You know it's bad when you can post a month at a time. Yep, I've fallen behind on Project Life. And this willful girl is refusing to admit defeat. I am not giving up. I am living proof AGAIN that you CAN get caught up on Project Life.
Week 10 was really fun to put together. I spent the most time on it. It was a special week, Eric turned 40!

This was my first time ever for an insert. I took the cover of the program for the play we'd gone to see the weekend of Eric's birthday and I sewed it together with all of the cards and notes and drawings the kids had made for Eric's birthday. I have always struggled to know which of those things to keep. This seemed to work really well and I will likely do it again, at least for milestone birthdays (like 40).
I loved the colors this week and I loved the layout. What I didn't love was that I printed my photos on my printer and I just didn't love how dull they ended up being. But when you're behind, you just have to let perfection go. At least I do, or nothing would ever get done!
My least favorite layout to date. But again, with the perfection. Sometimes you just have to move on, which was the case with this layout.
I liked this layout except for the fact that it reminded me too much of one I had done recently. I do love a couple of details that I have on this page.
My grandpa had his 92 birthday this week. A big deal.
I included a letter that my grandma wrote to him and read to all of us at the party. It was incredibly honoring and I wanted to include it. I folded it up and tucked it in the sleeve, only showing part of it. But it's sewn in such a way that it can be pulled out and unfolded to read and then refolded and tucked back in.
So that was a month...
