Project Life: April 2-8 & 9-15, 2012

Hey all!  A quick update on PL (I know it's been awhile).  Still sticking with this; I know how rewarding it is on December 31 to have a whole year of memories and journaling broken down week-by-week.  So here we go!
April 2-8, 2012:
Here's the whole spread; I included an insert this week, of the card my aunt sent the boys for Easter.
The left hand side: I'm still really liking the way the date looks typed onto the date card.  I decorated the date card with 2 stickers that my aunt included in the Easter card to the boys.  In the journaling card spot, I put a cut out of the stain chart from the stain we got for the front porch.  That was a project we took on this weekend, and I LOVE the way it turned out!  We hadn't done anything to our porch since we moved in almost 6 years ago, and the color looks so rich!  The bottom left-hand photo is a picture of some toilet paper origami my sister did for us...unfortunately we didn't have a spare roll in the bathroom, so the artwork was short-lived.
Here's the Easter card insert; I didn't want to sacrifice any of my 4x6 photos spaces for this, but I wanted to include it.  I adhered the card to a piece of card stock and punches 2 holes so it would fit in the binder.  It was important to me to include this, because my aunt has always been really great about sending cards for every holiday when I was little, so I'm glad my boys get to experience this tradition too (plus, how fun is it to get something other than a bill in the mail?!)
And more pictures from the week, including some from a friend's 30th birthday party where my boys met a new friend.  The middle 2 pictures in the journaling card spaces is actually a 4x6 that I wanted to include, but didn't have room for it in the 4x6 spaces.  I just cropped the photo to 3x4 on one side, then 3x4 on the other side; there's a little overlap, but I wanted to get the picture in there.  I also included a screen shot from my iPhone (hold down the home key and the on/off switch at the top-the picture will save to your Camera Roll).

April 9-15, 2012:
Another week of lots of photos and an insert.
Here's the left hand side; there's another screen shot of my Weight Watchers progress (I've lost 36 pounds since I came back to work from maternity leave) and some journaling about my progress, along with a picture of the Teacher Appreciation cake my friend and I made on Saturday for her daughter's pre-school teacher (interested?  find the post here!)  The bottom right-hand picture?!  Taken by my uber-talented photographer friend!  I never saw the point of having your family professional photographed...until I saw these images.  LOVE them!  (more to come on the right-hand side of this PL)
This week I included the map from our zoo trip.  It's in a 12x12 protector, that I cut down slightly.
And the right hand side: some more of Krista's photography, and some pictures of the boys at the zoo.

Thanks so much for visiting!
