Well, I'm wrapping up the second week of Project Life and the last of my single-page weeks. This layout employs a minimalistic approach, as I didn't have a lot of photos and didn't feel they required a whole lot of journaling. But I still think it provides a nice snapshot of our week:
This week I switched things up a bit, using a different style page protector with a 4 x 12 slot across the top and four 4 x 6 slots. Instead of using 4 x 6 photos, though, I printed most of mine at 4 x 3, allowing me to fit two in each pocket. They are bit wobbly right now, but I plan on adhering them to the back of the photos that will be slipped in the opposite side next week.
Like I mentioned before, one of my favorite parts of this project is revisiting my stash for forgotten supplies. I have been hoarding this striped paper from KI Memories forever (they do the BEST stripes, don't they?!!) and decided it was high time to put this colorful pattern to use. I layered Days of the Week tags from Elle's Studio over it and topped it off with a red button.
Hayden brought home a stellar book report grade this week so I snapped a photo of it to include. I cropped and reduced it to 4 x 2 to fit in with the other photos. The pennant and wooden "A" were adhered on top.
To keep with my theme of exterior embellishments, I added a few pennants from Elle's to the pockets, stapling them with a mini attacher through the front of the pocket.
So that's week two for you! Because I didn't have a lot of free time for this week's spread, it had to be quick and easy and simple. Some weeks are just gonna be like that - providing more of an "overview" than lots of detailed info. And, of course, some weeks are going to be more complex. I'm already looking ahead to next week, as it includes Hayden's birthday celebration and will have a lot more photos and stories to tell. Until then - happy scrapping and Project Life-ing!
