Here we go, Week 3! I've had this done for a little while now (we're starting Week 7 tomorrow!) but I just never got around to taking pics of the layout (I'm more focused on actually finishing the layouts than taking pics of them afterwards! haha)

Nothing too spectacular or different about this week; I did more Instagram and regular photo collages, used digital elements on a photo (again, a freebie from Ali), writing on photos (something I really enjoy doing), the 'constants', and random bits and pieces. I also included a card that Dan's nan sent with a package for Violet (bottom left corner, it's vintage and so sweet!), the business card from the tattoo salon where Dan got his tattoo, as well as a hidden journaling card from the Project Life kit with a message to Dan about his tattoo that's meant only for him (I stuck an Instagram on the front). I had to include our "Weekly Review" on the Title card in the top corner, but that's ok, I think that I will get better at narrowing down my pictures as the weeks go on (and I'm sure that I'll have less photos as the weeks progress, since right now I'm still super enthusiastic about the project and am snapping quite a few, almost everyday).

Sorry for the crummy photos, the layouts are hard to photograph and are much cooler in real life!

I finished Week 4 and am just a few pics away from finishing Week 5, so I'm not too behind, which is good, I'm hoping to get them done this weekend so that I can start documenting and working on the week we're actually in (if that makes sense, haha).

Still loving this project!

I still need to do Violet's update, but who knows when that will happen :S

Back to share Week 2! I am enjoying this project so much, I can't even say, I just reaaallllly hope I can keep it up.

This week I actually included my first extra insert (didn't take long!) I did Violet's 3-month 'official' photoshoot so I wanted to include shots from that as well as our weekly shots, so that meant inserting a 6X12 page protector to include 6 more 4X6 photos. I LOVE having different sized protectors throughout the album, so I will be doing it at least once a month I think.


Other things I did this week: Digital elements on a photo (the "love you" text was a freebie from Ali Edwards from awhile ago), a letter to Violet 'collage', writing to her about her photoshoot (created in PS), writing directly on the photos ('old school' scrapping, I tell ya!), labels and journaling spots on photos, a little 4X6 card with an instagram strip, and the 'constants' I mentioned last time (grocery receipt, iPhone weather shot, weekly review card).

I just finished up Week 3, so I'll post that soon, and I hope to have Week 4 done before the end of this week so that I'll be 'caught' up officially (I don't mind being a week behind but I don't want to be more than that or else my mind gets too foggy).


(PS-Didn't mean to do it, but this week's layout is ALL about Violet, haha, there's only one picture of Victor, none of me or Dan, and a few of inanimate objects...oh well, not going to stress, some weeks will have more going on for certain family members than others).
