Project Life | 2013 | the one with the time machine

I spent ages working on my first few pages for my Project Life album but as I'm now working on a secret Christmas project that is going to take up a lot of my crafty time I need to step it up a notch. Where's that time machine when ya need it? AND I would really, really like to document Christmas as it happens rather than months behind like I am doing now. So I'd like to have my December Daily/PL/Journal your Christmas pages ready for December. Still stuck in PL July - I need to get my skates on to catch up. So I decided to do it quickly - so not too much over thinking it, a lot less embellishments and more grabbing the first thing that looks OK rather than trying EVERYTHING else first.

 

Finishing up on our Gruffalo hunt at the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh I added some stickers that came with Jack's Gruffalo Trunki - he hasn't seen these pages yet but I think he'll be super excited when he sees that the Gruffalo was actually there! 

I've been struggling with keeping my photos in chronological order and fitting them into the photo pockets - one side works but the other side doesn't so I decided that as long as they are in roughly the right order I'm happy with that which means less time spent trying to figure out a way that works = more time for secret project!


  

These pages document the week Noah and I got hand, foot and mouth disease. I got tonsillitis (not just one virus at a time for me oh no). We placed a toy shop order to cheer ourselves up and Jack got his first pair of school shoes and Noah got his first pair of proper shoes ever! And that was July! Yay! Just August, September and October to do :)
