Project Life: Week 16

I previously used Design F to show several pictures from one event but not for a several days.  It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be, filling out all those little slots!  I even ended up with extra bits I couldn't work in.  Having so many options worked out well this week because I could use it for Sunday-Thursday and then devote the entire second page for a friend's daughter's First Communion on Saturday.
I used mini collages to show our baby proofing efforts, putting up gates and getting the five year old a real desk to contain all her supplies.  Right Now image, pink paper, and yellow paper all from Crystal Wilkerson, who if you come by often you know, shows up almost weekly on my supply list!  The green paper is the reverse side of the Jillibean Soup cards I used last week.  It was too cute to cover up!  I also used another one of those cards, Spring Memories to describe the photo and menu next to it.
The first insert is devoted to the biggest school fund raiser of the year, the Silent Auction held on Friday.  I was involved with the planning, co-chairing the student's art display.  Lots of time spent at the school putting up felt, stapling programs, and hanging art all before the actual event.  The event pictures are collaged into a 5X7 and then right below is another 5X7 with the art wall.  I journaled on vellum and attached it over the photo so you can read the printing and get a glimpse of what's below.  Also included in the insert is the actual program, which as so thick I had to open it up.  You can see part of it, in the picture below.
The second insert is for the memorabilia I've saved from the First Communion, the invitations and church program both are in a 5X7 insert I bought at Staples.  I was bummed when the holes didn't quite line up with my binder but decided to selvage the situation by enlarging one hole with my Crop-a-Dile and then adding a hole reinforcer to make the protector fit. 
For the second half, I was excited to use Design D for the first time!  I liked using the little spaces for photos, it was nice to have room for detail photos from the event.  I used purple because that's the color G picked for her cake.

There we go, another week of memories already done!  How is your Project Life going?  Linking up to The Mom Creative.
