Project Life : April Blog Hop

As a mom, I feel like we are constantly on the go. Cleaning up, school drop off, doctor's appointments,  cooking dinner, a little playtime... and more cleaning. Sneaking in time, or rather, MAKING the time, to go through the photos I snapped in the midst of these daily tasks allow me to take a breath, and reflect on our story. A story that is much deeper than what my planner full of appointments tells. Project Life makes it so easy for me to get these photos and stories told. And this spread from late February/early March is no exception.

I used several Studio Calico kit cards and a few Becky Higgins cards for this layout, adding just a bit of text to tell our story.  For instance, a funny quote from Alwyn when he was avoiding bedtime, and another quote from Ephram while visiting the aquarium.  I used the 'hello' card to mention a few of the main events during this time period: "Hello Sicknesses. Hello Age Five. Hello Grandma."

Ali Edwards' digital sentiments were another great simple addition to this spread.  If you'd like to learn more about adding digital text to your photos, I cannot recommend Pam Baldwin's Text Tricks class over at Big Picture Classes enough.  So informative!

In addition to photos and stories, I included our movie stubs in this spread.  Little scraps of life are so fun to include and are another reason I love this physical way of documenting.
