I meant to post my PL project yesterday and got so busy making gumbo for Super Bowl (and drinking wine WHILE making gumbo) that it just didn't happen. But there was a very large pot of yumminess as a result, and it was the perfect accompaniment to a great game, stellar commercials and a pretty cool half-time performance by Madonna. But, uh, her arms still scare me.
Anyway, last week's Project Life proved to be a bit of a challenge because when I sat down to put it together, I realized I had a whopping TWO photos from last week. Last week was hectic - I was prepping for CHA, Hayden had an extraordinary amount of homework, and we were generally preoccupied with more important things than taking pictures.
But I decided to used the lack of photos as an opportunity to feature other snippets of life - emails, packaging, tickets, receipts. And I filled in some of the spaces by taking photos of stuff we completed this week (booth projects for CHA, a first-draft of a writing assignment.)
I used several bold patterned papers from my stash and to balance them out, I added in liberal doses of kraft as my neutral. To spice up the kraft a bit, I pulled out my recently neglected stamp drawer and had a little fun stamping numbers, text, and background designs with brown ink:
The shot of Hayden's homework was dropped onto a digital paper in Photoshop before I printed it out, which helps it coordinate with the rest of the spread.
So even though the week isn't photo-heavy, I had fun getting creative with other bits and pieces that give a glimpse into our life. Next week will feature my CHA trip, so lack of photos definitely won't be an issue!
Enjoy your Monday!
