What I did this week: I had off on Monday because Max had a party in school that his mom wanted to go to and spent the whole day with my friend Meagan at the gym and getting our nails done. I worked Friday as a result (working on Fridays is for animals, god bless all of you five-dayers out there), so was busy all week getting ready for a birthday party for my friend Kiersten and myself on Friday. Saturday I spent the beautiful sunny day at the gym and outside, then went to dinner with my parents and caught a train into the city for a night out to celebrate with my oldest girlfriends.
About this spread: I had so many photos for this week, but I knew that I wanted to add inserts that weren't photos already, so I just cut it down to some of the best ones and left it at that. I went back this week to using a lot more stamps, because they are for sure my favorite things to use, and because I liked last week's cohesiveness with the seafoam journal cards, I kept it uniform with the tan journal cards this week.
Details + interesting tidbits: (Above) A lot of detail went into this week's spread. To start, I did the same type of current documentation for me and Max, like I did for the first week of February. I used a calendar card this week because it was the first full week of March, and instead of journaling on it like I have the past two months, I stamped it and wrote "birthday month" on the side. I used a polaroid photo this week and clipped it to a 3"x 4" card like I usually do. (Below) The first insert I added was straight from my 25 things blog post, and because the 4" x 11" size I made it was a weird size for photos, I made it double sided by adding the text "25 things" to the back. I cut down a pocket page from my OLW album and sealed it with washi tape. The second insert was an envelope insert that I used to put a few of my birthday cards in. I added a grid card with stamping and text about birthdays to the front pocket of the envelope, and I love how you can see through it to the cards.
