Project Life Week 4

This feels like a busy week for me, though I can't seem to pinpoint exactly why. There hasn't been anything out of the ordinary going on really, but I feel like the hours of the day are filled to the brim with busy-ness. Hence the inconsistent posting here this week. Alas such is the life of a mama-with-babe, inconsistent.

I am happy to say I've completed Week 4 in the Project Life album and just sent Week 5 pictures to the printers to possibly work on in tomorrow's forecasted snow day. In case you're following, we're in Week 6 of the year. Seriously, week 6 of 2012. Insanity. Anywhooo ... here's a glance at Week 4 in my album:

An overall look at the two pages + insert

a closer look at left-hand side. I used a mix of picture sizes this week which was fun.
The journalling card tells the story of HP's love of playing with our sneakers.
Also love, love, love including this instax shot taken with relatives mini instax camera.
And HP loves, loves, loves that lollipop drum!

Here's the right-hand side of the week 4 spread.
A few more varying sizes of pics + "stuff": grocery receipt, movie stub
On this pic, I added a journalling strip using Des' facebook status/photo share commentary on the same pic.
simple + easy way to capture Des' thoughts in the album too :)
Here's the front of the 8.5x11 insert for the week.
I made a simple layout using a picture of Des heading off for the first day of the new job.
The title is from this blog post about that change. Then I included a slightly modified version of the
blog post text on the back side of the insert. It really tells the "bog" story of that week and gives a glimpse
of the smaller details too. Perfect.

All in all, it was another good week for the Ryan Trio. If it snows tomorrow and our planned events have to be postponed, I might be back on the weekend with Week 5. If not, you'll be sure to see it next week.
