Ugh, week 5. This one was tough because I didn't have much to work with. I had started the insert of Billy's trip before the week was finished but in hindsight, I could have used one side for the trip and one side for the week. Oh well. I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out.
The left side. It was a stretch to fill the pockets.
A 'week in review' card is my go-to filler these days. Since I'm ussally putting the whole week together at 1 time, it's a good way to wrap up the little details that aren't pictured.
I altered a striped card from the digital Seafoam kit in Photoshop and typed out our grocery list for the week. The chevron pattern is a photo of something I drew. I just printed it out on cardstock. I might go back and color it in with markers.
Here's the front of the insert I made for Billy's weekend in Florida. He got home on Monday so I just decided to keep it with this week's pages. He sent me a ton of pictures and I am really thankful for that. I want to include more stuff about Billy in this year's album so that was helpful. :)
Here's the back side. More pictures of the ocean, some journaling and his plane ticket from the flight home to Chicago.
And the right side of the week. Lots of filler stuff. I copied and pasted the text from this post onto another one of the Seafoam digital papers (4x6" in the top right).
I bought that PB & J chocolate bar not becuase I love peanut butter and jelly, but for the packaging. I love Trader Joe's.
I am glad this week is done and that I finished it. Having almost no photos to work with forced me to get creative with my pockets. It also helped me focus on taking a ton of pictures the following week. I like this project because I get a fresh start every seven days.
