Project Life | Week One

20140106008January 1- 5

I kept this week really simple! My goal for 2014 is to only spend 1 hour each week on project life. This week I ordered pictures Sunday afternoon, picked them up Monday morning, and finished the layout Monday afternoon. This worked out really well and I’m going to try to keep it up, so I don’t get behind this year.20140106007-Edit_edited-1 Continue reading

Project Life: Weeks 17- 18

20130612002-EditApril 22- May 05 This was a pretty normal couple weeks for us. I went with a pink color scheme for this layout and I love how it turned out. I really tried to keep things simple. I like a nice balance between creative embellishments and still letting the photos be the focus. This is getting easier to  each week. I think its because I’ve had 6 months to practice.

A few highlights from weeks 17 & 18: We made baked goat cheese // May Goals // celebrating just because // virtual walk competition at work // bike ride // homemade granola // DIY calendar //  20130612012-EditRight side of the layout. 20130612005-EditLeft side of layout

April 6- April 10 I Love this insert so much. It might be because looking at these picture makes me happy, but I also love how this came together. The bright coral/ orange paper mixed with the blue is perfect for vacation photos. I kept the embellishments simple to let the photos stand out.
