I'm determined to wrap up this year on time which means sharing here might be a little combined.

Weeks of : October 28 - November 17.
What happened these weeks? This is the first half of November! I fell behind on my album for the whole month of November and spent this past week catching up. Highlights include Halloween, the Queen Bee Market, a random section of Ellerie photos and the Sunday I documented.
Anything special in the spread? You'll notice NO 3x4 photos. My printer has been acting up and getting it to print anything is a battle these days (which is why I have to really gear up to work on this album). I took what I could get and worked with just 4x6 photos and then fancied things up with the vast array of 3x4 cards I have floating around here. I purchased a new printer this week and after I have time to try things out, I'll share how it goes. :)
Techniques this week : I used this blog post journaling prompt with some 3x4 cards and my girl & guy stamps. Simple way to share what was happening with us this week.
The trouble with waiting awhile to update is I get a little confused about what went on and what photos are relevant. But 5 years from now (or even 5 months from now) I don't think it will matter too much. I wanted a bit of journaling for week 45, so I used one of the Sunshine kit journaling cards and listed 10 random details from the week (based mostly on the photos and what my planner said happened).
Overall thoughts : Still really enjoying the "color coding" of spreads. REALLY hoping to finish this year strong and continue this project (though with a slightly different focus) in 2014. I am still thinking about how I want to tackle this project next year.
Supplies used : Seafoam core kit, Midnight core kit, Sunshine Core kit, Studio Calico project life kit, Kelly Purkey (letter stickers, stickers, journaling cards), Dear Lizzy wooden #3 embellishment, Meredith Carty (3x4 card), Paislee Press calendar card, Elise Joy stamps, Scrapbook and More flair badge.
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.
