Project Life: Week 9
Dates: May 6 – 12, 2013
This was a really fun week to document — Alex and I returned home from our quick trip to Portland, I participated in my second Color Run, our first Rose Bowl swap meet for the year, and it was Mother’s Day!
Let me just start off by saying that little cartoon still has me laughing, my yoga BFF and color run companion randomly sent it to me at work and I printed it out immediately. I knew it had to go into my Project Life binder.
Pro Tip: Stick random things that make you laugh into your folder. It may look super out of place, but I’m sure it’ll make you laugh as you go back through the pages!
On our last day in Portland, Alex and I walked a few blocks from our hotel to visit a bouldering gym – it was fantastic. If you’re in Portland, check out The Circuit Bouldering Gym. It’s large, has plenty of problems to keep you busy, the staff is nice, and the bathrooms have changing rooms so you don’t need to take your shoes into the actual bathroom. You can read about our trip to Portland here.
On this side of the layout, I included some Thickers from American Crafts and a Flair from October Afternoon over the page protectors for added dimension. The blue card with a horseshoe on it is a business card from Stumptown coffee.
When I flip over my race bib, you see the rest of the layout:
On this side of the layout, you can see that the Color Run was a big deal for me. It was different than my last color run — the weather was cooler and I didn’t have to drive far to get to it (my first race was in San Diego). I included a temporary tattoo from the event in a 4×3 pocket so I wouldn’t need to use stickers for a title or journaling. The pink ticket in the bottom corner is my ticket from the swap meet — the color worked perfectly with this side of the layout. And the menu is from Mother’s Day lunch – we really know how to party.

When you don’t have many ‘everyday’ shots
to include in your layout, how do you organize your photos?
