It's week thirty-three and I love this project.

Week of : August 12 - August 18.
What happened this week? We were home. Paul worked. I worked. Paul's mom and sister came to visit for a few days. Per usual, I didn't get a lot of photos during that time. It's odd, when I have people here, I tend to not take photos. I am so much more likely to have my camera out when it's just me or just us. When we have visitors I am more in the moment.
Anything special in the spread? Paul and I were able to have a "date night" since Stephanie and Kristen could watch Ellerie. I didn't get a photo of us from the date night. But we had our watch batteries replaced before we went to dinner so I took a photo of the watches and added the "story" right to that photo.
Techniques this week : Since I was low on photos I decided to blow up this one that I love of Paul and Ellerie. It was taken with my iPhone and in PSE I converted it to black and white. iPhone photos generally are not clear enough to enlarge, but when they are in black and white it's harder to tell. :) There is a video here that talks about how I print 12x12 photos at home in pieces.
Overall thoughts : Nothing that hasn't been said.
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 3 to 3.
Tools used : Design A pocket pages, Fiskars corner rounder, Zig Millenium pen, Rotatrim paper trimmer, Office Depot date stamp, staz-on ink. All photos were printed at home on my HP Photosmart 2575 printer on Office Depot semi-gloss photo paper.Project Life is a memory-keeping system created by Becky Higgins. I use photos, text and stuff to document our life weekly. You can see all the posts from 2012 here and 2013 here. Do you have a question about how I am tackling this project (including anything about the photos)? Check here.
