Project Life 2013: First Week of School

Memory KeepingAnandiRCComment

Our house has been under construction for a few weeks now so we've been scrambling to get everything moved out of the construction zone. I've been keeping up with taking pictures and making notes for Project Life, but I'm a few layouts behind on actually editing photos and constructing the pages.

I did this one 2 weeks ago and finally got the photos off my camera today. It covers the first half of September, which includes T's first week of school, a few last summer activities, and M at 11 months. 

I used cards and stickers from the last few Kelley Purkey Project Kits. I love her clean designs and color choices, though I'm not a huge fan of the glossy cardstock the cards are printed on. But yay for square corners!  

I also used some items from the Freckled Fawn OhDeerMe embellishment kits. I've gotten two so far, and LOVE the variety. I was saving (hoarding) the 2x2 wood photo frames and realized they'd be perfect to highlight one photo in the collages of each of my girls at the top left. 

I had an "extra" empty 4x6 space this week so I decided to fill it up with some journaling about our sleep situation over the past year - we've coslept with each girl at some point, weathered the newborn-waking-every-3-hours bit, and now, every 2 weeks or so if we're lucky, we get one night where NO ONE wakes us up in the middle of the night. That is heavenly.
