Project Life, Week Four
OBSERVATIONS: Another week in the life has been documented via Project Life. Last week, I really didn't take a ton of photos so I ended up using a few shots from the same shoot. I say that's perfectly okay for Project Life. Just as using cell phone photos works perfectly well, so do using similar shots from a series. This project has to be flexible, and the great news is… it totally is!
I did go a bit card crazy this week, but I'm digging my cards and even having fun making some custom ones from other little bits and pieces.
Here are the pages for the week:
Four photos (the one of me, and three three of Aidan on the second page) all came from the same 5 minutes period of time. But I have to say, she's so stinkin' cute, it's hard sometimes to narrow down the shots. This week, however, I wanted to remember those adorable braids and the bleached out tips.
I've got a few new sets of papers and other goodies being released on Friday, including the gray polka dot paper, the blue striped paper and the little grid labels you see above, and below.
The cool thing is, there is really no end to what you can make with a few key digital products! (Want to learn how to make your own simple cards? Watch this video.)
And my favorite story of the week is below on the left hand card.
Aidan's quote gave me the warm fuzzies, and I immediately jotted it down in my Day 1 app, so I wouldn't forget her words. She is such a huge Harry Potter fan. She's said more than once it's contributed hugely to the person she is becoming. I love that. (To watch a video on how to add text to a predesigned journal card, click here.)
Here is the weekly recap:
I find that my weekly recaps are much more broadly stroked, and that my journaling cards elaborate and fill in the blanks. Sometimes, they don't mirror each other at all; sometimes they do. I love the flexibility of having both.
And that is all I wrote for Week 4.
