It's week 40 and yes, I love this project.
I actually got a question about this the other week... do I really still LOVE putting together the spreads. The answer is yes and no. I LOVE tucking all the pieces into place. I love taking pictures. I love doing the embellishing and the journaling. I hate printing the photos - that's my least favorite part and biggest hold up every week. If I could snap my fingers and the photos would appear, I would be obsessed all over again. This means I am going to have to figure out a new photo printing method for 2014. Stay tuned.

Weeks of : September 30 - October 6.
What happened this week? We were home. Nothing special and not too many photos since I was working to get the eCourse out the door.
Anything special in the spread? Those two bottom photos were actually taken the following week. But since I decided to dedicate week 41 to our Catalina trip and I had so few photos I went with it.
Techniques this week : I have been using more 3x4 journaling and embellishment cards these weeks because I am so annoyed with printing photos. It's sort of a win/win because it's less printing AND I get to use up some of the fun cards in my stash.
Overall thoughts : It was not intentional that I had two photos of E in various animal bath towels, but they were both so great I had to use them.
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 5 to 2.
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.
