Project Life 2015.....Week 3 with inserts

Hi friends.  Hope your week is off to a good start.  The February Gossamer Blue Kits are now up for sale + there is a big sale on some previous kits.  I'll be sharing my February projects on my blog this month and you can see all of them in the Gossamer Blue now.  

This is Week 2 of my 2015 Project Life.  I have a two page spread with inserts and I'm so pleased with how easily they came together.  I used the Life Pages Kit for all of my journaling cards and embellishments.  This is the two page spread shown with a 10 x 12 insert. 
Turning the page you see the back of the 10 x 12 insert (page protector from Project Life) and the front of an 8.5 x 11 horizontal insert.
Here's the two page spread by itself.  I love how the colors coordinated so well with this week's photos.
The left page. Lots of crafty work this week.
The right page.  Just a mix of photos from the week.
I loved this colorful plaid 4 x 6 card from the Life Pages Kit.  I used my watercolors to create a subtle green wash in the speech bubble.  A paper file tab and chipboard file tab were used to note the week #.
I'm loving white journaling cards with a design on them.  They freshen up a page lickety split.
Here a lot of my 3 x4 cards with hand journaling.  I loved the wood veneer pieces in the Life Pages Kit.  They're becoming a favorite.  I also watercolored that camera with the same green paint on my week number card.
This is my 8 x 10 insert and I love how it turned out.  The floral cards from the Life Pages Kit were made for this page, I think. They match my vintage bowls just perfectly.  
I added in some journaling cards, embellishments and stamps from Ali Edwards' Story Kits and Stamps for this insert.  The theme was Gathering this month so I chose to create this page from a blog post I wrote recently about a thrifting trip.
This large plastic word is  also from Ali's Gathering Story Kit. Brad is from Gossamer Blue kits.
The back side of the insert is about our pancake mornings.  The February GB kits are full of October Afternoon goodies and pancakes were a popular theme.  Perfect for my photos in this insert. 
The striped journaling card was from my stash.  The gray journaling card is from Ali's Gathering Kit.  I love that egg flair button and the fork sticker from October Afternoon.
This is a funny little drawing that Jordan did when she was five.  She found it and pointed out that she drew a little something special for Dad.  We never noticed it til just now.
I used embellishments from the February kits for journaling.  Surprise!!  I cut out a square in my page protector so the little flip up swimming trunks could reveal Dad's *ahem* details. That's my girl.
So so happy with how my 2015 pages are coming along.  I've kept things simple and easy but am able to add in just the right amount of embellishments.  I'm also catching up on 2014.  Just 7 more weeks to go.  I'll be sharing those pages soon too.  Thanks for stopping by!

Loving how you are pages are turning out and your insert page rocks. I almost never use different page sizes but love how you used your landscape sized pictures and journaled on your other spots. Great idea!
