Project Life® 2018 | Week Thirteen

This is the sixth post in a series where I'm sharing six  Project Life® spreads + a video overview I put together last week using simple design formula ideas. 

You can see an overview video of this spread along with five others using this concept here

Here's a look at Week Thirteen:

This was our Spring Break week (no kids for us here this year - we have them every other year) and the week that Simon went to SeaBase in Florida for a sailing trip with other Boy Scouts from his troop. It was an awesome independent adventure for him. We were nervous and excited and loved that he had the chance to do this. We also loved that his two adult chaperones texted us with updates throughout the trip that were fantastic. I copied and pasted those texts onto a 6x8 canvas and placed it in a 6x8 page protector. 

SIMPLE DESIGN FORMULA

For this spread I used the tag notepad from the Summer/Everyday Life Notepad Bundle + yellow ribbon + a Tiny Attacher + a date stamp as my repetitive elements. 

In addition I also added some clear/white plastic words that were an Add On for a past Story Kit™

Sometimes we might think that our documentation needs to be super in-depth or all-incompassing and so we stall - not ready to tackle that task. It was such a good reminder to me as I worked on these spreads last week how it can be so simple and still absolutely tell a story about a slice of our lives. 

There is beauty in simplicity and repetition. Top quote card from a past Story Kit™

The bulk of the journaling this week comes from Tony + Doug who were the adults on Simon's Boy Scout sailing trip in Florida. The Spring Break chipboard piece on the top is from the March Stories By The Month™ kit

Aaron and I managed a little getaway this week to his parent's condo on the coast. I love how those white words look directly on top of the photos. I attached them using a Tiny Attacher

    I've so enjoyed all of your PL posts this week, thank you! I've made a "divide and conquer" dent in my stash thanks to you - feeling like it will be easier to have a formula approach (or any approach for that matter) if I get a few things in order. I don't need to be super organized, but my work area was chaos. You got me movin'.
