Week 9: February 25 to March 3.

Click on the photos for a larger view.


This is the craziest, most packed-full week of Project Life so far this year. I took some extra time to order the photos on this one, skipped ahead, and went back to it. I’m so glad I took the extra time on it because the end result is pretty awesome.


Left Side: I started off the layout with the everyday stuff from the week: snow days, Jonas potty training and finger painting, playing Clue with our family, and house fixing up.



Insert 1: February Day in the Life using Ali Edwards Day in the Life Templates.



Insert 2: 30 Days of Lists | Week 1


Insert 3, Front: Learning to screen print


Insert 3, Back: Eliza’s Harry Potter Birthday Party


Of note: To fit in more photos, I sewed an extra bit that I’d cut off of a Design A protector to a Design H protector, so it opens to a Design A. This could just as easily be accomplished by folding over Design A and clipping it closed.


Of note: Jonas colored on one of the cards; I used it anyway. The Project Life card on the far right was about Groundhog’s Day, but I covered the parts that didn’t apply with ribbon and a sticker.


The kids’ faces are blurred for privacy.


This was one AMAZING week, and I’m glad it’s in the books!

Project Life is a memory keeping concept created by Becky Higgins. It can be anything you want it to be.

I use 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”.
