Project Life 2013 | Week 8 by Megan Anderson

After weeks of going insert happy, I finally have a simple Project Life spread! This week was mostly about snow and snuggling up in hermitude, so there wasn’t a whole lot of stuff to try to squeeze in. Well, I say that, but there are still 21 photos in there!

Left side: This side focuses on the indoor part of our snow day week: Eliza’s Fisherman’s Pie (from Children’s Step-By-Step Cook Book), documenting the price of filling up our car, Jonas sautéing dinosaurs, the kids planing with a vintage adding game, yoga, Jonas at lunch, reading books before bedtime.

Use quilting rulers to line up photos in a grid | by Megan Anderson

Of note: This week began on the back of a traditional layout from week 7, but I still wanted a grid / pocketed page protector look. I used quilting rulers to help me line up the cards in a grid (though I was quick about it and didn’t worry about it being perfect).

The journaling card is from the Snow Day Printables by rukristin. The cards are actually for snowstorm Nemo (which was not this storm), but there were a few general cards that worked on there as well!

Right side: This page is all about the snow! Half is documenting our outdoor activities: snowball fights, shoveling, having to carry Jonas because the snow came up to his knees, snow angels… The other half is all about ice skating.

Of note: I’m sad that I took a picture of this layout weird: the little photo in the bottom left corner is MUCH darker than it is in real life and you can’t really tell what’s going on. I caught Jake throwing a snowball at me mid-flight. It’s a pretty cool picture. Also, I think I look goofy in all of these pictures, but I’m a firm believer in getting yourself in there anyway. No one else thinks I look goofy. Or, at least, not in a bad way. I’m my own worst critic, and I’m sure you are too!

Hope you enjoyed our snow week! Now that I’m caught up with doing and sharing, Project Life spreads will be scheduled on Wednesdays. I’m going to be sharing on a delay to take the pressure off. So look for Week 9 next week!

I use a my custom Blurb planner, which can start and end at any date, to keep track of my journaling for Project Life, so I have rich text even when I get “behind”.
