Project Life | Week Four

I'm a little behind this week on posting my Project Life, but I got the spread done before the end of the week, and we've officially closed out January and I'm STILL caught up! Yay me!

I'll be honest, I'm not totally in love with the spread this week. The left side I'm okay with, but the right side has too many contrasting colors and makes my eyeballs bleed a little, but I have to just get over it. The purpose of Project Life is to document our life- not create a work of art. I just need to keep reminding myself of that.

Close up of Left:

This page shows my deeper dive into "properly" learning Adobe Illustrator, my new boots (yay me!), some journaling about Lilly and her crazy still-not-all-the-way-in front teeth, a beautiful sunset, a journaling card about Jules telling me she loves me "five much", and two completely adorable (yeah- I'm not gonna lie- I love these) pics of Lilly that I took while tickling her so I could get a good shot of her teeth.

Close up of Right:
This week shows off a picture of Daddy snuggling with the girls, Jules and me both doing some doodling (me for designs, Jules just because), a pic of Jules after waking up from her nap, a journaling card with a quote from Jules about her being a "genius" because she shared her sippy cup with Lilly, a journaling card and instagram pic about my book club night, an instagram pic of the celebratory Bellini that I drank after a successful shopping venture for a Bridesmaids dress for my cousin's wedding, pics of Lilly holding Daddy's and Jules' hands and walking, and a picture of Lilly telling me some story (she likes to point).

I'm excited that this is the last spread of January, which means that I get to play with a new kit for February's layouts. I've already chosen the All of My Love papers as the basis for my February layouts, and I'm excited to get to use some BYOC stuff from TLP to snazzy it up a bit.

If you haven't grabbed my free template yet, be sure to grab it here. Other products used this week:

Thank you Julie! I am framing a series of three of those pics I took of Lilly. They turned out so cute! And thanks for the note about the journaling cards- you can see which products I used at the end of the post. This was the first week that I opened myself up to using stuff from other designers. Fun!

gotta love a laughing baby! and I also have to keep reminding myself that my pages don't have to be stand alone 'works of art!' your pages look great and don't make my eyes bleed :)
