project life : week fourteen

project life : week thirteen

Phew! I finished weeks 13 & 14 this weekend (w14 will post later today)... W13fullweek 13 full sans insert - it's funny, for such an action-packed week, this isn't a very vibrant spread!  W13leftweek 13 left side - lead up to travel - yummy olive oil, a hot stone massage, physical therapy, & mad men. then off to OK!  W13insert1After a TON of pondering about how to capture the trip to OK/TX, I decided to keep it simple (that's ALWAYS the best answer for me) - so an insert chock-full of family photos. (uhm, how adorable is my Grandpa??) W13insert2More family photos on the back side of the insert. I'll likely go back & label/caption these - just in case I can't remember who people are when I'm old & senile.  W13rightweek 13 right side - hanging out with friends (so glad that Angie was in town from Chicago, and that Amy came up from Dallas), a shot of my brother's unique house, Austin chilling on the porch, and my cheery limeade indulgence. You'll also note this cool addition:  W13qrcodeLindsay posted an awesome tutorial for creating QR codes. This one links to the video of surprising my parents. The definition at the bottom is from the Turquoise Edition elements kit.

Lesson learned for me with this week (and week 14) - I don't want to create albums w/in albums by detailing ever.single.moment of special events. I'll likely do a photo book for this trip, including many more "ordinary" photos & stories. Not everything has to go into project life.
