It was about time I photographed my Memory Planner and shared some pages with you! I am still learning and growing with my planner. Trying to get my groove. It is reminding me of my Smash Book days and I love that. I love being able to be free to do what makes me happy in it, even if that means adding a whole lot of washi tape! Ha!
At the beginning of April my family was sick for over a week. There is some hidden journaling on these pages with Project Life card-flaps. Who wants to read that every I flipped through April? Seriously, right?
At the beginning of the week, I wasn't sick and I was documenting. At the end of the week - I was. So there I started adding strips of washi tape to my planner and loving it. I now am doing it all the time!
I also started adding more stickers and started getting more decorative. My sweet daughter has found my phone a few times and I realized that I need to add some of these first selfies in my planner. These days a fleeting.
Let's be honest... there are days that I seriously have to sit and think hard on what good thing happened in the day. Having a strong willed child can be difficult. When there are amazing milestones, boy, you better believe I am making it one huge deal in my planner. I tell my son this too! He then can look back in the pages and see when he did well and focus on that! I am so glad for these memories documented!
I added some Minc Gallery Prints to my planner. Some of them are small enough to put in a protector or just add as an additional page. This one I decorated the front and then added gold foiled paper to the back. I glued a pocket page to this page so I could slide in more pictures.
I knew I wanted more places for pictures for this week because I was visiting Heidi Swapp and Rebecca Cross the head of both Heidi Swapp and Pink Paislee brands while in Utah for Snap! I also got to meet up with Heidi Swapp Design Team Member Jamie Pate. So I used a Minc envelope and slid more photos inside!
I brought my planner with me and was able to journal almost everyday!
With what I didn't have time for, I made sure to finish when I got home while the memories were fresh. I can tell you right now, I couldn't tell you what we did when because so much has happened since then! I am so glad everything is written down so that I can look back and remember.
