project life: week seven

I'm sharing week seven today, the week that included valentine's day!




I stamped 'week 7' on the title card because I'm finding I have to count back from the beginning to figure out what week I'm on too often. I think I'll start either stamping the week or using letter stickers so I'll know where I am more easily.


This is my third year doing project life. I love that I always know when my trees start budding in the spring. On the first day I notice leaves on my elm tree I take a photo and include it so I'll always know how long I have to wait for everything to start looking green again. The Mario Brothers shot is just an iphone pic of the tv screen while we were playing Saturday night.


I made sure I used the ten of hearts this week to go along with the heart cookies and the box of candy for Valentine's Day.


I used a stamp to create a label to contain a bit of journaling about Mason playing basketball.


I included a really old pic of me from 1982 since I spent some time scanning in some photos from the 80s. I found an iphone app called shoebox that makes it really easy. I may never use my scanner again!


Thanks to Mason's friend, I was able to include a pic of him and Mason while they were out. I saw it on instagram so I texted him and asked for the pic. It's great to be able to include parts of my boys' lives even when I'm not there!

  2. I love how you used a lot of red and hearts on the spread for this week. What a fun shot of your sun playing basketball when he doesn't have practice. That's wonderful you were able to get a picture from Mason's friend--it's a cool shot.
