Wow, it's March already. I seem to permanently live in "time is flying" mode. I don't particularly like that fact, but that's thinking and rambling for another day. One thing I am happy I spend the fleeting moments on is my everyday family life documenting (aka Project Life). (I'm using this album and these pocket pages mainly this year).I am currently caught up with 2014 and that feels really good to me. Here are some of my favorites from the February spreads. If you'd like to see my weekly spreads in full, you can see my gallery here.
This photo shows a bunch of favorites; the hearts from Studio Calico, sewing, stapling (with this mini stapler), and writing directly on photos (with these pens). But mostly, I love that it causes me to ask my daughter for photos of what she's up to when she doesn't think to send them herself.
And that these two are starting to not notice my candid picture taking.
I am crazy about the rub on transparent alphas that were part of the Studio Calico kit, and used them one week on all the photos so that I could document the entire photo filled week on one journal card:
Pretty sure that my hands down favorite this month was cutting a new shape into the page protector (details here).
That, and the capturing of our everyday ongoings. Nothing special, and special, all at the same time.
I loved the chipboard pieces from the Studio Calico kit, but also love using everyday items differently, like the card from the dollar spot at Target cut to pocket size.
More capturing of the everyday, more sharing in my daughter's life.
Making my own cards with script art will probably always be a favorite.
Same with see through pockets, this time with some hand cut paper hearts tucked inside.
Rub on stars left over from Christmas, love. But especially love the screen shot of a bunch of phone photos taken when Papa and Nike-the-dog were visiting one day.
My son actually taking pictures without being prompted by me which captures his unique photography perspective. Love it when they take the lead on telling the story.
And going with a little bit of "more is more" on occasion with the embellishing of a photo or two.
February favorites in my Project Life album...fun for me to revisit and remind myself what I want to do more of. For March that probably means another unique pocket page and another screen shot of the phone camera album. Any of you out there doing PL this year and have a link to yours to share with us? Always fun to see someone else's, so leave a comment if so!
