project life: weeks 1 thru 3

so, you may (or may not) remember that i decided to tackle project life this year. despite that i'm posting these layouts a few weeks late, i've actually done a pretty decent job of keeping up to date with this. and i'm truly loving it! 

i don't know if i will post all of my completed layouts here on the blog, but i really enjoy inspiration and getting ideas from others, so i thought i'd pay it forward, so to speak. (photo quality is horrible. my only excuse is laziness.)

instead of walking you through each layout bit-by-bit, i'm just including some photographs and then listing out information that might be helpful. 

:: three weeks of project life ::























Photos I included
:: special events
:: all of us in the car
:: restaurant

:: friends hanging out in our home
:: pieces of home d├ęcor
:: self-portraits

Stuff I included

:: clothing tag

:: print out from doctor’s office

Design notes
:: everything seen is from the original project 365 kit (weekday stickers, overlay, "week of" cards, journaling cards, tri-fold journaling cards)
:: for photos that don’t really have much of a story, i just jotted notes with a black sharpie directly onto the picture.
:: in a lot of cases, i printed two vertical photos side-by-side on a 4x6 canvas.
:: i used my (new to me) vintage typewriter to do a week in review card and a couple of labels. the ribbon needs to be replaced but i foresee using this a lot in the future.
:: i like using small labels to just add a quick line to a photo

reminder: i am using leftover product from becky's very first project 365 kit (no longer available).
