Project Life Tuesday 3.13.12

3.13.12 what a weird number combination.

Don’t know why that struck me strange, but it did…

Anyway…

Hello and welcome to Project Life Tuesday!
The Mom CreativeIf you are stopping by from The Mom Creative, welcome & thanks for clicking over! If you are not, you might want to click over there when you’re done here for some more great Project Life inspiration!

The pages are simpler this week and no inserts to share – I have been so busy with work and sick kiddos that the fact that the pages are complete is a major accomplishment for me this week. Still loving the project and being able to stay current with what’s going on in our lives with just a small time investment on Saturday afternoons. I’m guarding that creative time very carefully as it has become a little oasis for me in the midst of a lot of busy-ness in our lives.

Without any further chatter – here are the pages:

(sorry for the shadow – didn’t know it was there when I took the pictures!)

The left side:imgp4042

Using my creative license and filled a journal slot with a little cut piece of the box of muffin mix the girls love and request at least once a week. I also included a picture of my brother and his family that they sent me. They are big skiers and go almost every weekend. So it is only fitting to include that here, I think.

I also made my own journaling card (yay, me!) and thought it turned out pretty well (This week) if I do say so myself.

I am loving using the smaller slots for the cell phone pictures and being able to capture all the little bitty bits of life that way – not being confined to only seven photos a week. I think I am averaging closer to 15 pictures that way.

I also used a nifty new program I discovered for my iPhone – PicFrame – that allows you to fit multiple photos into little bitty frames – which gives you even more options! (eek!)

Here’s one I did on Friday night:img_1126

I love how it turned out – and the program was very easy to figure out. This was my very first attempt.

I just stuck it into a 4×6 picture and added some journaling and another photo beside it… so I got four pictures and journaling all in one 4×6 photo! Pretty cool. (I did that part in PSE, not on the phone)

The rest of the right side page was devoted to our Saturday adventures with our friends – a few stickers on the pictures for embellishments and that was about it – I kept it simple. The story is over on the left side page.

The quote card is from Design House Digital – 2012 Life Blocks by Audrey Neal. Love those.

The little starburst on my journal card is from there, too. Kate Teague – This Life

I can’t recall where the other things are from – mostly freebies, I think.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a new favorite recipe with you. Smile

    Your pages look great Lois! I totally agree about putting the smaller pictures into the 3×4 slots, that’s why I like collages too – just want to squeeze as much in as possible.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely pages Lois! I like the way you’ve made the photo collages to fit more into the page – they look great.
