Project Life 2014 || Weeks 1 and 2

Week 1 ||Week-1

Dates: 1st January – 5th January

What happened this week? I made a one pot pasta for the first time, spent lots of time reading the Wicked Lovely books, watched World War Z and Star Trek Into the Darkness, had out housemate move out so it’s just me and Michael again, and went on 2 date nights (one was for frozen yogurt, the other was a picnic in the new house)

Week-1-Left

Anything special in the spread? I’ve changed the monthly card from what I used last year, changed out the quote cards for the currently card, and limited the colour scheme to black and yellow. I also downloading movie images from the internet for 2 of the 3×4 spots, and changed 2 of the 4×6 spots into one large spot for a panorama photo

Week-1-Right

Overall thoughts: I find the few changes I’ve made quite refreshing! I love limiting the colours to a couple of choices which makes it come together quickly. I had lots of photos this week, so choosing just a few was kind of hard!

Week 2 ||

Week-2

Dates: 6th January – 12th January

What happened this week? Made sang choy bow for the first time, finished reading the Wicked Lovely books, a birthday dinner for Michael’s niece, finished training a new staff member at work, caught up with a work friend for coffee, went to the Central Coast to visit family, had a breakfast catch up with Dad and my sister, lunch with Mum and my sister and brother-in-law and a beach trip, tried pancakes with bacon and maple syrup for the first time and watched Elysium

Week-2-Left

Anything special in the spread? I’ve tried using some squares so I could try out the Just Add Colour Project Life kit. I also added a couple of 3×4 cards made by using the Collect app on my phone, and mirrored the title card on the left with the journalling card on the right

Week-2-Right

Overall thoughts: Love the colours of this kit! It was also fun to experiment with squares for the first time. I think I’ll use more of the squares in other layouts as well. And I’ve been using the Collect app to document a photo a day on my phone, so I’m pretty sure I’ll end up incorporating more as the year progresses
