Instead of continuing along the road to try and achieve PL perfection, I've noted in my journaling, two lots of weekend activities. An extension of notes from Week 35 as well as the current happenings of Week 36. In years to come, looking back through these pages, it won't matter if my boys won their grand final hockey game in Week 35 or Week 36. It will matter that I've documented it. It won't matter if we celebrated Spring with fresh watermelon on a Thursday or a Friday. It's in my PL to document our daily happenings.
Mistakes are clearly going to happen and I did promise myself to become a more active participant for my PL rather than an observer. So here I am smoothing things over with myself, and moving on. *grin*
This week I have once again used the gorgeous Crate Paper: Notes & Things and Teresa Collins Designs: Nine & Co. I love to mix collections and add layers to my PL cards. Week 36 has highlighted touches of gold and mint to interact with the colours in my photos.
I also had a few video files I wanted to include this week. My daughter was involved in the Ice Bucket challenge, which ultimately led back to me being involved! These moments were captured on video and I have created QR Codes to keep them with my memory keeping notes of PL. To create your own QR Codes, revisit my step by step here.
When it came down to defining and fixing my mistakes, I Photoshopped the words 'Saturday' and 'Sunday' to the images below. It's a small step to help remind me in the future, of the correct events for the correct days.
This spread has used a number of the Crate Paper: Notes & Things journaling cards. They come already beautifully embellished with stitching and layers.
The filler card below (included in the collection), is a vellum envelope that fits perfectly into a 3x4 pocket space. The mint sentiment was added to the outside of the vellum and I left the glitter circles to fall freely within the folded down envelope. I've layered with a yellow label sticker attached to a toothpick to create a flag. The touch of yellow is needed to create a visual triangle when the two PL pages are side by side.
