Project Life 2013: Weeks 46 & 47

Welcome to weeks 46 & 47 of my 2013 Project Life album. Another two week spread to share with you here, because I did not have many photos that I felt were worth putting into my album. I did, however, have lots of "stuff" to add.

Here's a look at the whole spread:

I used the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan mini kit for this spread, which you can get in digital format here. As you can see I added a lot of memorabilia from these weeks.

Most of this left page is about week 46. That wasn't intentional, I didn't purposefully place things by date within this spread, but it worked out that way. I went to Foxwoods with my sister for a night, so I added in a photo and a few things I'd saved, such as a ticket to an exhibit, the printout from our last game of bowling (we bowled 5 strings as it was all you can bowl for just $7), and this cute little card we received when we ordered room service. To fit the whole thing in, I chopped part of it off and then cut that piece in half to go in the bottom of the 3x4 pockets.

I added a photo of my food from California Pizza Kitchen, along with a sticker from the paper stack for the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection (found at Michaels):

Here's a look at the right side:

This page ended up covering week 47. Austin started preschool, so I chopped a piece of the brochure that we received and did my journaling right on that.

The infant daycare teacher found a foot print project from when Austin was about 9 months old, so I added that into the album backed by a filler card from the Dear Lizzy mini kit. I also added a fortune from my dinner out with my mom.

I chose to do highlight cards this week, since I didn't end up with a lot of room for journaling. Then I added smaller notes on top of several of the photos, like this little tag below about a conversation I had with Austin. 

The flair button is from The Flair Shop on Etsy. Oh, and the thickers I used on my title card are both American Crafts - the aqua is "Doll" and the gray is "Roster."

I think this layout turned out nicely despite the lack of photos. All of the "stuff" still tells a good story of our lives over these two weeks.
