Project Life

Welcome to another week of Project Life here at Elle’s Studio!  This week’s Project Life focuses on the week of November 7-13th.

This was a big week in our household– my whole family (minus the kids) traveled to New Orleans for my cousins wedding. It was so much fun to spend time with the extended family and document some of our stories in Project Life. 

My challenge this week was to tell both the stories at home (where my kids were with their aunt) and in New Orleans (where my husband and I were with the family).

Fortunately, my sister in law took photos of the kids while she was babysitting, and also my friend took photos at our daughters ballet class.  They both were happy to email me the photos to include in my album.  Don’t be afraid to ask other people to send you photos– especially if they are photos that are important to you!   Other items I included to documents the kids part of the week at home was art work from school and a Snicker’s wrapper from the Halloween candy stash!   Halloween candy was a big part of the week (mostly me constantly telling them when it’s okay to eat it!)

I had plenty of photos and found items from our New Orleans road trip, that I decided to include an insert from We R Memory keepers to hold my iPhone/Postal Pics photos.  This particular page protector is a 9 4×4 inch photo sleeve protector that fits a 12×12 album.  I simply trimmed the page protector down to four 4×4 photos (fits 8 total) only because I like to see the whole week in one spread.

I used many Elle’s Studio Lil’Snippets throughout my layout for my journaling spots.  I also love the November 11/11 4×6 Journaling Card— it was perfect for this 11.11.11 week!
