Project Life 2012: Week Three

It's still early in the year, but I am really enjoying this year long project. I now have a place to save pieces of our family's family life like noodle boxes that would normally just end up in the trash. Totally loving this approach to memory keeping.

There were a bunch of photos that I wanted to include this week, so I used a page protector with more slots for photos. I'm planning on mixing in a bunch of different styles of page protectors in this project because I like the mixed look of different photo slots.

There isn't any patterned paper on the pages this week. Three of the slots include fabric scraps from a sewing project this week and the rest is photos and bits of other random things like receipts, a note from my daughter and a noodle wrapper.

We had a full and busy week at out house. Just how we like it!

Here are the highlights from our week:

*Spent MLK Day at the Zoo with the Dibbles. Kids wanted to go home and play video games, but we *tortured* the kids by keeping them outside in the beautiful weather while playing with their friends and eating fresh kettle corn.
*Sewing projects for me. Getting a gift ready for Nancy's (sister in law) baby shower.
*Baby shower prep: shopping, cleaning, cooking, decorating, etc.
*Dad, Max, Gramps and Uncle Dan went shooting in the desert during the baby shower.
* Dad and Max went to a US v. Venezula soccer match.
* I went to a new monthly Pinterest group started by my friend Hillary.

So far this year, I've been able to print out the photos on Saturday afternoon for that week and let them dry overnight. I clean out my purse and set out any receipts of other things I've collected during the week. On Sunday afternoon, I put it altogether in the album.

Next weekend I will be at CHA in Anaheim, so I'm hoping to be able to work a little more on this during the week. I really don't want to get behind because then it won't be very fun to play catch up. I like putting this together while everything is still fresh in my mind from the week.

Week 3 Project Life Supplies: Design A  & F Page Protectors, Fabric purchased at Hobby Lobby, Banner and Enjoy Tag from Scrapbook Circle Printables, Journaling Card from the Project Life Clementine Core Ki, Brown Precision Pen and Slick Writer from American Crafts.
