Project Life 2013: Week 37


Welcome to Project Life 2013, week 37. This week I'm using the Just Add Color edition again. Really, it's because I started with those page protectors and just continued with them. Next week I'll probably have a little bit of that mixed with another kit. I'd like to mix in Just Add Color once in awhile but not every week. It had just come though, and I really wanted to play with it! I'm sure I'm not alone.


This week came together so fast. You might not think so but I pretty much just slipped in my photos, added journaling and a couple of extra embellishments and it was done.

Here's a look at the left side:


I used an awesome card from We R Memory Keepers for a bit of a title (even though my week number went on a different card). I thought it summed up the week nicely, because there were lots of "adventures."


Brad hit 20 years at his company this week, and there was a company event that recognized him. He received a letter and an award statue, so I snapped a photo of the statue and included the letter in the album.


Brad and I also went to a function for my company that celebrated a milestone we reached. We thought we were having dinner and seeing some comedians but it turned out to be an Ambush Murder Mystery. We had so much fun, and in the end, I picked the killer and the motive and so I won a little prize pack (consisting of a toy gun and a copy of Jurassic Park, but hey, I loved it!).

I did get an awesome certificate that I could put into my Project Life:


(This photo also shows the map of Georges Island that I added to the album).

Finally on that left side I added our tickets for Georges Island (didn't have room on the right side) and photos of our playdate with the Castners.

This "love" cutout is a Silhouette file:


I just used a Zig glue pen to adhere it to my photo. Perfect!

The right side is all about our trip to Georges Island:


We took Austin out to Georges Island, which is an island in Boston Harbor that has an old fort, Fort Warren. Lots to explore. I posted about that here, if you'd like to check it out.

In the top two slots, I cropped down a panorama that I took with my iPhone of Boston Harbor to a 12x4 size, then cropped that in half twice for printing. I love the look of one photo stretched over the two pockets.

Also, these little 2x2 slots are so cute and perfect for including multiple photos. I cropped mine to 2x2 and printed them on one 4x6 photo sheet:


Finally, I used one of the amazing overlays that were on HSN. I jumped on these babies the second I saw them and am SO glad I did. They sold out so fast. And they are AWESOME. There are only a few duplicates of frames, not phrases, and they really are crystal clear once you take off the liner sheet. I love this one over my photo of Boston:


I loved that phrase to define how I felt about viewing the Boston skyline from the ferry boat. And I mean, come on!? The overlays are just so incredible. They're so easy, just slip them right over a photo. It preserves the original photo, and it's EASY. Sure, I could add a digital brush to my photos before I print them. I mean, I design digital brushes. But I usually just want to get my photos printed out, and don't spend the time to add them to my photos, even if I should. These overlays are perfect if you want to put something on your photo but forgot before you printed them. I can't say enough about them, they rock, and I really, really hope this is a product line Becky Higgins continues with.

So that's week 37. I hope you guys have a great week!
