Welcome to another week of Project Life at Elle's Studio! How are things going with your Project Life album? Have you made some exciting discoveries about this method of documenting? Are there things you struggle with? We would love for you to share your thoughts with us!
This week's Project Life covers the week of January 16-22. There is only one word to describe this week in our household: chaos. I am sure you have weeks like this. Just as we all have normal, everyday, boring weeks, there comes those weeks that are pure craziness.
A day off of school, my father-in-law was in town for a visit, heavy work loads, my husband was out of town for a day, a field trip, sick kids, an unexpected trip to the ER-- yes, all in seven days.
Since this week was really busy, I used one of Elle's Studio "This Week Lil Snippets" on my date insert. This tag provides room for a brief overview of the entire week (or you can select one day to journal about). I usually like to include an overview of the week somewhere on my layout, and this is a perfect way to accomplish that.
As I mentioned, we had an unexpected trip to the ER this week (everything is fine now). Once things settled down a bit that evening, I snapped a few iPhone photos. At the time, I felt funny doing taking photos, but I am so glad I did. I had a few instagram photos from the evening, and I used a We R Memory Keepers 12x12 photo pocket page that holds nine 4x4 photos for these photos. I trimmed the page down to hold four 4x4 photos. I ended up being the perfect insert.
On the opposite side of the insert I included only one photo and used the rest for journaling. I had previously written a blog post about our night in the ER and used that post as my journaling portion. I decided, however, to handwrite the journaling instead of printing it out on the paper. There are times I like to handwrite, and times I like to print, but this particular story I wanted in my own writing.
I included a few favorite quotes from the week on the journaling cards. I also included a journaling card written by my husband (I also love seeing his handwriting in our Project Life book).
Congrats to Melissa, the winner of last weeks giveaway!
