Right Side: Jonas’s scarf, Eliza rocking her uniform, and a date to the Nelson sculpture park.

Usually, I move roughly chronologically through the week in spreads, but this time around I laid things out more based on design / room for stories. So I have some mid-week stuff on here, then move to a Sunday date, then move back to during the week stuff in the insert. Make it work for you, switch up your routine if it isn’t working.

I did a little bit of stash busting with Amy Tangerine leaves I’ve been hoarding (because they are SO PRETTY). I used them to add a little bit to the flair I used on the page (the yellow flair is from Kelly Purkey and the heart flair is older American Crafts). To get the two leaves behind the card, I used an x acto knife and ruler to cut around the corner of the page protector, and adhered the leaves to the back of the card. I like breaking up the lines of the pockets a bit sometimes.

Right Side: Meeting my mom’s boyfriend, baking pumpkin bread with Jonas, Jonas is The Flash, seeing our friend Paul’s comedy show.

Also, when the colors in a photo aren’t salvageable because the lighting is bad, going black and white is always a safe bet.

I just ordered a bazillion photos from Persnickety prints, so there’s a lot more where this came from.
