Project Life | Week 20

Welcome to Week 20. I'm very excited to be photographing PL with a "new" lens. A 28-80 mm Canon lens bought at a second-hand shop for just R250-00. It actually came with an old Canon film camera, but works perfectly on my Digital Canon. The best part: I no longer have to climb on a bed and stand on my toes to photograph my pages with my 50 mm lens!

I forgot to add in the dates, but this would be 13-19 May 2013.

This week I documented: Monday moment with a favourite magazine and chocolates, going on a breakfast date with my husband (whose idea it was to try the lens on my Canon), and an everyday at home moment. All the cards are freebies, hopefully found somewhere on my PL freebies board on Pinterest. "Hello Life" overlay on the bottom photo is from Ali at Designer Digitals (I altered a it a bit, removing a line).

This side has (surprise!-not) an insert. Design A cut in half. It's mostly photo's I took over a slow week-end at home (recently blogged about it).

And here is the insert turned open. It shows Liam working on a homemade loom, playing charades, and a wolf beanie that I made for Reuben. And more freebie cards. I also liked recording the little rhyme I exchange with the kids every night at bedtime (the top photo shows it clearer). Do you have something that you regularly say to each other? Ali's post "Right now | The words" has me inspired to record more of the things we repeatedly say around here.
That's it. Another week of life recorded = happiness.
I'll be linking up at The Mom Creative.

  1. I really need to remember to add some journalling about the words we say. One forgets so easily. I used that portrait card you had a while ago in my week 20 (linked back to you) . You were quite correct - the 3 faces look sute together - however A also did the parents.

    I love the puppy shot! And yes, all the old Cannon lenses work well. I have one of my old ones I use.

  2. I love how you used so many photos and cards with bits of yellow and tan. Your page looks so "put together," without being overly fussy.

    Also, REALLY REALLY like the card that says "Make something happen today." Perfect! :)

  3. Your pages look wonderful. Thanks for the link to your pinterest page. LOVE freebies.
    I have to get better at recording things we say everyday. Project Life is so perfect for that.

  4. What kit are you using - are all of those journaling and title cards freebies? If so, what an awesome find! I love them and your layout :)

    1. Thanks Emily! I'm using the Cobalt kit, but I use a lot of Freebies. On these pages are mostly Freebies except for the Date card, the card left of the dogs, and the "Today's snaphot" card. The "Favourite song this week" was a freebie cut (because I didn't like my first journaling attempt) and added to a grid kit card.
