Today Pocket Your Year Creative Team member Michelle is here to share her take on October’s Nerd Nest Challenge, Document Your Favorite Season.

I’m thrilled to be able to share some Project Life App pages with everyone today! My favorite season is summer vacation! We travel to the Outer Banks every summer with friends. It’s a time for our kids to reconnect and for the adults to relax. This past summer, my family also spent a week at the beach with my mom, dad, sister and her family.

Two weeks at the beach resulted in lots of memories to preserve!! I had a lot of photos to scrapbook and most of my photos were on my phone, so I decided to try the app. I ended up with more than 60 pages for the 2 weeks. I typically shy away from bright colored cards on my pages. The beach pages allow me to branch out and use brighter colors. I also like the options and reduced cost of the kits in the app.


Some of my favorite photos and pages center around the kids in the water – at the edge of the ocean or in the pool. I love the pure joy on their faces as they splash in the water or jump the waves.



This year too, we had some excitement at the end of the week. Two snakes fell out of a tree and into the pool area. They struggled and fought – one trying to eat the other – for about 30 minutes. The girls watched and were fascinated. They cheered for the tiny green snake to get away from the black snake. We never saw which snake won. Somehow the green snake got away and they both escaped under the pool fence.



Thank you so much for sharing how you used the Project Life app to document your favorite season with us, Michelle!
