Week 13 and this spread might be my favorite so far.
(click to enlarge & the images above will be [somewhat] clearer)
Main thing this week is that I realized I do not spend a lot of time on this project. In fact, I thought about it and realized that prepping these posts about the weekly spread always feels like it takes longer than the actual spread. ;) I think it's because I really don't go over the top with embellishments and details. This is not a scrapbook page that stands alone. This is an album that comes together to share what our life looks like. And again, the whole is much greater than the sum of it's parts. It's going to take exactly how much time you allow it to take.
Added a full 12x12 page insert this week because MAN, I love that rock photo. I also knew I would have six dinner photos and I thought they would make a great back to the rocks. That insert is a Project Life Design C photo pocket page.
I filmed a video to share how I printed the large photo at home in pieces to make it fit in the 4x6 pockets. I say this in the video, but it bares repeating : it would be much, much easier to just have a 12x12 photo printed online and then cut it down into 6 4x6 photos. I highly recommend that unless you are familiar with your printer and prefer printing at home.
I didn't really have much to say about the rock photo (again it's in there just because I love it) but I added a little bit of context on a label and wrapped it around the bottom right photo.
I am happy I was able to share the weeks dinner's on the backside. Again - simple, simple. No text, just Project Life day of the week stickers on each of the photos.
Other than that - SO BASIC. My "currently" journaling from this post is on a 3x4 card. I saved a few of the plastic tags from the plants to embellish the photo. I took the small spread of photos of my haircut on my computer using Photo Booth. That photo of Paul is his new command photo.
And then the usuals on the second page. Arrow journaling, quote & lots of tea. The diagonal stripe card in the bottom pocket holds journaling that I blurred for the blog. That pattern is actually something I designed ages ago and had printed as a photo. Love the this project helps me use all the paper and stuff I've collected over the years.
Love. Bring on April and month four.
