I did it!! I finally got the current week finished AND photographed in time to link up with The Mom Creative. So, here goes …. he’s the full spread:
I normally just fill each slot with a full size photo or journaling card, but this week I decided to try something different. I like some of the layouts I’ve seen of people that use smaller photos and treat each section as a mini layout, so I thought I’d give it a try:
I think it might look better if I were more of an embellishment-type scrapper. I *do* love playing with the 6×6 squares that I used on the right half of the layout. The top two spaces were about different artwork my girls did for school. I let my 8 year old take her own photograph and journal what she wanted to say – I’m glad I have that and I know she’ll appreciate in years to come (although she thinks it’s pretty cool now, too)
I played around with adding some subtle color/decoration to the plain grid card for the bottom 2 squares. I dug thru my new stash of washi tapes from Target and added a solid color to the side. I really like how it turned out.
I had an insert this week. The girls go with their daddy every couple of weeks to the Lowe’s Kid Build and Grow free workshops. This week, they brought home certificates for completing their projects. My 5 year old was just SO proud of this!
Thanks for looking! I am hoping to finally get all the other weeks posted up here. I have them done, I just haven’t had a chance to post them yet. I can’t wait to see what everyone else had done 🙂
