Project Life Tuesday - Week 13

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!

Week 13 - I combined the Jade kit with a couple elements from the digital Honey Kit and just a dash of Seafoam.  Sounds like a recipe.

For the tile card, I used a card from the Jade kit and added some letter stickers and a strip of washi tape.

I love how the collage in the bottom right corner turned out.  It really shows a lot of my favorite moments from a crazy cool playdate!  The grey grid 3x3 card is the only element from the Seafoam kit that I used in this particular week.

And jumping over to the right hand page:

On this page I used the old split a 4x6 photo in half across two spots trick and it worked out nicely!  I just had too many cute shots of Thomas with his crayons not to include them all!

And then there was this little moment.  Too cute not to document.

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

Did anyone score an autographed Core Kit at Hobby Lobby this weekend?  If so....I'm super-jealous!
