Project Life - Week 8

A few observations first. One- My weeks are slow in the beginning and are packed from Thursday through Sunday. I need to balance this out more. Two- I used the Cobalt Core Edition this week and I like it, but I prefer the Clementine Core Edition. Three- We ate a lot of Fast Food this week or we went out to eat. We need to get back in control and get back to home cooked meals.

I added an extra page protector Design F, from the Big Variety Pack and cut one row off the end to make it smaller than the Original page protectors and that was all the photo's I have. I liked how it turned out and will be doing this again.

This is my full spread:

  Left Side:

Front of Insert:

For the background in the pockets I used paper from my stash and cut to fit and then put the pictures on top. I like to do this to use up my ever growing stash. The letters are old Cosmo Cricket. I printed out from the menu what everything that we ate was. This was one of our best date nights that we have had in a while. We went to our Town Center and ate dinner, then went to another place for coffee and dessert and then off to the Comedy Club for some laughter.
(Sorry for the glare)
 Here is the right side:

A few things to note is that my three children are very different when it comes to ordering food. My oldest will heap on all the toppings as you can see in this picture of her list of things she wanted on her burrito. My son is very picky with what her eats and will opt for popcorn or bologna and cheese if he doesn't like what we are eating. The youngest will pick a a great thing to eat and strip it down to just the basics. None of them just order straight from the menu like my husband and I do. That is why I love Project Life, I can capture all of this so easily.

I used a few new supplies this week that I made myself. I made the Saturday tab that is on my insert and I used my Studio Calico Stamps on a label sheet that I first ran through my printer and printed a graph background onto them. I also ran some cardstock through with the lined background and cut them to fit into the 3x4 pockets. I will be putting a few kits up for sale here on the blog for next weeks update. I will also be listing some of my supplies that I am purging at this moment, so check back.

I like what you did with the design F protector. And so fun that you were able to capture the details about your kids and how they order food!

Have a great week!

I think what/how we eat says a lot about our personality. I think similar thoughts when I look at how differently my three kids approach food. I hadn't thought about documenting that in PL. Great idea!
