It may be that I end up posting two weeks at a time from here on out. I was out of town for almost a week and although I didn't fall completely behind, it was really just easier to finish up the next week and present them together. There are a lot of extra photos in these weeks as well. I'm starting to wonder whether one album is going to be able to hold the entire year! I guess I'll know in about 4-5 months from now!
This is a Design G insert that I used for all of the pictures my sisters took at the World of Coke. My sons had a fabulous time with their aunts!
I also used a 6 x 12 insert to hold all of the *extras*. I like these things to display well so I sewed dividers to hold the items in place. Also, I cut an opening in the bottom of it so that one day, when I want to look at this booklet/program I can take it out without disturbing the rest of the items. Now I know some of you might wonder why I sewed the glasses away so no one can get to them. My boys love Project Life and flip through this album quite often. If I left the top open the glasses would undoubtedly make a mysterious disappearance and I would be seriously annoyed and someone would be in trouble. So sewed away safe from little hands they will stay!
The remainder of Week 10
I have come to the conclusion that try as I might to add a bunch of little details or embellishments it really just isn't me. I've seen a lot of Project Life designer pages, and I even like quite a few, but I keep getting drawn back to the fact that this is supposed to be our story, with our pictures and our journaling. As long as I have those two things then that's all that really matters. I'm good with that, even though it may appear to be a bit stripped down from what is fast becoming the norm. I love using the Silhouette's print & cut and this week I experimented with adding pattern papers to shapes and then using the advanced features to pan the patterns in and out, and to increase the transparency so I could still journal effectively. I love the Studio software and am enjoying using it to tell our story. To each his own!
Thanks for stopping by!
