Project Life :: Week 18

The first week in my second album, and a busy one, because it was Party Week. Yes, Liam turned Six and we had a A Vintage Superhero party!
Around here that adds up to a lot of photo's. So I included not one, but two inserts, to hold all the party photo's.
This page I kept relatively calm, just a bit of the week preceding the party. Mostly party preparations: Making the capes, lolipops, baking the cake etc. And a photo of the Igloo Project after the dog.. well, ate it.

Here you see the first page of the party inserts. I just cut two Design A's in half for the inserts. The "Zap" , "Pop" etc. came from the cake. I stuck it onto a fold-up card that contains journaling about the party.

This is the middle of the two inserts. Very busy, but it reminds me a bit of a vintage comic book, so I'm ok with it being busy. I love that awesome "six" card, and the fact that one can see it no matter if the inserts are open or closed. It was a freebie I found on Pinterest.
And here is the back of the last insert and then mostly documenting Liam's actual Birthday on the Saturday: playing with his Hotwheels loop de loop, opening presents, Egg Benedict for breakfast, going to play Putt-Putt, waffles at the Spur, and -on Sunday- Flapjacks and Icecream for the Neighbourhood Circle.
Thanks for looking through this rather long post.

I'll be linking up at The Mom Creative.


  1. Oh I love the party pages - looks just like a vintage comic book. Well done!

    1. Thanks Cat, wish I could say it was intentional, but it just worked out that way :)

  2. Hi Alida - these are great layouts and the party looks awesome. Repeating the blue and red colour scheme throughout the layout worked really well. Just love the zaps, pops and zooms. Reminds me of the old Batman tv show. :-)

  3. Great PL pages - I love the super hero birthday. Funny photos. Love the "zap", "pop" and "boom" words. Lovely colors and lots of nice stuff to look at. :)
