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
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.
