OBSERVATIONS: My math skills might not be the sharpest, but as of last week, there are just 12 weeks left in the year. In the year, people! Seriously. Time flies. And what makes me both happy and surprised is how I’ve kept up with this project. Granted, last week, I had very few photos to choose from. I took hardly any and you can kind of see where the so-called filler lies. What can I say? Not every week is going to be rich and full of photo-worthy times. (Or at the very least, some weeks find this mama too busy to pull out the camera—high tech or otherwise—to document life.)
Let’s review how I cobbled this all together.
Ah yes. When you take your daughter’s name tag and a close up shot of a knob on your grill, you know you’re reaching.
I supposed I could have used each of the holiday shots separately, but they work so much more nicely as a small collage.
And I have Aidan to thank for the fabulous photo of Dan and Mary Tyler Moore in downtown Minneapolis. I love that she snaps away without even being told or asked. Imagine that!
Here is the weekly recap.
And last but not least, another filler image but one that makes me insanely happy and comforted. Because Aidan has an iPhone, I can locate her phone’s exact whereabouts using the awesome Find My Friends app. Now in my day, that might have seen a bit Big Brother-ish. Heck, it still does today, but when my girl is out on her Behind The Wheel driving class, I find immense comfort knowing exactly where she is practicing her parallel parking.
A quick side note: did you know it’s really easy to make your own Project Life 3 x 4 cards using some digital paper and word art? Here’s a short video showing you how I took a digital patterned paper and some word art to make the “Love My Life” card. I also made my own card on the first spread that says “Love October.” The possibilities are endless for creating and customizing your own cards.
Note: create your card file in PSE to be 2.875 wide x 3.9375 tall for the perfectly sized Project Life card.
