week 21 title card
title card
2013, will you please slow down?

week 21a
1st spread
Instead of making an insert for my birthday festivities on that Sunday, I made an entire spread. 

week 21b
left side, 1st spread
Using a digital template allowed me to include all the photos that I wanted to without adding too much bulk. I also caved and bought the Blush core edition at Hobby Lobby (the cards from that kit are the "enjoy today" and green polka dot) - I love this kit because of the yummy colors (pink is at its core, so what's not to love!).  The brown week card is from a Studio Calico grab bag and the "live the life you love, love the life you live" is from the Jade edition (I don't have the full Jade kit, just bought a set of cards from someone on FB).

week 21c 
right side, 1st spread
Full sized photos on this side so the eyes have a place to rest. The self-adhesive tabs are from Office Depot and help further separate the non-12x12 page protectors. Speech bubble card from Studio Calico.

week 21d
2nd spread
The rest of the week.

week 21e
2nd spread, with insert
I wanted to keep all the birthday cards I received, but they were adding way too much bulk to the album, so I picked out my favorites. The biggest problem with adding inserts is that the middle of the album gets fat quick! Really trying to keep only 2 albums for the year so gotta use more photo collages :)

week 21f
left side, 2nd spread
I am a lucky girl; my birthday festivities continued on through the week. I am trying to include both handwritten and computer journaling in the pages, even though my handwriting is barely legible. Still working on that! The pink speech bubble card is from Blush. Both side of the cards from this kit are so stinking cute that I am going to try to use them which then maximized product as well as decreases some bulk.

week 21g
right side, 2nd spread
One notable event from that week - Daft Punk released their new album and I love it! Get Lucky is the first single that is actually getting radio time, but the other songs on the album are amazing as well. The "Lucky" card is from Studio Calico, the other 2 journal cards is from the Turquoise core kit, which I used primarily in last years album, although I still have a ton left.

I have been using lots of digital elements, especially brushes and templates for this album. Love that they can be used over and over again, customized to any color and take up much less physical space.

Great pages! The Birthday spread looks fun! Also like the white borders around a lot of your photos. Gives a very clean look :)

Wow, your title card is fantastic! What a great idea. Your pages look really fun and clean and colorful, and I like your handwriting! It looks spiky and artistic, and I think it adds a lot to your pages. :)
