Hello Project Lifers, I'm linking up this month with Jessica at The Mom Creative, as usual. March is my birthday month and we also had some special activities so it takes up several spreads in the album this year. There is actually another full spread and four more full 12X12 traditionally scrapped pages inserted within the month as well, but I'll keep those private for now as some parts are completely done yet.
The first spread includes the very end of February on the left, but since I was at a shamrock themed party the pictures went well with a green/rainbow theme. The right is about a Grandmas & Granddaughters outing to see the play Charlotte's Web. My mom and her friend both have granddaughters that are the same age and they got together to take them both out to the show and lunch. I added additional journaling after photographing. The program & tickets from the show are in the insert that is just a regular page protector cut down and sealed with washi tape.
On this spread the left side is about Fat Tuesday, which in MI is often called Paczki Day. My parents timed coming out for a visit on that day so they could enjoy some of the delicious paczki's our downtown bakery makes. On the right is a page with photos from three different birthday celebration dinners. The collection used is by WRMK's Albums Made Easy: Hip, Hip, Hooray.
Turn the page and here are photos from my actual birthday on the 13th. I got the most mileage out of my cards by using both sides out of the top two 4X6 cards and the 3X4 used in the middle row. Next to this is an insert, this side has some pictures of the fun my son had playing inside of an empty shipping box.
The back of the insert and the right side of the spread is about my daughter on Saturday the 15th. She had a swimming pool birthday party in the morning and in the afternoon we went shopping for her First Communion dress. The story is told on the right and extra photos are in the insert.
On the next spread are the last set of birthday photos, this time of the celebration with my family. One of my gifts was a Strawberry Core Kit and I was so excited to get my hands on it, I put it to use immediately and on these pages.
The right side is the rest of the Week of March 16-22. Brad took off for Calgary on Monday for work so the kids and I were home alone. There was an important preschool sign up meeting that week so my Mom came out to spend the night so I could attend.
The end of March was a little more typical in terms of Project Life documentation. We're back to a spread with one insert, not shown. It has more iPhone pictures than usual for me, I am enjoying having the ability to capture moments on the go without having to bring along my big Canon.
