Project Life Tuesday - Week 18

The Mom CreativeHello 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!

I got a little carried away taking photos of the boys this week so I had to throw in a Design G page protector.

Left Page:

I finally got to upgrade my printer to a wireless all-in-one, so I had to take it for a test drive by scanning this photo I had on my desk of my friend Marissa and me from our freshman year of college at UW-Madison, circa 2001.  That printer spit out a print that looked even better than the original!

I got a box of books and flash cards to start helping Isaiah learn some sight words and he's been really focused on trying to learn them.  I think it's going to prove to take a good deal of patience on my part, but he's pretty excited.  He's doing well with the word "jump."

Design G:

We were just hanging out in the living room and Thomas was just looking so scrumptious that I just had to grab the camera.  He ended up getting the entire front side all to himself.

In the same sitting, I followed the Bigs around to be sure they also got their due. 

Right Page:

I had a little fun with this one.  :)

I used a Cathy Z template to include 3 photos from our visit to the doctor for Thomas' checkup along with the QR code for a video I took of him.  If you need a good laugh, scan it.  It's really cute. 

I love these two black & white photos of Thomas.  They make me happy.  And look at my big boy.  Just loungin'.

I busted out one of the flip pockets I bought a while back so I could include three photos of the boys in the bathtub.  I added the text in Photoshop and then slapped on an arrow from the Core Kit.

And when you flip it up:

I love this project so much.  It's so funny watching Isaiah flip through the pages and say "And this is me and this is Thomas and Thomas and Micah playing and me eating my supper and Daddy and this is you and this is your feet and these are your stars and this is my lightsaber and LET ME TURN THE PAGE ALL BY MYSELF!!!"

It's all worth it, folks.
