This past Saturday was National Scrapbook Day. I took the opportunity to really get some work done on finishing Project Life 2013. Most of these spreads had the photos for the week, I just didn't get it all pulled together. In total, I got four spreads done. Three for 2013, (two below and one to come later) and one for 2012. The one for 2012 is the week between our wedding and honeymoon and can be found in this post.
Week 22: May 27 - June 2
As mentioned before, I was using all the pocket page designs offered in one of the Big Variety Packs from the Becky Higgins Amazon storefront. This week's spread has Designs C and D pages.
Week 25: June 17 - 23
Apologies in advanced. These photos did not turn out so great but I am going with it. This week includes the two 12x12 pages (Designs F and A), as well as a 6x12 insert page. The week also focused primarily on one fire assignment for Berkeley. I really loved this approach and it was something that sparked the idea of events based Project Life documentation for 2014.
Whole layout spread with the insert flipped over the left hand side. On the right hand side, I added in some journaling about how I was doing during Berkeley's away time with glimpses of how I pass the time and what I eat. For the whole spread, I repeated the same approach to journaling. Overall, this spread is one of the most straight forward. Just photos and journaling.The original photo was turned about 90* clockwise but I couldn't make a photo in that direction work in this layout. To help show the true direction on the fire, I added a star at the ignition point and added a compass of sorts. Other than that, I really just wanted to focus on the role fires play in our daily life together not just mine or his. Although the photos are lousy, this is one of my favorite spreads from 2013.
