Project Life 2013 - Week 4

Thursday, 21 February 2013

Week 4 is finally complete! I admit that I found it a bit overwhelming to tackle this week, which is why I am now about 3 weeks behind. We went away for the weekend, but I didn't want to add an insert, just make it part of our week. It's not my favourite layout, but it's done. And that's what counts, as it's an overall album I'm going for here.
I focused on every day life on the left hand side. Going through my album from last year, that date card in the top left looks huge, so I've experimented with making a smaller one instead. I'm still not sure what I think about it, but I'm happy to have an extra space for larger photos.
Our weekend away in Germany with family fills the right side. It was challenging to get a consistent look here, with photos from 3 different cameras in a variety of lighting situations, most of them from an indoor swimming pool. The amount of photos I had was a bit overwhelming, but I just tried to find my favourites, or the ones that sum up our weekend, and what we enjoyed most. At first I was trying to get pictures in there of everyone who came along, but some of the pictures aren't that great, and don't capture our favourite moments. I just had to remember that I'm not recording other people's memories, just ours, and left those pictures out. (Beklager hvis du ikke er med!)

I am now looking forward to tackling the next few weeks so I don't get too far behind. I really love this project and the way I can so easily record our every day lives. I keep it as simple as possible so it's not too overwhelming to actually complete it.

I'm linking up to the Mom Creative, so head over for lots more PL inspiration.

  1. I always love how you make sure to include photos of yourself Fiona. That is something that I am so terrible at!

    1. Thanks, Chantel. It has been a conscious choice for me this year to add a photo of myself (or something I am doing) every week. So far, so good!

  2. Thank you for not putting one in there of me in swimmers! :-) Like the fact that I'm there but really there you know! And love that you're back. Just love these little updates from your life, even if I'm so close there's so much going on I don't experience or learn of it all. Hugs xoxo

  3. Her har jeg vidst ikke været før. :)
    Synes du fik lavet nogle gode PL sider. Og jeg er enig i det med at prøve at inkludere sig selv i den ugentlige spread - det prøver jeg også på at gøre.
    Tak for kigget og for inspirationen ... oh... og jeg kan da lige nævne, at jeg fandt dit blog via The Mom Creative.

    1. Hej Charlotte, velkommen på bloggen! Jeg kender ikke rigtig andre i DK der laver PL, så det er sjovt at "møde" dig! Tak for din sød kommentar :)
