Project Life Week 4

This week was so monumental in our lives!
It was such a perfect example as to why a project like this is so important right now :)
I will always be so blessed to have all of this recorded for the future!!
Here are my pages for this week:

and here is a bit of a closer view for you all...

* I absolutely loved these journal cards that were a free download.
I started the week with just little photos on them for representation but then with all of the excitement during the latter part of the week, i journaled on them.
*  I made some instagram photo strips from my photos this week.
*  a screen shot of the blog post I wrote as soon as I got THE CALL.

*  Lol, Adam is still wearing sunglasses in all photos to hide his red eyes from LASIK :)
*  I added a little confetti pocket to symbolize all of the celebrating we have been doing over here.
*  I also got my hair done this week so I did a little "before" shoot and an after photo.
*  Adam and I have also been having wii tennis tournaments over here lately.

When i purchased all of my Project Life pages, I ordered a pack of these cute 12x12 envelopes to store special treasures in from weeks where I would need them.
This was one of those weeks :)
I have printouts of the blog posts and comments about the "the call."  I also took a screen shot of all of the Facebook comments that I received and twitter comments that I received about it.
Also inside is a list of everything I wrote down that I learned about the birth mother and a sweet letter to our baby from a dear friend.

Obviously, this week has been such a blessing to us and I absolutely love how it all folded out in my Project Life album.  
Im sure this whole next month will be filled with exciting pages to come.

  1. It looks amazing! I posted my week one a bit ago with a link to yours and saying that I'm not an art teacher! You were my inspiration for starting PL. Here's my link to week two: http://www.letterstomo.com/2012/01/project-life-week-two.html

  2. what a joyful an exciting week you've both had! hoping the best for you. i adore your project life pages. :)

  3. I'm new to your blog and I just want to say I LOVE this project life idea. I know some other bloggers are doing it, and was wondering of there was an original blog outlining the "rules",,, just wondering if there is a certain kind of book or page template and where to get those pages if so. I know I'm late to start it but we have a new baby and I'd love to document his life in a fun way like that.

    Also, I've read up on your adoption journey so far. Praying for y'all as you are so close to the new beginning! I love your nursery.

  4. I saw those same journaling cards and thought they were fun, I might maybe use them this coming week...congrats on the news...I am in social work so I am cautiously HAPPY for you...I pray everything goes smoothly...

  5. I love the idea for your weekly lovelies!
