Project Life: Week 1

This week was a test! It was a boring week ~ school, home. Repeat. And then my hubby worked overtime over the weekend. BORING. But..... I PASSED THE TEST! I still enjoyed documenting week one, even having to narrow down the everyday pics I did take :) I loved including pics that normally wouldn't get scrapped. I used up a lot (who are we kidding, very little haha) of my stash -- but I did use 3 different collections and a few embellishments that might otherwise not been used together. To sum up, it was a boring week - but I loved it! Test passed.

I mainly used a combination of DCWV's new "Arctic Wishes" stack, Echo Park's older "Wintertime" and newer "Winter Wishes" collections. I love the blues, purples, and silvers.


We have a calendar white board on our fridge. When we had friends over this past weekend, my bestie wrote in a message for New Year's Day (the last day of Christmas break for us). LOL! This is why I love Project Life.. I wouldn't otherwise have scrapped this treasure.


I can't make any promises that you won't see one of these adorable pics every week -- my hubby and puppy passed out in their favorite chair. So sweet.


Ah, housework. You're lucky it was a slow week! lol! I love our new Dyson vacuum though... and I love journaling directly on the photo! I also included a screenshot of a text with my brother :)


I'm going to enjoy including pics from school in my Project Life album as well. This week we are studying polar bears in science. My first graders were addicted to watching them via the San Diego Zoo webcam. Technology can be so amazing!! You have to check them out :)


Lastly, another pic of my two loves:


No pics of me this week -- but I'm going to try to fix that next week :) Thanks for following along this far!! Have a great week!

I read all about Project Life since I asked about it in your earlier post. Looks interesting and you have certainly made your first week memorable and fun! And isn't that the point?! Love your photos of pug and hubby. I can relate as I have many photos of hubs and kitties! Looking forward to seeing what the next 51 weeks bring. Great job!
