week 20. just about 8 weeks behind but hoping to start getting caught up and adding project life back to my weekly routine. trying to tackle the backlog of photo editing so that i can get started. for this week, i used BasicGrey's clippings collection for the BG blog's week by week series
It’s crazy to look back at these photos of a very pregnant me now that I have an eight week old baby. That’s one of the reasons I love this method of scrapbooking. So many great bits of life are contained in each weekly spread.
[Left Page] An impromptu weeknight dinner out. A baptismal birthday gift for my daughter. My daughter’s first slush. A trip to a local dairy farm and creamery.
My title card for this week. Can I tell you how much I loved using the Clippings Alphabet Stickers for this project? They always seemed to be the perfect finishing touch as there are three different sized layouts on one sheet. Love how they all coordinate for such a cohesive look.
This collection also perfectly coordinated with this label from a bottle of milk we bought on our trip to a local creamery. I simply cut a piece of paper to fit the slot of the page protector, added the label and then selected a border sticker for the top and bottom.
this is where i'll also note that apparently our "city" children didn't realize the milk they drink every day comes from a cow. how is that possible?! instead, they weren't too sure of the milk we purchased since they knew of it's origins. they now refer to the white drink as "cow milk."
[Right Page] A trip to the park for playgroup. A date night stop for funnel cake. Crazy hot weather for Wisconsin in May. Documenting my daughter’s love of french toast. A photo of me on my due date. My daughter’s redeeming prize tickets at a local restaurant. Planting flowers on our deck. My husband and daughter napping.
This collection made it easy to simply grab a sticker or two and personalize each piece of my layout. Here I used not only stickers, but also stamps and a piece of our Snippets pad to document this Instagram photo of my love of funnel cake.
