As mentioned at the end of 2013, I am no longer completing my Project Life album on a weekly basis. I did that for two years. I enjoyed the process and I love my albums. This year I am taking a much more relaxed approach and playing more with this project. I don't have much of a plan other than to complete at least one (and sometimes many more) spread a month.
The big win is that I can never be "behind" on this album. I also like that I don't have to worry about having seven horizontal 4x6 photos each week and can group photos by subject instead of date. I love that I will be under no "weekly deadlines" and will be blogging just once a month about my album.

I love those photos and LOVE how they look in a grid like that.

The next spread is my Studio Calico creative team layout featuring the Hello, Hello kit for June.
I used a bunch of embellishments from the kit and some printables to create a mostly black, white and gold page featuring photos from our Sunday at home.
The opposite page is one of my favorites. That photo turned out even better in black and white and I love how it paired with that journaling card.
Seriously my fave.
I had just a few more photos that I wanted to include from the month and I stuck them into the backside of the full photo pocket page. I have NO ISSUES at all that there were more great photos from the month that didn't make it in. I am busy this year in a very good way. This album shows just a small snapshot of our lives and that is more than good enough for me.
