One week down, just three to go! I’m finding my groove for this go ’round of LOAD and am really enjoying it. Here are my layouts from the first seven days:
10 Things About VegasBeer Can Hats
First up, a quick recap of our trip to Vegas back in December. I used THIS template and changed the title myself.
Next is a layout I’ve been thinking about for a while. My family had a real love affair with the beer can hat back in the 70’s. Everyone had them and when I was working on scanning my family albums, I started putting some of my favorite beer can hat shots in a separate folder for just this reason.

The More Things ChangeYou Right Now
The prompt for this layout was “The more things change…” and I knew I wanted to do something about Alex over time. I was happy to be able to find photos from every year of his life with one of his favorite blankies!
For this next layout, I really played! I didn’t use my computer at all, I stitched, I used stickers, I used stamps… fun! I loved using these Instagram shots of Alex over the past few weeks.

One Last Coffee DateToo Well Fed
I’ve had this photo of my mom & dad sitting on my desk for about a year. On the day that dad died, I’d called them on my way to work and met them for coffee at the start of my day. Although this photo wasn’t taken on that day, it was taken at the same store under the very same circumstances. It was perfect for me to document that last coffee date.
Look at that fat baby! I had the chance to tell the story of my mom turning me orange when I was a baby by feeding me too much carrot juice!
PLWeek 5

Finally, I completed week 5 of my Project Life album. I’m still really enjoying this project and getting into the swing of recording life weekly vs. monthly. Mark and Alex are starting to get into the groove as well. Alex drew me a little picture for this week and I will love it if their voices show up more.

If you want a closer look at any of the layouts, just give them a click. To learn more about layout-a-day, check it out HERE. Lain typically runs the challenge three months each year and it is an awesome experience!
