Well after a week of being sick and taking care of 2 other sick family members I feel pretty good about getting back to the swing of things. We had a horrible cold that sucked the life out of us. Literally, didn't feel like moving. I, of course, had a major deadline at work and was forced to go into the office 3 days that week (normally, I work from home) with Ms. B in tow. I feel good that I made it it through but man did my house and organization fall apart.
So, here I am finally with week 6. I will post week 7 tomorrow. Can't believe we've been doing this for 7 weeks already. WOW!
This is the 2 page spread. I included an 8.5 x 11 sleeve of the People cover and article on Whitney. I also attached on the back side my feelings of her death and favorite Whitney song.
This is the 2 page spread with the Whitney sleeve turned. You can see my little note at the bottom. I used an Elles Studio tag for this.
This is the left side. I included a coloring sheet Bella brought home. Instead of including the entire sheet I cut it down to fit in the regurlar 4x6 and then trimmed her name out and put it in the opposite sleeve. This is the first time I noticed her writing on a sheet. I also downloaded from the internet book covers from the books Autumn and I are reading and then put them on a 4x6 photo using Adobe. Ali has a great tutorial on her website on how to do this. It's pretty simple.
The right side includes some photos of Valentines goodies the kids and I made. I also had a story to tell that wouldn't fit onto a small journaling card. I did use the folded card but instead of folding it and putting it in a small pocket, I opened it flat and wrote my journaling on front/back and then put it in a 4x6 pocket opposite of the picture that went along with the story.
I didn't have tons of photos this week but was still able to capture pieces of our life.
I love that Autumn is so willing to grab the camera and take photos. She took this one of Chuck and I before we were headed out to a charity function. And on top of that, she was quick to remind me that I could use it for a project that I'm working on where I need photos of her dad and I (theres not a lot since the kiddos). I think I have her trained well.
I'll be back tomorrow with week 7. Thanks for stopping by.
