Project Life Tuesday - Week 10

The Mom CreativeWelcome to Project Life Tuesday!  Every week I share photos of a layout I've been working on, either in my family's weekly book or my son's baby book. 

I started using the Project Life system in 2010, so this will be my fourth full year!   

I am not a "fancy scrapbooker."  There are so many people out there doing some very impressive things with their Project Life albums that involve a combination of digital skills, pretty embellishments, and other fancy-pants techniques.  I'm not one of those.  I keep it pretty simple so that I know I can keep up and avoid becoming overwhelmed.  To me, it's more important to keep the memories than it is to make them look like they came out of a magazine.  I'm totally fine with it if my layouts feature more iPhone photos than DSLR shots and Instagram is my friend.

I do like to have fun with it though.  :)

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!

Here we go with Week 10!

This left page has some cute photos of my kids that just make me smile.  The comparison shot between last year and this year's weather however, makes me want to cry. 

I skipped taking photos of the front side of the Design B insert that I included because it was full of photos of my infant niece, Evalyn.  Out of concerns for privacy for My Prize and my sister, I chose not to throw it up here on the blog..

Here's the flip side of that Design B as well as the right side of the layout.

Isaiah drew me this wonderful picture of the battle of Jericho and I was totally floored when he explained every element of it to me.  It was too big to fit in a 4x6 photo pocket, so I scanned it and printed it as a photo along with all the rest.  It allowed me to add the little labels and arrows in Photoshop.  I love how it turned out!

How cute is my little peanut?  Love him!!

And here's the right page:

Another masterpiece from Isaiah, a little gem of My Prize, and my darling little Spidermen!

Look at my prize!!!  I put this 3x4 black and white image next to a filler card from the Seafoam kit that I added a little stamp flair to.

And who could resist including these two little Instagrams of real life in our house?  One kid sitting in his stubborn fit at the table and the other getting ready to be introduced to one of the best movies of all time. 

Thanks for stopping in!  See you next week for another round!
