Project Life

This week’s Project Life covers Week 2: January 7- 13th, 2013.

I had a blast creating this week’s Project Life.  I don’t know if it was because I was adding in the NEW Elle’s Studio products, incorporating the Seafoam Core Kit from Becky Higgins, or maybe it was the fresh start of 2013… regardless, it was so much fun to make!  (don’t you love week’s like that?)

A few interesting things to note:  I decided to incorporate my One Little Word for 2013 (“bold”) by using photo with a birthday candle and incorporating the candle in the spelling (this was also the week of my birthday, so the theme fit very well!)   It was a fun and different way to incorporate my goals for this year.

I decide this week I wanted to include more “found objects” in my spread.  I tend to lean more towards photography and journaling within my Project Life.  This is an area I don’t include all that often, and I am hoping to work on that this year.   I added the gift tag to my son’s birthday balloons,  packaging from our favorite oranges, an Einstein Bagels bag, and a birthday letter I received from my 8th grade Bible teacher (he write all the students he’s ever had on their birthdays every year– this is my 20th letter from him– is that amazing or what!?)
