Project Life: Week 7

I finished this weekly spread of Project Life only a few weeks ago, and already I have forgotten some of the sweet events of our daily life.  

Spending a little time reminiscing as I photograph and post about the past few weeks.

Since it was the week of Valentines Day - the color theme had to include Red.

I always start out by printing the photos I want to include - and take my clue from the colors in the pictures.  

Then I sort through my cards and choose ones that work well with the colors in my photos.

Even though the main colors this week were Red and Black - I didn't want to limit myself.  This is real life, and life is colorful.  So I include photos with all kinds of colors - even if they were not a perfect match. 

I participated in the Monthly Photo Challenge Ten on Ten - and created a collage incorporating my photos from throughout the day into one 4 X 6 photo (I didn't manage to get all 10 photos taken - that's why there are only 8 pictures in the collage).

I used a little selective coloring to highlight the color of the Rose in this tiny picture.  I fussy cut the edges of the ticket and slipped the photo underneath.  

The title card is made from simple black card stock with other elements layered on top.  

Even though the format of the title cards change each week - I almost always include the same details:

 - Week Number (using dimensional stickers)
 - Month
 - Date Stamp with week dates (I am documenting my weeks as Monday through Sunday)

Cards used this week are all from the Studio Calico Project Life Monthly kit - with a few embellishments from my stash.
