So, I'll be honest - this one was tough. When I sat down to work on it this weekend I hated everything. I didn't feel like the colors were working, I was uninspired by the stories, and I hardly had any photos. Then I realized - well, this is life. Real Life was pretty stressful last week, so OF COURSE Project Life wasn't going to be a walk in the park. I pushed through, and here's what I came up with -
full week, sans inserts.
left side. some details -
What to do with poorly lit, hastily snapped photos? Make them small & black-and-white!
What to do when you don't want to write a diatribe about a stressful week? Remind yourself to carry on w/a simple Becky Higgins card (with some CK Ali's Hand thrown in).
What to do when you read on a Nook, so you don't have an actual book to photograph? Print the cover from Google, then adhere with pop-dots.
What to do when your daughter sends you a super cute email? Print it onto cardstock, add a logo (google), a super cute Amy Tangerine heart, and some random rub-ons.
insert #1 - Take Twelve.
Insert #2 - sweet Valentine's from my Mom, Barb, and Angie.
Insert #3 (not pictured) - the Wellness Survey results from a company-sponsored online survey. Just printed & shoved into an 8.5x11 page protector.

Angie or Barb had the brilliant idea last week to use postcards when traveling. I was in Ohio (again) last week, so I just picked up a postcard @ the airport, then added a journaling card. Since this is work related, I may end up switching out that card for one from the new October Afternoon 9to5 line when it's available.
I set my phone down on the nightstand & realized that the colors were very "me" - this card doesn't "match" anything else this week, but I like it just the same!
When in need - use google images! (oh, and Becky Higgin's Turquoise digi embellishments)
And....week seven is a wrap! If you're a Project Life junkie (like me), do come back tomorrow. I'm going to write a bit about my "philosophy" & process with PL. I promise that I won't be all preachy. I've gotten a few email comments/questions that I want to address.
ps. this post was written quickly with little coffee. please excuse any typos, run on sentences, or general nonsense.
