Project Life | Weeks 40 & 41 (+ a freebie!)

I'm caught up on my album!  I'm not caught up on photographing it, but I'm caught up on the pages.  The long weekend was wonderful; I got in the zone on Friday and finally resurfaced sometime yesterday.  So, 2 weeks for today, and then next week I'll have 3 or 4 for you.

Week 40 Full Spread.

Week 40 Left Side.  After putting all the pictures in, I realized that this side features the boys 100%, so I made a little printable of a quote I saw on pinterest a while back (keep scrolling to grab the file!).  I printed it 3x4, but made the file 6x8 in case I ever wanted to print it larger.  Then I just used glue-dots to mount it on some seafoam paper.

Week 40 Right Side.  I had 2 groups of pictures I wanted to put on 4x6 pictures together, so I copied the look that Tracy Larsen rocks and made some templates of my own in Photoshop Elements.  The two printables are images that DeseretBook pinned (1, 2) regarding General Conference

Week 41 Full Spread.

Week 41 Left Side.  This spread was all about our road trip.  We didn't leave until Wednesday, but I pushed all our other pictures to previous or later weeks so that I had two full spreads to dedicate to our trip to Utah.  It was brutal to edit and not use every single picture I had, but that's been one of my goals this year, and I'm really happy with how it's turned out.  Again, I took a page from Tracy Larsen's album and tried to include more white space.  I included the picture of the front seat to illustrate that I wore my snuggie the whole drive.  Tyler's always burning up and I'm always freezing, so it was perfect.

Week 41 Right Side.  Again, lots of pictures.  I wanted to draw the drive, so I made the USA card in word, then printed it to pdf and opened it in photoshop elements.  Word art, then pdf, then png.    If anyone has a copy of Illustrator that's collecting dust, I'd be happy to take it off your hands.

Thanks for looking!  Stay tuned next week for the second half of our Utah vacation.  You can check out my other Project Life pages here.

  1. I think I need to print that freebie - because clearly, MY boys are the best in the world. :)
