Project Life - Week 6

Week 6 was busy. I ended up adding three inserts to the weekly spread.

Left: page + insert #1 (front)
Right: insert #3 and right page picking under

As always, lots of pictures and some journaling cards to tell the story.

Ella had a check up visit. I wrote the story on a folded journaling card and added two pictures inside. They are hidden from a plain view but I know they are there.

We had a snow storm and I snapped few pretty pictures. I found a pretty quote and printed it on a grid card. The blue snowflake is from Doodlebug and I have them for years.

Right: insert #2 (the roller derby program) with insert #3 and right page picking under

This week my MOMS club had a Valentine party. We spent Thursday making chocolate dipped marshmallow and Valentines. Eli wrote his name and used glue dots to add heart shaped mazes to the cards.
Lila participated in her first roller derby bout and I kept the program and the ticket. I trimmed an 8.5x11 page protector and stitched it on the side to fit the program.

The pictures in the insert #3 are from the Roller Derby bout. I took the pictures in the top left corner and bottom left corner. Other three pictures I downloaded from the Facebook album. They were taken by Nick Collura. I decided not to round the corners of the pictures in this insert. I think they look more athletic in this way :)

I wanted to add a QR code with the video from the bout instead of the speech bubble but I can not make my vimeo video work on a smart phone so that will have to wait.

Right: right page

The derby was on Saturday and on Sunday the parents were invited to watch the practice. The pictures on the back side of insert #3 are from the practice. I used gold Colorbok stickers on the front and the back side of this insert.

The right page of the layout has random pictures from the rest of the week and one journaling card. I also included the "chalk" artwork I made for Eli's preschool. It was my first time doing anything like that and I was super happy how it turned out.

I am linking up with Project Life Tuesday over at the Mom Creative.
