Wow!! Three weeks behind on this project. I knew it would eventually happen, when life just caught up with me and I just couldn’t get to everything going on around me. But I am trying really hard to get back in gear.
One of the reasons why I even dared to post my Project Life weekly pages to begin with, was to make me accountable to get them done! If not, it would be way too easy to just not work on them, so I am going to keep to it as best as I can.
Having said that though, I don’t want to bore anyone with a super long post describing each of the last 3 weeks. I’m going to try to quickly just show the layouts for each week and touch on something different that I did for each one.
This week was full of some fun things including a Bachelor Viewing party, another b-day lunch, the picking of a New Pope, a photo shoot of sweet baby Zion, a Runyon hike with the BFF, Mikey's Mission Museum presentation, and Jerry's gig. It also includes an 8x10 insert with a collage of pictures and a single favorite 8x10 picture from our visit to the Getty. I didn’t do much decorating, but I did use some washi tape, and and Ali Edward skill of writing straight on my pictures for a cool change and I really liked that. I also decided to journal using Word and then print it on card stock to be able to fit more in and still make it look neat.

Also, If you look closely at the insert, you'll notice that I actually used my sewing machine to sew all the way around the picture using a cute star stitch. I've been wanting to do something like this for a while and I finally got my chance.

Spring Break was here and this year we were determined to make it count and have fun! It was nice to have the boys home, but we had a full week planned. It turned out to be College Tour week for our family (blog post is coming!). Christian had a full day out with his Upward Bound group on Tuesday to tour the campuses of Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine. Then from Wednesday - Friday, we went on the road with our dear friends, The Halaby’s to do our own College tour up northern California . We visited UCSB, Cal Poly SLO and Stanford on Friday, and we made a pit stop at Pismo Beach. This week I used collages of pictures we took of each school, and I am going to let Christian do most of the journaling to get his perspective/thoughts/comments about each school so he can look back on his own comparison when he actually decides where he wants to go later.
Gosh it feels sooo good to be caught up!!!
Either way, I'm heading over to The Mom Creative to catch up with the others as well.
From my corner to yours...Happy Wednesday!
