Project Life 2012 | Week 29

Week 29, 55 photos, and a whole lotta love for this project.

Project Life 2012 | Week 29

Quick and easy this week, just the way I like it.

I used non-pocketed layout for Week 28, so I went with it and stuck with a traditional looking layout for the left.

I treated these little 5×5 squares like little separate pages. There’s a collection of photos of the kids reading on one side (“Our summer is filled with books”), and a bit of summer fun on the other (PLAY ribbon hose water TALK).

The first side of the insert is a collection of photos of an early birthday dinner with my mom’s side of the family (my birthday was yesterday). I printed the photos off on 8.5 x 11 photo paper and filled the blank spaces with washi tape strips.

Blowing out the candles, plumber’s crack on Jonas.

I love photos of those two little guys so much. Cousins are built-in best friends.

The back of the insert has text and photos lifted from this post. I love that it looks like it’s part of the layout behind it. Layering is awesome.

I printed the text teal-ish, but it was a happy accident that the text coordinated with the patterned paper I ended up using. The only non-digital element is the hand-drawn square, which I thought the page needed. Otherwise the text looked like it was flying around. Jake doesn’t like it when I do that. What do you think about it?

Cute kid photos + the week’s Instagrams. Jonas started making that cute face to try to get out of trouble. Eliza lost her 3rd tooth. Loving her big-gapped smile.

I used a 6×6 paper pad (by My Mind’s Eye) for the background papers on this page to speed up the process.

Instagram photos include photos of E’s school, the kids being artsy, the park, a board game, a latte, a computer crash, out with the old and in with the new dishes, and getting to see the Dark Knight Rises.
