project life | week 8

Totally addicted to this project. With all the inspiration around the internet and instagram, I love it more every week!

Last week's full spread also included on little insert.

I love writing little stories from the week.

We received a birth announcement of a dear friend's 2nd little girl. I use to keep all my cards, etc with the plan of "doing something" with them later, only to never do that something. Now I have a place to store and display them immediately!

The card was about 5x5 so I used a 6x6 page protector. Since I don't have a sewing machine I improvised and stapled the card directly to the protector so it looks a bit like it's floating in the book and I could add some confetti (confetti use inspired by gluestick girl!

Last week the Nikon was used to take DD's 11 month photos. But generally my photos have been snapped with my iPhone and since they are being printed so small, I am loving the quality. But I also love the effect of an enlarged photo across the page, which was totally inspired by KP.

As corny as it sounds, this project has really made me realize that the little moments in our life are worth celebrating. And 10 years from now we are going to love to see what we did everyday, because I am sure things will change! Blogging is similar; wouldn't  you love to have a daily reminder of what you wore 10 years ago?

What a super cool idea! I love the confetti "floating" idea, it's very three dimensional. Your photobooks always look like a "search-n-find" and I bet it's incredible to leaf back through them and dig through all the stories.
