Project Life: April 1 - 7

Another week of Project Life is ready to share. My desk was a mess while putting this together and I just grabbed things out of the piles for this week.  So it is a bit of a hodge podge of product, but its seems to all work together. Once these pages were finished, I did clean up my desk and I'm now ready to make another mess!

This week I took a lot of pictures while our kids colored Easter eggs, so I decided to include an insert to contain more of those pictures. The front of the insert contains one photo that I printed and then cut into 2 X 2 inch squares.

 The back of the insert was perfect for placing some of my favorite photos from the egg coloring. I mixed in a few places with patterned paper and stickers to that it wasn't too busy with photos.

This week I used a lot of little label stickers for some quick journaling on many of the photos. I love that I can just stick a little label on a photo, write a bit and then slip it into the page protector. Quick and simple!

In addition to the label stickers, I also used a slick writer to write directly onto a photo too. It's another simple way to add some journaling without spending a lot of time.

With so many smaller pockets on the left hand side of the page, I went with only 6 bigger pockets on the right side of the layout. This made it easy to fill the space with bigger pictures and less time was spent creating fillers for a lot of pockets.

So there is another week of Project Life!  I'm still enjoying the process, but find that I'm lagging about a week behind. I need to catch up so that I can work on it during the current week. I think that will make it more meaningful to include journaling from that week instead of remembered pieces a couple of weeks later. I could keep a little notebook with thought from each week, but that just seems like a little more than I feel like doing right now.

I love looking at the book as a whole where lots of pieces of us are included in one place, so the project continues!

In addition to paper tape purchased from the office section at Target and these Heidi Swapp Label Stickers, these are the other supplies used this week:
