Project Life

This week’s Project Life features the week of November 5- November 11.

It was a full week with the Election, a book release, a wedding, discovering a big hole in a little girls blankie, and activities at school– yes it was a full week!

I included an email from my dad as an insert on the right side.  His perspective in life is such an encouragement to me and what he wrote was something I wanted to include in my album.  (Just a note: I contemplated blurring out pieces of this spread that represented any political views I might have, but I also deeply value transparency and allowing this album to represent me and my life.  I completely respect opposing political views and  feel blessed to be able to live in a country where I can document my thoughts and opinions. 🙂 
The election provided many opportunities to include bits and pieces in my album.  I included my voting sticker, a VIP pass for the victory party for the Indiana governor, and some photos and thoughts from the day.

On the back side of the insert I included a panoramic photo taken with a free iPhone app : DMD Panoramic.  It’s pretty neat app for those of us who do not have an iPhone 5.  (sniff, sniff:).
I printed the photo as an 8×12 from and trimmed the photo to just show the print.   

On the right side of the page I included more bit’s and pieces — and award my son received at school, a part of the wedding invitation, and a gift card that I spent that week.

    Because of this I don’t think I will blur that spread if I can ever get it up. LOL! I try to keep politics off my personal blog but I think a little is never a bad thing. Thanks for this post!
