This year, I’m making weekly pocket scrapbooking spreads in addition to other forms of memory keeping, like monthly spreads for Day in the Life and thematic pages. I include monthly breaks in my album for all of the extra documenting I like to include over and above weekly documenting.

This is one of those extra in-between monthly breaks thematic pages! This page is on the backside of the last weekly spread from January.
It documents the four of us going a friend’s concert. A few of Eliza’s and Jonas’s friends were there too (so cool that Eliza’s friends have little brothers and sisters Jonas’s age and they can all play together). I wanted to document how wonderful it was to hear our friend play (The Sexy Accident never disappoints), to see the kids get up and dance, and to watch our kids’ relationships with their friends blossom.
I wanted the photobooth strip photo of Eliza and her friend to be large, but I was locked in with the Design A from the previous week. I got around this by spreading the photo through three pockets. I printed the photo 6×8 and cropping it, which was the easiest way to get this outcome with the white borders.
I had fun making my own stamped card for this page using the triangles stamp in the March Oh Deer Me kit. I repeated the stamp in red, then added another layer in black. This messy look added to the rock music theme and the movement reminds me of dancing. I have fun trying to convey environment or feeling visually with products like this.
