Week Twenty-Seven. Over the hump of the halfway point. Still loving this project.
This week included the Fourth of July, and since we had a BBQ you would think that I would have more than enough photos to choose from. Not so. Nope, it was too hot here in Minnesota last week–over 100 two days, and 99 on the third. (I think the other two days were 95+?) Too hot to do ANYTHING. My daughter said it best during one of our walks when she exclaimed “I am so hot, I’m as hot as a pan!” At first I didn’t know what she meant…but then she rolled her eyes at me and said, “I feel like a frying pan mom!”
This week I used a new kit from Lori Whitlock that was patriotic themed. I don’t know what it was about this kit, but it is my sweet spot. Enough cuteness, enough bold color, everything about it made my layouts come together in under an hour. All except the title card. I had an idea for something else, so I am pretty sure it will get swapped out. I wanted to make my Tuesday deadline here–so in went a filler. Hopefully I will get in there what I want sooner rather than later!
Now that the journaling is big enough to read, I don’t feel like I need to ramble on so much. The theme of this week was a LOT of time in the water!
A lot of Baby Marie on this page, and a lot of writing. I am trying to get better about the journaling portion of the book, and for the most part I am feeling pretty good about it. I am SO glad I started using the Week in Review card. When I look back at older weeks now (that don’t have it) I sort of blankly look at the pages and think to myself…now what did we do that week again?
That wraps up week 27. I had my camera out today and already have a TON of photos for week 28. It just ebbs and flows around here.
