This spread is from my birthday week, and some of the photos aren't in chronological order. I kept trying to place the photos chronologically, but they weren't working well with how I wanted the spread to look and balance out, so I figured it was okay since everything was within the same week.
The pocket with the instax photo was heavily inspired and influenced by Kelly Purkey's Project Life style. I love how she uses a lot of paperclips and staples in her cards. The yellow striped transparency is from Basic Grey's Mint Julep collection, and I was quite impressed with how many die cuts and transparencies were in one package. They're sold out at Two Peas right now, but I'm hoping to get another pack when they are restocked. I used a stamp by Mama Elephant for the "you.me.oui.", and I like how quirky and fun the set is.
The strips are from the Basic Grey Hipster collection, and I love the colors and patterns. It's nice to have different little pieces without committing to a full roll of washi tape. I added in a Dear Lizzy "Lucky Charm" sticker and a cork camera from Studio Calico.
I don't think my boyfriend and I managed to get a "normal" photo! He was making silly faces at first, and the one where he did smile was the one where I made a face. Pretty much sums us up! To tie the photos together a bit better, I used a Studio Calico cork sticker to overlap both photos.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a good start to your week!
