Project Life Tuesday - Week Nine

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.  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!

After such a crazy week last week, I kept it pretty simple this time around.  Here we go:

(Click on any photo to make it bigger.) 

Left Page:  I included three photos of my big boys at play, with trains, blocks, and with the Leap Pad.  I wanted to remind myself to encourage this as much as possible.  On the last journal card, I used a Tiny Template from Cathy Z to talk about the last bag of breastmilk that's been sitting in my freezer for weeks.  The little photo shoot with Thomas and Brian yielded way more good shots than I thought, so I had to make a collage to include them all!

I picked up a pack of Smash tags and slapped one of them on the photo of the boys with the Leap Pad.  I like how it adds just a little something unexpected to the photo.

Right Page: This page has Thomas' six month photos, a shot of my groceries, a picture of me in November compared to now after I've lost my first 30 pounds, and finally a photo of Thomas sleeping.

I loved this little exchange with Isaiah.  I wrote it down as soon as I could to make sure I didn't forget it.  Why he wanted to leave the Kleenex on the toilet for me, I have no idea. 

Love these new stickers from Jillybean Soup!

Thanks for stopping in to check out my layouts today!  Here are a few of the photos I featured this week, for the sake of family and friends looking for some cute kid pictures.  Have a great week!

See you next week!
