Project Life 2013 - Week 3

Hello Project Life Week 3...a week created using Snap Life by Simple Stories, quite possibly the cutest scrapbook line ever :)
Check out the title card...
...I added the number stickers to reflect the dates, the brackets and the other alpha stickers, ALL from Snap Life...the hardest part was choosing which elements to use!

So bright and colourful, and it all just goes together. I did add a few journal cards from my PL kit, but otherwise it's pretty much all Snap Life. I had the collage print below printed at KMart, cut it down and adhered it to a plain 4x6 card, along with alphas, day-of-the-week sticker and Snap Life sticker.

The right side is just as colourful, and a mixture of Snap Life and PL. The transparencies were adhered with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

During the week, we tried out a new-to-us Chinese takeaway, so I created a pocket for the menu by stapling half a journal card to a full card and added some more Snap Life goodness...too easy.

Inside the menu, I used the PL arrow stickers to show what dishes we ordered :)
Love that I finally recorded this little story of my teenage son and our daily conversation regarding his teeth cleaning (or lack thereof)...we'll laugh about this one day ;)

So that was Week 3..

...another very ordinary, very happy week in the life of us :)

So far, I am really loving my PL journey this year. I've recommitted to keeping up with it, and taking photos has become second nature...I even have my family suggesting I capture certain moments for PL!

How are you going with it so far? If it's your first year....hang in there! It does take a little while to get into the groove, but so worth it ;)

Have a wonderful week

WOW Susan, you are on a PL roll!!! These pages are awesome and so full of fun. Even the little pockets are so dang cute. I had a heck of time doing my PL 3 again, not sure I like cutting up all my photos and fitting in journaling. By the looks of yours you seem to have no problems.

How do you decide which ones to crop small?

LOVE LOVE the pocket, the overlay is adorable, the story about your son's brushing ( Sam does this too) just love all of this!!

I used an old Simple Story kit on mine this week, they are great!

Well done for keeping up although I dont know how you get it done so quickly. I am doing okay, still have weeks to catchup on for 2011 & 2012 but when I look at what I have done I realised that I have captured more memories in the past two years than in all the time I have been scrapbooking.
I am doing okay this year, just plodding along and taking it as it comes.
love me :-)
