PROJECT LIFE April 8 to April 14

hello it's time for project life update again, so glad to still be caught up!! I kept it kinda simple with a few added things, will explain in the close ups. Just wanted you to see the whole spread together, had to add an extra insert due to Easter and my 12 on 12 collage page. Love how each week can be whatever you want it to be. Lots of collages again, LOVE THEM!! Ok ready for close ups....
Here is the left side, starts with Easter Sunday so I included a candy wrapper, love these! I included a big journal card about our Easter day and the collage is on the right side even though you can't see it here. I added a doily from my dear friend Tracey to the date card, love these! Finally took pictures of me wearing my new glasses, they are so different from my past ones. Slowly getting use to them.
Here is the extra 81/2 x 11 insert for my Easter collage. Added a few Easter embellishments to it. Love seeing all these photos together.
Here is the 12 on 12 collage on the back of the Easter one. My camera wouldn't work for me on the 12th, not sure why. So I cheated and took pics on the 13 instead when my camera decided to work. Still calling it my 12 on 12th though. We had a great day outside and enjoyed a little bit of sun.
Here is the right side for the week, more collages!! I used a big journal card again about our 12 on 12 day. My favorite of this week is the collage with me and Lucky, LOVE THIS!! It was cool with frost on the ground and the sun coming up behind us. Took many tries to get these, he didn't know why I wanted him to stand still and not keep walking, lol  So glad I got these though! Click on images to see better. The bottom one of Colt was a special time while his sister napped, then it's just me and him. Love watching him play and enjoy his toys and he's starting to walk more!!

So that's it for this week and next week I will be joining the wonderful, inspiring Ali Edward's in another round of WEEK IN THE LIFE!!  Not sure if I will add it to my PL or get another album for it. So next week I won't be posting a project life update but will be posting my pics everyday and thoughts along the way. It's a big time commitment but sooooo worth it when done!! If you want to know more or want to join in leave me a comment and I will help you along and you can visit Ali's blog for lots more info and past WITL that she's done. Hope everyone is doing well and thanks for stopping by to visit me. I love reading your comments and checking out your blogs too.

  5. Another great week Dawn!! Love the shadow photos, I need to try and do this soon, and also the self portrait pictures of you in the mirror. P.S. I don't have to bribe my kids, I have had my camera in their faces since the day they were born so it's just part of life for them now!! :)
