Keeping up with Project life this week.
While it gives me immense joy and happiness to get each and every week documented, it takes a good amount of time every week to stay on track. Its a commitment.
With the weather getting sunnier, i can already see that i am not going to be able do this every week. I dont want to aim too high and fall short. so i am thinking biweekly maybe?
I kind of wish i had a Canon SELPHY , and that way i could print photos as and when i took them. I spend a good chunk of time each week collecting photos from all of our devices…
I love my big Canon printer.
But today, I hit print only to realize I need more ink. Out of the 8 cartridges my printer uses I have 7 replacements ready on hand. But it ran out of, you guessed it, the one ink cartridge I don’t have. Photo magenta.
I have a Costco run coming up this week, so I am just going to upload and print them there for this week.
But here is the digi layout all ready to be printed…
The left hand side page is a 4 by 4 instagram page protector. The right hand side is a 4 by 6 horizontal page.
The Love this life card on the left is by Kensie Kate (pinned here). She has an AMAZING set of freebies that go along with this one. Have you ever bumped into a new persons pinterest board and thought ” I could totally be friends with her?” Kensie’s pinterest boards are so much fun!
The “I love you every single day” is something I doodled/handwrote this morning.
And you can get that one in this weeks freebie…

Things that I reached for for this spread: Photos. Every single photo I took. And my new favorite font Raleway.
Things I did differently this week: I told a whole story. Instead of just adding a line at each photo, I focussed more on the journaling.
Things I loved on this spread: This weeks spread is inspired by something that caught my eye in a magazine. After last weeks busy page, I wanted a good amount of white space in this weeks layout and I love that I got to write down so many of my thoughts.
Things that worked for me on this spread: Getting three or four photos in one 4 by 6 pocket. I usually nix many photos each week, but this week I just made such photos tiny in size.
Hope you guys enjoy this one!
Thanks for stopping by today!

I use this paper by Canon- which is simply amazing!!! It is a matte paper and has the look and feel of cardstock. This printer/paper combo is the main reason Project Life is working for me this year. I am also using this new corner rounder by Fiskars.
My album and page protectors, I got at Target and are the We R memory keepers brand. I am trying to maintain a consistant journaling font this time, and am using Helvetica Neue. I do all my digital processing in Adobe Photoshop Cs5.
