Project Life 2013: Week Four.

This was a crazy busy, but overall good week and I had fun putting together this spread.... it's one of my favorites so far!

Click on the photos to enlarge them and see them a little better.

Week of: January 21-27, 2013.

What happened this week? We ran a 5k with no advance thought/planning....we went for a strength training workout at the gym and registered on the spot.  Totally spontaneous and was a lot of fun.  Brian won the race too! Speedy Gonzales there ;)  He also spent a lot of time working on our loft -- building my sewing desk, installing it and starting the trim on the loft half wall.  So proud of him! :)

Anything special about the spread?  Lots of little details crammed into all the photos -- I added lots of journaling to the photos before printing.  Also incorporating more wood veneers this week -- seemed appropriate with all the building Brian did this week!

Techniques this week:  Lots of typing directly onto the photos before printing.  Total time saver.

Overall thoughts: I really like typing onto the photos before printing.  I am editing them anyway to resize them and it significantly shortens how much time it takes for me to "finish" the spread for the week.  I'll definitely be using more of them. 

Oh.  And my husband is a rock star.  Four weeks in and he's built bookshelves, added doors & hardware to them, painted our upstairs common area/stairwell, built and installed a sewing desk and is adding trim to our loft's half wall.  So awesome.  He's the best!! :)

Project Life, created by Becky Higgins, is a memory keeping system to help capture the bits and pieces of life.  I am using it to capture photos + thoughts on our life every week.  You can view all the posts here.

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:

Ink: Basic Black, Real Red

  1. I love the format you're using to blog about these PL pages. The 'what happened', 'anything special', etc. is so much more meaningful than just showing the pages. I'm not a big fan of PL, but I think it's because I see them just plopped onto blog posts instead of broken down and REALLY shown on blog posts like the way you're doing. I'm definitely warming up to PL after seeing your first four weeks.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love! I truly appreciate it and will return the love whenever I can! Due to spam, all comments are moderated, so it will show up as soon as I have a chance to see it! :)
