Project Life - Week of January 30 - February 5, 2012...

I've decided to quit counting which week it is of Project Life (as in "week 2, week 3, etc") because I already lost track (Ha). I just finished the spread for January 30 - February 5, 2012. I had a lot of fun with this one, but it took an enormous amount of time...

I am loving using all the different styles of page protectors! It's like a game figuring out how to fill all the little pockets!

Here's how it turned out...
It was a super busy, hectic week, but no big events to speak of. I used a couple of pieces from the cobalt kit this week, but everything else is from my stash.

Bottom left corner is my Project 12 page for January. I decided to keep them very simple, and to put them in my daily writing/chronicles journal. (Still working on a post that talks more about that journal process). I included an ATC that I made a long time ago (middle row - second from right). I never quite knew what to do with my ATCs, and I am ecstatic that they fit so nicely in these pockets! Yeayyy! The dog is a drawing I did in a 2006 journal. I was going through my old journals this weekend and found him. I had never posted him anywhere, so I thought he deserved a little place of his own on this week's spread.

Here's a closeup...


and here's a closeup of the right side...

I hope you are having fun with your project life (if you are doing one). This week I am going to try to do a little each day, so it's not such a big project at the end of the week.

Thanks for visiting and I will be back again soon!

Alway love looking at your project life pages(or any scrapbooking page of your to be honest), they are always ful of colours and little bits here and there to look at. This is my 4th year of doing project life and until this year I have always done week 1, week 2 etc this year I have gone with the dates like you have for this post and Im liking it alot better than the way I use to do it

This looks amazing, Michelle. So fun to look through each little bit. I can't believe you did that drawing. And is that your Mom? Love you are "not" saying week such and such...I think I will eventually have to accept that as well!

Michelle LaPoint Rydell said...

Yes, that's my mom Patricia. I have a pic of her there because in the journaling I talk about finishing up the court case. I love that picture of her.

Thanks so much everyone for your kind words!
