Still keeping up with my project life layouts . . . this is like, what, a 3 week streak? Hey, you've got to cheer yourself on! Even in the little things.
This is the routine that works for me. I print my photos on Sunday or Monday at home, make a little pencil sketch of my layouts (so I can jot down journaling notes, the tidbits I don't want to forget, and figure out where to place everything). And then on Monday night I put it all together while watching The Bachelorette. Don't judge.
(oh, and I just noticed a typo. This should be may 28 - june 3. I go Monday to Sunday with my weeks. Will I print a new photo to fix it? Nope.)
Some weeks I really like the photos that come out of my camera. This is one of them.
I'm trying to take design notes from some of my favorite Project Lifers: Ali Edwards, Elise Blaha, Design Editor. More full pocket photos (even in the 3x4 journaling pockets). Don't clutter the page with product. Or text. Add journaling to the photos in photoshop. And use a photo for the date/title card.
You might recall these quotes from Payton.
I feel like I'm the last person on the Project Life planet to purchase a Smash journaling tag pad. I finally splurged, shelling out 1.49 at Target.
On Sunday we came home from church and Scott had the most fantastic idea to roast marshmallows over the gas stove burner. And can I just tell you that we are forever changed because of it?

Milky Way Caramel bars
Oh man. The PB cups were my favorite. The next day we made then again for family home evening. This time I tested it with Mounds bars. Also pretty incredible.
For the "recipe" photo -- In PSE, I added a 3x4 white block over my 4x6 photo and lowered the opacity way down. Then I typed the journaling on top. I really liked using 2 journaling pockets for one photo -- very fun. But I especially love that boy's cute cheeks.
