Project Life 2013 | Week 5

Left Side: Weird weather (hot jacket weather to snow in just a few days), cute kiddos, Jonas coloring and describing what’s going on in his art for the first time (so cute), Jake replacing the iMac hard drive.

Of note: There’s blurring for privacy reasons. Some people close to us shared that they are having a baby! We took a photo of the couple holding a sonogram photo, and I wrote a note to the future baby about being excited to meet him or her.

I used the Project Life Baby Edition Kit, even though this isn’t a baby layout. At least half of the kit is useable for non-baby stuff. Love it.

I used my notes from my weekly planner to include what happened over the week and what’s going on in the photos on this page.

Two Inserts + Right Side: The rest of the layout is from January’s Day in the Life. Read about putting together the templates and read the post with the January photos and words.

Project Life 2013 | Week 5

This week is super photo and word heavy, and the only fanciness is two Project Life journaling cards. I chose cards that worked with the cleanness of the Day in the Life template, and I love how it turned out. Totally okay with the weeks not being “even”. Some weeks will include a lot of products and creativity, some will be super, super simple like this one!

Do you ever change up your style or are you pretty consistant on the simple-to-complicated spectrum?
