Project Life Tuesday - Week Six

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!

By the way, Happy Valentine's Day!

This was the second week that my husband was away on a business trip to China, so I organized my Project Life layout a bit differently than usual.  I used a Design D insert in the middle of my layout and also threw in a 8.5x11 insert.  Check it out!

This is the Design A facing the Design D.  The left side has a Week in Review journaling card and focuses on the first half of our week here at home.

I used the day of the week stamps and a bi-fold card included in the Core Kit to make the highlights card on the bottom left.

The front side of the Design D insert focuses on the Pinterest projects we tackled this week.

Here's the next couple pages, the back side of the Design D and the 8.5x11 that sits on top of the second Design A.

The flip side of the Design D was split between a feature on what Thomas is up to at the age of 5 months and a couple little snippets about our trip to Target on Friday. 

I just printed two 3x4 photos on a 4x6 canvas for each of those vertical spots at the top.  I like how it ended up looking like a bunch of horizontal photos all broken up.  The accent card from the Core Kit acts as a separation between the Thomas stuff and the Target photos.

On the opposite side is a print out of the news story from CNN.com about Whitney Houston's death.  Evan thought it was a bit silly of me to include it, but he wasn't an adolescent girl in the mid-nineties so what does he know.

And finally, the last page.  This is the page where I included all the China photos Evan sent me from this week along with the stub from his boarding pass for the flight home. 

Whew!  Another pretty big week in the world of Project Life!  If this keeps up, I'm going to have to get another album for the second half of the year!  I really liked using Design D in this week's spread.  It was neat to be able to include some big vertical photos and those spots also provide the opportunity to include two small horizontals.  Very versatile! 

Have a wonderful week!
