Hey, we’re basically halfway through the year! These are spreads from week 21 + 22 of this year. The first spread has pictures from our trip to the Little Grand Canyon in Georiga – post for that coming soon. So much fun! The second spread has pictures from when we visited the botanical gardens nearby where we live. I used seafoam core kit for both spreads, like I have been for most of this year. I did print off two extra things for my spreads. One was a map of the little grand canyon, and the other was a 4×6 card that I made in photoshop with a quote about memories. I used design A, design D and design H page protectors. They are quickly becoming my favorite page protectors…they make planning the spreads and printing photos easy because sizing is pretty uniform and layout is easy to remember if you don’t have your album right in front of you.
It never fails. Every time I get out my project life album, whether to work on it or to take pictures of it, Cooper plops down right beside it.
The picture below was taken a few nights ago when I was putting together a spread…Cooper decided to nap next to everything.
So, you will see Cooper in a lot of these pictures. I’ve given up trying to push him away, because anytime you touch Cooper, he thinks you’re trying to play with him and then he starts jumping and bouncing all around and before you know it, he’s running all over the apartment. So I opted just to have a calm puppy lying on the floor in some of my pictures. These spreads are from May – I’ve been trying to use my camera more, so I’ve been doing two (or more) spreads for each week. I mostly used the seafoam kit. If I didn’t use sea foam, I made something in Photoshop and used that instead. As for page protectors, I have been using design A & design D alot lately. The 8.5”x11” page protectors are ones I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago when they were having a sale.
As far as the pictures, just normal life. Now that we’re settled into the apartment, we’re enjoying the two ponds behind the complex and taking Cooper for lots of walks out there, we’re redoing our living room decor, we took a family pictures for mothers day postcards, i’ve been making new designs for Joy Inspiration, and Rob + I drew our own versions of a house portrait of our house at Fort Rucker.
The Project Life Creative Team put together a little video for y’all! In celebration of National Scrapbooking Day (which was last week – I know, I’m a little late on this one), the Members of the 2013 Project Life Creative Team share their favorite Project Life (scrapbook) pages, photo tips, and organizational ideas. And guess what, I’m in it! ;) It only took 10 outtakes to make my short little 15 second segment. I should put a video together of the outtakes.
Anyway, to see the official video, click the photo below.
It’s been a while since I posted my Project Life spreads. This isn’t because I haven’t done my spreads…I have actually been doing them faithfully every Sunday. I just haven’t been taking pictures of them and posting them. I wouldn’t say that I haven’t had time…it’s just that I would usually do the spreads in the evening, and then it would be too dark to take pictures, and then I would forget to take pictures the next day. And the vicious cycle continues.
But, now that means there is a ton of new pictures for you to look at. :)
I used the Seafoam Edition for all of these spreads. I kept my spreads simple: photos, core kit + journaling.

I don’t know what number week of the year this is for Project Life. I’m too lazy to look at the calendar and count. Regardless, I do know that this was the same week we moved into our apartment. So, there are several pictures of packing and tearing down. A few pictures of Cooper settling into his new home and a few other random ones.
