OBSERVATIONS: Two words for last week's Project Life entry: text heavy.
I had lots to say and fewer pictures last week. I realize that it's not always going to work out that come Sunday afternoon I'll have tons of shots to choose from. Even though I've most definitely been taking more pictures this year, many of them have been with my cell phone.
Still, the fact that I'm keeping notes throughout the week makes it so much easier to gather the content every Sunday. It's becoming a ritual that I so look forward to. Like my own Sunday afternoon crop of one.
Aside from car drama, last week saw some pretty cool stuff for Aidan, who was invited to attend the Nobel Peace Prize Forum. She took a few photos and agreed to add her voice to the album and write up her thoughts on the event. I love having her words included this week. I'm trying to find some ways to include Cole's voice as well. Project Life can really be a family affair with just a tiny bit of encouragement.
I also decided to use another page protector style from my large variety pack. I wanted to have some vertical photo slots for this current week's info, because I have a vertical postcard I plan to include (the opening announcement for the play my kids are in that opens on Friday.)
For the most part, I am happy with the basic Design A page protectors, but it's fun to be able to mix it up.
That said, here are my pages for this week.
I'm using the Project Life page dividers in my album as well.
The weekly recap:
And some more journaling close ups:
I included "continued" cards in each of my new Tiny Text Template sets so you can continue your story across multiple pockets.
And here is Aidan's entry:
And last but not least, I grabbed one of Dan's Facebook entries. He so infrequently posts to Facebook that when he does, our entire family takes notice. He's just not that into social media, so when he shows a brief interest, I can't help but document it.
I plan to record a short video over the weekend, hopefully, to show how I do screen grabs of Facebook posts to get the best resolution. Meant to do it yesterday, but my birthday got in the way.
Have a great weekend.
