2013PL : week one

Week 1 - January 1-5. 


For this first album, I'll be using 2 slots for the weekly date - the (free!) weekly circle from September Blue. Super happy that she's already colored the circles to coordinate with Seafoam. I'm also using a calendar card from Paislee Press. I recolored the digital stripes to match the week circle, and highlighted the week on the calendar. 


I'm really happy with how simple & calm this turned out. A few highlights - birthday girls should always drink wine from a chicken, lyrics that I've had on repeat, and this vintage-y calendar postcard that I picked up at Ikea at least a year ago. The "sentiment" is one of my personal truths. 


Two inserts (so far) this week. This awesome New Year's Subway Art is a free download from eighteen25...I just resized to 6x6. It's backed with patterned paper. I'm opting NOT to journal about New Year's. Let's just say that it was less than spectacular. 


The next insert is just a page protector with birthday cards slipped in. I added a paper clip to the top in hopes of keeping them IN. So far, so good.

A project life fact - photos can be totally blurry and STILL be included in your album. Admittedly, the quality of that top photo might have something to do with the # of bottles of wine in the photo below it. Ahem. 


Washi tape makes an excellent background for clear stickers! 

This week is super light on journaling - and I'm okay with that. I don't approach PL as a diary. I think that photos are pretty good storytellers. :)
