I’ve had these photos printed, trimmed and in their pockets for a good three weeks now. For some reason, I just wasn’t feeling it. That would be the reason I skipped ahead and shared Week 33 last week.
And then I went and bought the Project Life Honey Core Kit. I always love it when I see it in use, especially in Kristina’s albums. The colors are bright and it just seems to coordinate with everyday photos well. So what do you know? I pulled it out last night and had this layout completed in under an hour. Everything on this spread is from the Honey Core Kit minus the black and white label stickers which are older than old and were actually in my donation pile to Camryn’s Kindergarten classroom when I decided the black and white would be the perfect compliment.
Two events were documented most this week, including our first trip to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. If you’re local, GO! It’s awesome. We’ve been twice now and still don’t think we’ve seen half of everything.
I love that my journaling card and the card I used to hold the large square photo in the lower left corner tie everything together perfectly.
See what I mean? That journaling card ties in the green from a piece of the museum map on the left and the blue from my photo on the right. LOVE.
Our first Indians game – well, for Andy and I – was also this week. We like to celebrate milestones with sporting events. 11th Anniversary gift? A baseball game. That’s how we roll.
That photo in the lower left hand corner? That’s Andy’s co-chief from residency who also happens to be at the Clinic this year, too. Leighton loves him and demanded she wear a dress when we met him for dinner.
Another great example of a two cards from the core kit pulling everything together. The background for the photo had numbers on it which I then added two number stickers to for the number of years we’ve been married. The journaling card points to the photo and then my “ticket” fit into the slot next door. Can I gripe for a minute that I hated not getting real tickets? Sure, printing them from home is convenient, but when given the option, I’ll always pick to have a real ticket mailed to me.
That does it for this week. Still running about two months behind of current, but I’m good with it.
