Week 6! Much better than the last. I took a bunch of pictures and had a much easier time filling the pockets.
Here's the left side. Lots of color, strawberries and crafts this week.
When I was looking through my 2012 album, I realized that I enjoy reading our random, funny stories more than the typical run down of the week. So instead of a 'week in review' I just wrote 2 dorky stories about what we do with ourselves. Just wanted to change it up.
This was an idea that I had in my head that I was happily able to translate onto paper... I love when that happens. I used a piece of very light chevron patterned paper, cut out a picture of my green smoothie (I'm still on a kick), and wrote the ingredients around the picture. Then, I used watercolors to fill in each letter. The paper is a little warped from the water but you can't tell when it's in the pocket.
And the right side. I used a lot of the space to document my half marathon training that started this week. For the 'Fancy Sandwich' card, I used an exacto knife to pop that label shape out and stuck the photo and some washi tape underneath.
I got some new running shoes this week! Yay! I've gone far too long without getting new running shoes. I had to be sure to get a bright color so they look good in all my feet pictures. ;)
The week card is from Elle's Studio. It normally says 'this week' at the top but I covered it up with a green strip of cardstock to use the journaling card for a different purpose. The vellum oval on the feet photo was a speech bubble but I just cut off the tail.
Billy's boss wrote him a note which I thought was super nice so I snatched it from him. It wasn't quite 4x6" so I stuck it to a plain grid card. I didn't want to cover up any of the note so I just wrote a little blurb on the back of the card.
And that's that. I really like this week. I think it might be my favorite one!
