Hi there! I am back with a Project Life update post today. As I did last time, I will show you a few spreads at once.
Week 22: This was the last week in May. I have made an effort in documenting my daughters last weeks in 9th grade. In Sweden 9th grade is the last school year before the kids choose a high school of their choice. It´s a big step. So, here proom dress came and I took photos of her class sweatshirt.
I also added a photo of me and my fiancé on International MS-day.
We celebrate Mother´s day on the last Sunday of May in Sweden and I got a wonderful cake and felt celebrated :)
Week 23: For some reason I hadn´t photographed thsi week´s spread. I´ll make sure to add it in later!
Week 24: This was the last week before summer vacation for me. My mom came to visit and we celebrated the graduation of my daughter. I added in a big journaling card by Big City Quiet to add stories from her last week at school. This is the blank card, there are several others with titles like currently, everyday life etc. Adding in 6x4" cards to journal on is my new favorite!
To the back of the journaling card insert, I added photos of her and her friends from that week.
I got a pretty rose from a few kids at work with a note, so I took a photo of it and added the note to the back of it. Washi tape on the top and it became a flip photo.
Week 25: First week of vacation! I added fun and happy stuff from the week.
To be able to add a few more photos I added that Currently card I got in a Studio Calico PL kit. You can see how I added a strip of washi tape to the edge of it to make it a flip card. I love how these types of addings bring so much dimension to a spread!
For the weekend, I opted to make 2 3x4" photo collages. Such a fun and easy way to add many photos. I added journaling to a tag I made to tuck behind the photo.
Week 26: For this week I worked with the moodboard from the Swedish PL blog I write for.
My daughter went to a One Direction concert and send several photos, and I made a 4x4" insert even before she came home :)
We went on a roadtrip to friends on Saturday and I added a fold out map of the city we visited.
And on the back of the map I just trimmed patterned paper and added to it.
A big photo hids journaling and many more photos of our first days.
Week 27: The first part of the week we were still on vacation and the photos are from there. I also added in a fun text message from my daughter to the back of...
...this photo. I cut a bigger photo in half, punched holes and added it right in there.
And on the back of the second part of the photo, I added the text about my daughter getting in to the high school of her choice!
And the second page of the spread holds photos that represent how fun it was to come home again! I printed an Ali E digital brush on plastic and added that in one of the pockets. I am going to keep that clear for next week´s spread also. Photo collages and a watercolor tag to hold the journaling.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest spreads!
