Project Life 2017 Week 20 | ft. Sahlin Studio Clean Lined Templates No. 02!

Hi guys! Today I am sharing my layout for Week 20 in my 2017 Project Life album. This layout was created for the Sahlin Studio Creative Team, using the Sahlin Studio Clean Lined Templates No. 02 and also the You Are Here collection. Physical embellishments are from Freckled Fawn!

Have a look at the completed layout!

Our stories for this week mostly were about driving up to Pilot Mountain for a streetfest they did! We also celebrated Mother's Day and I got these totally groovy llama pajamas. And my gardenia bloomed, which was a really awesome surprise too!

or this week's layout I did not record the digital process. I think in an effort to catch up and also to focus on some important things (like my upcoming class!!!) I did begin with the Sahlin Studio Clean Lined Templates No. 02, which are always so easy and fun to work with.

My date card was created by adding the Simple Stories alphas for Week 20, and then I used a Dear Lizzy rotary date stamp for the date.

For my round journaling I simply created a circle in Photoshop and used the Path Selection tool to write the words around the circle. The acrylic hearts in the July Freckled Fawn kit fit perfectly inside! I also used the vellum alphas from Freckled Fawn to write Mother's Day inside this digital frame - so quirky and fun!

For the right hand side, I tweaked the template so I could include this enlarged photo as a focal point. It's always fun to make quick changes to your templates so you can make it work for your photos and your stories!

I have promised myself this year to include more journaling on my Project Life layouts, and I am accomplishing this by doing both typed and hand-written journaling. I think this has helped me tell more stories this year. I also included one of Alan's Instagram posts along with his text underneath the photo of Nick and the dog. This is a great way to include others' voices in your layouts, with their permission of course!

These photos of the four kids together are just priceless, aren't they?! I still make a concerted effort, at least once a month, to draw them all together and take the photo. I also added a little more journaling onto this photo.
