OBSERVATIONS: Week 8 at Chez Zielske was one of our more exciting ones in recent memory, and not for purely positive reasons. With Aidan's adventure in the ER, we had a week with the kind of drama we're not always accustomed to. Still, even when we were in the hospital, Aidan was in agreement when I said, "Well, this will make for some interesting additions to Project Life."
On that note, I'd like to share my Week 8 pages with one caveat: Aidan has asked that I blur out the journaling on the 6 x 12 insert and not share the photos on the back side of the insert. One of my guiding principles in blogging has always been that when someone in the family says "I'd prefer it if you didn't share that," I'm always going to honor the request. Some stories are meant to stay in the family.
The week would have been busy and full without a trip to the ER. One thing I should point out is that only a few of the photos were taken with my Canon 5D (the basketball shots and the shot of Aidan and her friend doing homework and the shot of her in the lower right corner of page 2.) The rest? All taken with my iPhone. Something I realized about one of the bonuses of using Tiny Templates is that when you have grainy, crappy lit photos that still hold the memories you want to save, they're always going to look better smaller. And of course, I'm talking tiny small.
Here are my pages for the week.
I did tweak the template title, deleting the one that comes with the set, and adding my own title in.
Again, crappy photos + Tiny Templates = Works for me!
Another thing I've been doing more of is taking screen grabs of my text messages with people. It's such a harbinger of modern day communication, isn't it? (I have a blog post on how I do screen grabs using my iPhone here.)
And that is all she wrote for Week 8.
So far, the good news? Week 9 is turning out to be much less exciting.
