Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2013 If you are new to The Mom Creative, welcome. I hope you will stay awhile. I’m Jessica – wife to Matthew, mom to Elias, a silly and spirited five-year-old, and Adeline, a spunky two-year-old. I’m also a marketing professional, savvy deal finder, photo lover and memory keeper trying to juggle it all.
Each Tuesday, I share my most recent spread as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures/layouts. Some links are affiliate links.
This weekend I was able to mostly catch-up on my photos for Project Life. I just have two weeks left in October to process– yay!
I was only able to totally complete one layout though. I stuck with Project Life’s truest style – just photos, journaling cards and words.
For the first spread I used Design A and Design H. All the photos in the spread were from labor day and I was able to use one journaling card (cheerful day) to describe all the images. I could have added some additional journaling spots directly on the photos, but I was all about getting the photos in the album and moving on! The photos speak for themselves anyways. You can’t go wrong with zoo and pool photos!
On the back of Design H are simply more photos. I love the bottom left picture. In photoshop I edited 3 photos of Adeline to 2×6 to make the mini collage of her pouting because she didn’t get her way. She kills me!
Then, for the first side of Design G insert, I split it in half – the top photos are of Adeline and the bottom are from when our friends Brian and Chris visited for the weekend. (Side story – Chris and I have been friends since we were 15! We went to rival high schools, but then both went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He moved west to Arizona, where he worked for Xyron for many years (my favorite adhesive company). He also was in our wedding. He is so dear to me.)
On the last page are some photos of my friend Katie, as well as just some around the house/life photos. I love the cropped Instagram of Elias with his dead praying mantis that he took to school for show ‘n tell. Love that kid. ☺
