Project Life week 14, April 1- April 7. Yes, I am very very behind. Not just in posting them here, in actually doing the spreads. Getting this one done felt like a big win for me. I am determined to do a week for each week of the year. Of course, it can be done any way, that's just how I decided to do it.
This spread was hard for me for a few reasons: 1. Too much time had passed since the week happened. 2. My printer died and I had to get a new one and get up to speed on it. 3. There were 2 extra inserts; one, my going away, and one my daughter attending a wedding and 4. I went away- being away from home always puts me behind in everything it seems. For all those reasons, I was having a hard time starting again.
So I forced it. I used embellishments to fill in where I couldn't remember the stories I wanted to document. And I'm totally fine with this week now that it's done. I remember that it really is about the year in whole.
I found that little blue heart (velvet flower petal) above on the floor when I was putting the spread together and although it has nothing to do with April1-7, I liked how it fit so used it. An example of leaning on embellishements to fill in the week.

Here's the front side of the first insert and some closeups of the embellishments:
The second insert was a photo of a photo booth pic my daughter took at a wedding on the front:
The back side of this insert has another photo booth photo, a text to me when she was heading out the door to the wedding, and phone photos from the wedding:
At the end of the week my daughter ran in her first 1/2 marathon.(!!!) How funny are her snapchats to me during the race? Love that she took them and sent them to me.
The three cards above were all hand made. The United States was a print of a google search for "United States map free clip art" which I then stitched my route taken.
So happy that I got this week 14 done, 15 should be easier, because it was less full of activities for the family, and because I'm back on the proverbial horse.
We are currently in the middle of week 21, in case you're counting. :)
No pressure Pam.
