Here's my project life spread for week 29, July 15-21. A pretty simple "fill the pockets from pictures from those dates" week.
During this week, I attended Alt SF with my friend April. (You can see the little bit of mail fodder there tucked in too. ) My little brother lives in San Fransisco, so it was super fun to see him and I am very glad I have a picture in here that I'll see, instead of only in my computer files.
That mail fodder I mentioned was actually the wrapping on a tube that Alt SF sent, I just peeled it off. (While I was doing it, I was reminded of those crescent rolls I used to have when growing up...I was always so afraid of that pop when you unpeeled it just enough!)
The rest of the week was all about getting ready to head to Spain. I took the easiest route possible and wrote directly on photos or on the journal cards, with limited embellishments. I am liking more plain. I do wish I had used a bolder black pen, but not enough to re-do anything- progress not perfection all the way now!
It's funny, the project lifes that I like online tend to be less colorful and more simple, timeless, but yet when I sit down with my photos and pick any embellishments to go with it, I end up having a colorful spread. It's just an interesting design note for me to mull over...what I like vs. what is my real life. Of course, there is no right or wrong! I'm still really glad I decided to do this project this year, and next PL post I'll show you how I decided to include our trip to Spain in this format, since I also have a travel journal for the trip.
