One of the things I love about this project is the opportunity to include the voices of other people who are important to me. This week I've included a couple of text messages from Chris and the kids + a note Anna wrote to Aaron + some math practice Anna did while we were at a restaurant. I am intentionally on the lookout for those kinds of micro-stories to include in my weeks.
Here's a closer look at Week Seven:
In terms of design this week one of the things I did after I had all my photos and most of the 3x4 cards/stories in place I used circle journal stickers from Freckled Fawn on top of three photos. It's a way to link the whole spread together + get more words on the page.
As many of you have heard me say recently in the Storytelling With Project Life® workshop, I also really want to make sure I'm including "stuff of life" in this project. This week I cut up part of some Shopkins packaging and added it to a pocket.
To include the text message from Chris I did a screenshot on my computer (you can do it on your phone too) and then I added the "notes" card from the Everyday core kit to the top (cut in half and added to the top and the bottom).
The "Wednesday" card is from the Hello Today Journal Card Set.
The "ampersand" card was included with the Black & White Story Kit™ - I simply wrote "work" over and over again because that's a lot of what was happening.
The "movies" red puffy stickers are from the SC Savannah Scrapbook Kit.
