Project Life Tuesday - Week Seven

The Mom Creative

Hello and welcome to Project Life Tuesday! This is my third year of doing Project Life and I have found it to be so beneficial to have this post planned every Tuesday because then I have a standing deadline to get my photos done!  I'm doing things a little different this year and instead of the Photo a Day approach I've done for the last 2 years, I am approaching this year on more of a Layout Per Week basis.  This means that some weeks might have more photos than others, some weeks will be missing days, but the goal remains the same: To provide a glimpse of our life and preserve it. 

If you're taking on Project Life this year, good for you!  I am so happy I decided to accept the challenge back in 2010!  Welcome aboard and be sure to enjoy.  This isn't meant to be stressful.  It's a wonderful way to simplify scrapbooking and memory keeping.  If you're looking for inspiration on what others are doing with their Project Life, you can check out my board on Pinterest and be sure to link up on The Mom Creative!

This week's layout only has one insert in additional to the two standard Design A pages, a 6x12 page protector.

I added a wooden heart embellishment to the date card in the upper left corner of the left page, just to make it a little more festive for Valentine's Day. The rest of the page is about Isaiah's valentine's for preschool, Thomas' yucky face when trying to eat food, and the gorgeous pink roses Evan gave me for Valentine's Day.

I also included the card from Evan's flowers.

In the 6x12 page protector, I included Isaiah's valentine as well as a few favorites from the ones he received.

And then the other side has the bag that held all his goodies (with more valentines inside!) and the glow stick valentine from his teachers.

And here we have the right page.

In the lower right corner, I used an Instagram photo and some digital paper from the Cobalt collection to make up a neat 4x6 photo about finally getting my hair cut on Saturday!

Here are a few more photos I highlighted this week.

Thomas has really been struggling to eat solid foods so far! I tend to get more of this yucky face than anything else!

Evan was so tired when he came home from work that he fell asleep with Isaiah and Thomas on his lap! I swear, he didn't budge from that spot all night.

Since the Sucker Valentine got so popular on Pinterest, I decided to do this variation on the idea for Isaiah - the Hug Valentine!

Look at that gorgeous baby girl. I got to snuggle this newborn beauty on Thursday night when I visited her and her mama in the hospital. She had that awesome "new baby smell!"

Thanks so much for checking out my stuff this week!  Next week I'll be guest posting on The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday!  I'm so excited!
