Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Thirty-Five.
Two general maintenance things I did this week:
- I ordered another 12×12 We Are Memory Keepers album today to round out the year. I’m going with three total – four months in each album. I still need to do something for the first and last pages of my albums (except the first page of my first album for 2012 – you can see that intro page here). Adding that to my list.
- I added in my September monthly divider and I will move that over to the new album when it arrives.
I can’t believe we are entering fall.. Crazy, just crazy how fast it goes by.
This past week I’ve been thinking a bit about how to document my new relationship within this album.
It’s what’s real right now (and I’m really happy about it). I want to include stories about it without saying too little or too much.
This album, this project, is about me and it’s about my kids. The stories are about what’s happening to each of us in our lives right now, told through my personal lens and voice. I’m trying not to over think it – adding stories about the kids and stories about me and stories that include all of us – much of it dictated by the photos I have available.
As with everything else in life it’s a journey.
Open heart. Length and width. Up. You get the idea.
Here’s a closer look at Week Thirty-Five:
The font I use a lot on my photos is Sentinel.
While I was away for the weekend the kids were at Beach Camp with Grandma and Grandpa and they sent me this email along with scans of notes written by Simon and Anna. I liked keeping the email portion as it added context to the letters.
I spent the long holiday weekend with old and new friends at Hood Canal.
Amazing people, awesome weather, super good time.
This page ended up being all photos so I decided to add some Bella Blvd Yellow Chevron Designer Tape to a Hello Days Story Cards Grey to create a flip up card. The story card ends up outside the page protector and I’m fine with that.
Here’s a closer look at that:
I’m using a Slick Writer to add text to my photos.
Love adding these small word & phrase embellishments and popping them up with foam dots. I especially liked adding them right above the text I added to the photos in Photoshop before printing.
Repetition is a good thing.
