Welcome to Project Life | Week Twenty-Three.
Twenty-three weeks of documentation: photos and words and the stuff of life.
I’m into my second album for 2011 now (have been for the last few weeks). Back in the beginning of the year I decided to use We Are Memory Keeper’s albums for this project – mainly because I’m not huge fan of patterned album covers. Besides the fact that there’s really no way I could fit a year into one album with all the additional inserts I’ve been including, I like that the pages have room to breathe by splitting it up into two albums.
The bottom journaling card is from my Awakening 4×6 Overlay set. Most of the journaling about Anna’s new bed came from the Around Here post last week and I added a bit more telling what happened the rest of the week.
The first insert this week is an American Crafts 6×12 divided page protector. I cut off the top to make it fit just four photos vs. six – I like that it adds another height level to the mix.
I also included one 8.5×11 We Are Memory Keepers page protector to hold a map and a handout from the school about the field trip. Simon had that map in his hands the whole drive over to the coast.
Summer seems to finally be just about here. We had our first sunny day, bought our first round of strawberries from a local farm, went swimming outside on both Saturday and Sunday, and ate outside on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
On Sunday night while we were having dinner I went around the table and asked everyone to tell me their favorite memory from the weekend – I jotted down their responses on one of the journaling cards.
