Hey everyone, I'm back today to share some Project Life posts that I've had done for a little while. I've taken a little break from my Project + December pages because I've just been enjoying some family time. The girls have another week off and we've really been enjoying just sitting around chatting, putting together puzzles, practicing some archery skills, watching movies, etc. Having teenagers that actually like to hang out with their parents is so cool....so I'd be crazy to sit in my craft room when I can be with my reds.
I'll be sharing lots to ring in the new year...as soon as we get through a New Year's Eve party with 11 kids...+ another kid that kind of invited himself. How could we say no? Now we have snow forecasted for tomorrow night so I'm not sure how this will all pan out.
As I've been editing some older Project Life layouts, I've been able to reflect a lot about my weekly spreads. What I really loved, what I'd like to change, my thoughts on using kit items vs. creating my own stash of PL items, photographs, organization, etc. I'll be composing a new post to kick off my Project Life 2013 soon. Plus I decided to select a One Little Word so I'll be sharing a post on that too.
Okay, here we go with Week 38 of my Project Life for 2012. This is a 2 page spread with inserts which I'll show in a little bit. Here's the 2 page spread. I believe I used items mostly from a scrapbooking kit, challenging myself to use a limited amount of products.
shit happens. And this week it happened about THREE times with Mr. Charles. He turned 1 this week and we couldn't be happier that we added Charlie to our family. But the swimming in the shitty pond for the third time about made me insane. He'd run back to the house with a "look at me, mama!" look on his face, so happy that he got to take a swim with the cows in the ponds that were drying up and all mucky and gross.
This insert was made with a trimmed down 12 x 12 page protector that had (4) 6 x 6 inserts. I left about an inch of space on the right to add some patterned paper and a tab. This helps to create a visual break from the insert & the pages beneath.
