it was a great month.
can't believe we are now entering the second month of this year twenty.13.
yes i do participate in project life.
so happy today to share weeks 1 & 2 with you.
week 3 is in the works.
but had to take a back seat to a few other projects right now.
so for today...
let's talk 1 & 2.
if you are new to project life here, here is a bit of what i do for every week.
i always have a larger photo (if possible) of the two year old. it is almost always in one of the top pockets. i absolutely adore tracking his life with this weekly photo.
i always have a pocket designated for the date and week.
i used the studio calico 3x4 calendar card to designate the month of january. i sized the png down in photoshop elements, and kept it light grey. i just liked the very subtle font color. i will change it for future months.
another thing i do is keep to a congruent color story. i am totally loving grey...still...
so grey tones is what i kept with for this first month...
these pages are very mellow in tone, but i hope it's the photos that really tell the story in the first place.
often i will add a traditional layout insert to tell a story.
my thinking was that this photo did not really fit with the story. but it was an important photo to me. my daughter and her very good friends. i so love these girls together and am thankful for their relationship that it deserved it's own place in our family's story.
if you are on the fence about projectLIFE, i cannot encourage you enough to jump over and join this amazing journey of story+photo.
hope you will follow me as i keep up with projectLIFE 2013.
