Project Life 2013 | Weeks 1-3 + Freebies!

I'm breaking my 4-week trend, so everyone hold on to your hats!  This is also the first time I've been caught up on posting my Album!  Woohoo!

Week 1 Full Spread.

Week 1 Left Side.  I've decided to embrace a minimalist approach this year rather than apologize for it and wish I used more ephemera.  It's almost exclusively pictures and journaling.  Having said that, I actually did include a scoresheet from one of our games on New Years.  I seriously kicked some trash.
I made my weekly title circles this year because I don't have a punch big enough to use September Blue's this year.  I'm not sure I'm loving it, though, so that might change in the coming weeks. I saw a new years countdown card here on Theresa Marie, and I knew I had to copy it.  And I know it's a little late, but you're welcome to use it as well.  :)  Just click to open the full-res picture (below the album picture), then right click and save.  If you use it, I'd love to see!

Week 1 Right Side.  If you've been reading for awhile, you might remember that I included Manifestos in my album last year, but I kind of missed the boat on writing my own.  So I've been working on one for this year, and I included it in my album.  And if you'd like to borrow it to use or simply for inspiration, feel free!  Just click to open the full-res picture (below the album picture), then right click and save.  Again, if you use it, I'd love to see!
I also included a google maps screenshot of our road trip to Tampa.  It was for the cruise we took during week 2, but the drive was on Saturday, so I put it with this week. 

Week 2 Full Spread.

Week 2 Left Side.  Cruise week!  It's all pictures except for one 4x6 spot with a journaling summary and a 3x4 spot on the right side with our itinerary.  I thought about including an insert with more pictures, but I decided to make a minibook instead.  I haven't made one before, but I think it's going to be a fun project!  (Note: "Captain's Log" IS as nerdy as it sounds.  It's also apropos since we were on a ship.)

Week 2 Right Side.  See?  Nerdy.  We even won sci-fi trivia.  When I couldn't choose just one more picture to use in the last 4x6 slot, I decided to make a collage with all our selfies.  We both got pretty good at those selfies - no front camera.

Week 3 Full Spread.

Week 3 Left Side.  Mason's 15-month check-up was this week, so I wanted to include a growth chart.  I originally made the file to use for their baby albums (which I plan to start soon).  I got the original file here, but I converted it from a .pdf to a .png and cleaned up some of the extra info.  If you'd like, feel free to grab it!  Just click to open the full-res picture (below the album picture), then right click and save. On this page, I also included the "i love us" printable which I got here.

Week 3 Right Side.  More pictures of my cute boys.  I also snagged a cartoon a friend shared on facebook, so I don't have a source.  It really is like that when it snows down here.  Crazy.


Thanks for looking!  You can check out my other Project Life pages here.
