of the things I tried to work on this week was immediately writing something down if it popped into my head as a story I wanted to record. I caught a couple cute things Anna’s been saying because I took action rather than thinking I’ll remember it later on in the week. I’m pretty sure if I would have waited until today they would have been lost because I don’t have a specific photo to go along with them. Photos are great for jogging memories, but not all stories I want to tell have a matching photo.
Here’s a look at week twenty-one:
If you’re a regular reader you probably already saw the post-it notes that I wrote about last week.
That metal number 4 was somehow floating around downstairs so I slipped it in the pocket. It might come out if I want to use it on another project.
One 6×12 American Crafts page protector insert this week (they are in stock at both Scrapbook.com and Two Peas). I found a stash of these while I was cleaning/unpacking/moving things around. It’s nice to be able to have this size on hand and not have to cut up a 12×12 or do any stitching.
Here’s the back of that insert. The top instax 210 photo with the journal block on the background looks like it’s floating in the 6×4 space – I stapled it in place so you get that peek- through effect. Tag on the back is from Bananafish Studio.
This week there was a lot of photos of Simon. In other weeks there have been more of Anna. That’s how it goes.
A COUPLE NOTES : We loved Kung Fu Panda 2. I thought it was awesome – animation, story, humor. The top right photo of Simon (in the image above) was taken in Rep Arne Robland’s office on Friday when Simon got to go to work with Dad. Rep Robland has a life-size Anakin Skywalker costume from The Phantom Menace (the one where Anakin does the big pod race). I wish I would have been there to see him put that helmet on his head.
