Project Life Tuesday - Week 32

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 the perfect system for the "practical scrapbooker."  Some weeks might have more photos than others, some weeks will be missing days, but the goal remains a simple one: 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!

Another week in the books!  With any luck, I'll be able to get less than a month behind soon.  :)
 
Week 32: August 5 - 11
 
 
No inserts this week, but I really like how the collages and little embellishments added to the overall look this week.  I think it looks so fun!

So much cool stuff on this page!

The boys insisted on making their own lunch, which made for the perfect photo for Project Life!  In the lower right corner is a collage I made with Picasa of some favorite photos from the double birthday party for me and my sister in law.


Now that I've reached my goal weight, I was able to give myself the Mega Splurge reward I had been planning on since January....my first pair of designer jeans.  It gave me heartburn just to think about blowing that kind of money on a pair of pants, but it really made this journey something special to see how teeny those babies made my butt look!



My son is Rambo.

 
These moments where Micah is extra-cuddly are so special to me.
 
There we go!  Week 32.  We'll see if I can make some more progress soon!

  1. Great use of thickers, and I love the font on the photo on the top of the first page (love how you put it over the other door of the slider).

  6. Doesn't look like you did! What I said was:

    AHHHHHHH!! THOSE JEANS!! You look amazing in them! Worth every penny, right? :) I'm still so happy for you Sarah!

    Your PL books are just beautiful! I'm so behind and feeling a bit frustrated about it. Are you doing family books that you will always keep with you? Or individual books for each kid? I think my problem is trying to keep up with books for each kid. But I want them to each have their own scrapbooks to take with them when they move out someday. Am I crazy? :)

    (Clarification: I know I'm crazy, but am I crazy to be doing individual scrapbooks?)

  7. Erin,

    Hmmm...no I did not get your first comment. Bummer!! I am really having a hard time with comments lately. Did you see that I broke the blog a while back and LOST ALL MY COMMENTS???!!!! I cried, my dear. Cried.

    I am madly in love with my Hudsons. I still need to go get them tailored as they are too long, but I'm hesitant to go do it because I have to make sure I get someone who knows what the heck they're doing because I don't want them to mess up my expensive jeans!! I swear, if my house were on fire, I would probably go back for my scrapbooks and my Hudsons.

    Project Life. Ah, Project Life. I do love it so so so much, but life got so freaking crazy over the last couple months with the sale of our old home and moving to the new one and my book has suffered. I am over a month behind, but I swear I will get caught up again. I do one book for pretty much everything with weekly approach. I have three boys, so I'm not as focused on having individual books for each of them to have someday. I figure their wives will raid my scrapbooks when I die and divide them up as they see fit. :) Plus, I just don't have the time or budget to commit to doing a separate book for each kiddo.

    Oh, and I just used some birthday money to buy a pair of Silvers. You've created a monster. :)

  8. Ha ha... but a happy monster, right!? :) I warned you -it's a dangerous road I've lead you down!

    I think you're smart to just do one book for everyone. I will NEVER be caught up with the system I've got going. I think your books are beautiful Sarah! I bet your boys love looking through them.
