Today I am doing a guest post for Project Life Tuesday at The Mom Creative. Head over to her website to check out the post, see other Project Lifer's pages (I don't know if that was or is a word/noun, but I just made it one), and add your link so you inspire others with your creativity as well.
Overview of week seventeen. I use Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages Design A as my base pages for each week and vary my insert pages with different photo pocket designs.
Close up of first part of the week.

Title card: I hand wrote the date and used American Craft thickers
Journaling Cards: I like to include my handwriting and when I can get my husband to add a story usually have handwrite it as well. At first I hated my handwriting...but I found the more I practiced it the better I it started to look....

For this photo I used a couple of instagram pics and movie tickets from our anniversary date night. The background paper is actually a postcard that was in the gift that my husband gave to my on our anniversary.
I used a bi-fold journaling card, but still had more to say so I used another 3x4 journaling card and just stuck it in between the bi-fold card.
I love the new line of Martha Stewart Labels at Staples. The colors are fun and compliment all of the Project Life Collections. Adding a label gives me a little bit more room to tell another piece of the story!
So that's it... week Seventeen. I'm trying to keep things fairly simple. I don't want to over think things. I don't want to take the fun out of Project Life. I want to remember the reason I love Project Life, because life isn't just about celebrating the big moments in our lives.... it's about celebrating the moments in between.... the moments that tell the story of our everyday lives.
Project Life is designed to SIMPLIFY the memory keeping process... don't over think it. You make the rules....it's your album....there are no Project Life Album Police. Make it work for you, so you can be successful!
