project life : week 4.

It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog with any Project Life layouts. That’s in part due to being able to find a good light source… and part because I’ve been busy trying to just keep up with my book. I am up to Week 12 now. But I’ve made a total of 14 spreads—one extra one for a trip to Hollywood Studios and another one for a trip to Epcot. (Florida Resident Spring Passes. Gotta love it!)

I may be behind (I’m not counting!), but I still love Project Life—more than ever! It’s honestly changed my life.

First, it’s amazing to be scrapping so close to the events—when I can still remember important little details! That’s awesome.

And the freedom I’ve found in limiting myself to NOT always using my DLSR camera also amazes me. For most of this project, I’ve used my iPod together with Instagram. Then, starting here in Week 4, I started using my crappy little pre-paid phone. I was surprised to discover that the quality was probably better than my first digital camera! I would have never thought to use my camera phone before this. So, that also has had a big impact on my life. I’m capturing moments that I ordinarily would have overlooked!

And to have gotten this far… to have 14 spreads done and in my book. It’s wonderful to flip through the pages and see each week. My kids LOVE to look in the album and talk about the things they remember. And I can already see changes in their little faces from January. Sigh.

So… I love it, if you can’t tell. LOL!

Here are my pages for Week 4:

We met with some good friends in Orlando and I have to thank Charla for sharing these photos with me. She’s such a great photographer! This was the first photo-heavy page I made and also the first time I tried the “D” page protectors for a layout:

As I go along and try new things, new ideas come to mind and I tackle the challenges. Did I forget to take a lot of pics? I have smooshed two slow weeks on to a page each. Or, I’ve gone back and taken pictures of ordinary household things. Too many pictures? I’ve spread them out. It all takes planning and notes… but the whole process is SO MUCH FUN!

I’ll be back with more Project Life on Monday. I have some catching up to do…
