I have been remiss about posting PL layouts, but as of yesterday, I am caught with with 2013! Go me!

week 37 01
full spread
This was the week that everyone and their mother (well, maybe not everyone, but anyone interested in reading this post!) participated in Ali Edwards' Week in the Life. I have a separate 8.5x11 album that houses the past 2 years, but this year, I just wasn't feeling it so I just used photo collages in Project Life instead.

To add continuity to the pages, I used striped filler cards from different core kits. Definitely love the way this looks.

Ali's digital brushes came in handy to label the photos and the rest of the page was kept pretty simple.

week 37 03

I did bust out the big camera everyday, which is something I also plan on doing in December. Said this before and I'm sure I'll say it again: the iPhone is great for convenience and ease of taking photos but nothing beats the quality of the good dSLR pic.

week 38 01
full spread, no insert
This was a fun week, full of food, family and friends, just the way we like it!
Lots of the Blush edition and digital templates were used on this spread.

Looks like I've been focusing on taking people photos these days instead of things/details photos. But aren't people the reason we do this memory keeping for?

We drove up to Dallas this weekend with some friends to see Depeche Mode!

Our friend got us pretty good seats - the show was amazing. Dave Gahan sounded great and while they played a lot of new songs that we didn't know, they sang tons of old favorites as well.

One of our favorite parts about our mini vacation was reconnecting with old friends.

Two of said old friends have been busy making minis! Z is such a doll and I can't get over how much hair he has (unlike his daddy). Our friends make such beautiful people :)!

If you made it to the end, thank you! How are you doing with your PL?
Got more to come soon!
