I started Project Life Tuesday in 2010 because:
- I needed to keep myself accountable and on top of my photos each week.
- My family loved being able to count on a weekly post with pics of the kids.
- I thought others might want to keep themselves accountable too.
It was a huge blessing and so I am excited to be kicking off my third year of this series.
Each Tuesday, I will share my spread from the previous week, as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures/layouts. This year, Epson is sponsoring Project Life Tuesday, and they provided me with their Epson Stylus R2880 Large Format Photo Printer (C11CA16201) for many of my album’s photos. Printing photos at home is hopefully going to help keep me on track!
Sunday night was the first time I had worked on Project Life in weeks and it was so fun! I still have a lot of catching up to do, but am hoping that over the next couple weeks I can get back on track.
For June 24-30, I kept things pretty simple. We did a lot of swimming that week and had Adeline’s birthday party. Since I am making a photo book for her birthday party, I didn’t insert a ton of pictures from it in Project Life – just a couple to get a sense of it.
I used the heart grid cardstock from my stash to do a bit of journaling about Adeline at 12 months. I added the 12 with some thickers.
The back of the 6×12 + the next 6×12 insert are all photos from Adeline’s birthday. I embellished with a few glittery thickers and did the journaling on a card from my Project Life kit. I also added stickers that say birthday brunch on the photo of the room.
For the last spread, you can see the rest of the birthday photos + a page dedicated to our Family Pool Night. We got so many great shots, I decided to do a whole page.
