Week 15 and Project Life is officially my favorite project that I’ve ever done. EVER. I’m excited about all the life that’s getting captured and I look forward to the process every week.
I’ve been very good about not using inserts lately (I’m trying to cut down on album bulk), but this week we celebrated Easter, had a family photo shoot, and hosted two big family dinners. So an insert was justified.
The left page is dedicated to Easter Sunday. I had fun using bright Spring colors.
Easter baskets! The textured off-white paper is backing from a pack of stickers. Packaging for scrapbooking supplies (and other products) is often awesome–so don’t overlook it or throw it away!
Photos from Easter morning. Notice that I look awful. I’m all about including photos that capture the memory, putting vanity aside. I also included a photo of Eliza that was super blurry, because it best showed her excitement.
I wanted to use up a lot of the Easter themed embellishments I had, so I put a bunch of eggs and chicks in a row on the bottom (it’s a mix of sticker and rub-ons). I even “hid some eggs” in the plant! I’m going to try very hard to stop hoarding supplies.
Easter morning journaling | Easter morning Eliza couldn’t wait and ran downstairs. She found almost all the eggs before the rest of us got up–she had to re-hide some for Jonas. She left her basket along though–this girl knows her photo ops. Jonas threw an egg on the floor and jammed a bunch of jelly beans in his mouth before we could get to him!
I wanted to connect these two spots to show that they cover the same event, so I used the same paper on both and used my go-to of spreading stickers over more than one spot.
Easter dinner journaling | We had Easter dinner at our house. Ham, potatoes, salad, fruit, cheese, deviled eggs–YUM! Our moms and sisters came and we had a total blast. Oh, and those are pop-on nails on Eliza!
I love this photo of my sister Taylor and Eliza.
I doubled layered the washi tape underneath the sticker so the washi would stand out more.

I made a teeny tiny insert out of a single page protector spot that I trimmed off for an insert in a past week. I just punched a hole through all the layers so I’d be able to put it through the binder rings. I used a brad to keep the open sides together.
Journaling | This week we had an adventure! We did a family photo shoot downtown, had dinner at Chipotle, and went bowling at Lucky Strike. What an amazing day!
The other side of the teeny tiny insert is purely decorative. I used a sticker to cover up the back of the brad.
The photos from our family shoot.

The back of the insert has a “This Week in Instagram” list. Each item corresponds with one of the photos on the right.
I typed each of the Instagram descriptions with my favorite typewriter. Typewriter scrapbooking tip: add text before you adhere anything onto the page.
I also included a screenshot of a Google + hangout with my friend Allie.
The last page has photos from a family party on the top (my Grandpa was out of town for Easter and my Aunt’s birthday, so we had a late party to celebrate). On the bottom is a collection of 36 one inch Instagram photos.
Journaling | Saturday we had faux Easter / a birthday party for Beth. Poppy & Bev were on a cruise over Easter, so we had this post-poned party instead! We <3 family get-togethers!

I fall more deeply in love with Project Life every week! Guess what– I started on my 2011 Project Life! Get ready to see some spreads with brand spankin’ new Jonas.
