i’m trying to catch up on my project life posts so that i can share them with you just a week behind.
after this post, i’ll be caught up!
week 3 of my project life album covers the week of monday, september 24-sunday, september 30. this week had two bigger events to document, and at first i wasn’t sure how i was going to fit them in the layout, but i found a solution i’m happy with!
since the week was focused around those two events, i didn’t have many “everyday” photos to put in this spread, so just the left side of this week has general photos from the week.
i also ordered a core kit, which arrived in time for me to do this week’s spread, so i was excited to use one of the cards from that for the date card. i used some white thickers to write “fall is here!”, because it was the first week that really felt like fall to me!
the left side also has some pictures from housewarming-prep decor changes – fall touches with the pumpkins on our table and the addition of a couple houseplants to make the house feel more homey.
side note: i love having plants in our house. i could have dropped a lot of money if i had gotten all of the ones i wanted. i think they add such a nice touch to a home – plus, they’re good for your health!
i really liked this quote for the week, too. i was feeling a bit caught up in getting our house looking “perfect’” for the party, but i just needed to chill and let that one go…
i added a couple of colorful journaling spots to some of the photos. i love how the mini staples look holding them to the pictures.
the second half of the week is where it got busy! we had our housewarming party on saturday and went to the packers game on sunday.
i used an insert for the very very few photos i got from our housewarming party (i’m so mad at myself for forgetting to take more pictures!).
beer, food, and dogs was the theme of the party for sure.
on the back side of the insert are some pictures of us & our friends watching the badgers game the night of the party.
on the right page is our packer game experience! i just added some of the fun photos from the day – cheers-ing our beers, food, a lambeau field sign, ticket stubs, etc.. i also added a little journaling card from the core kit with a couple silly notes from the game.
and that’s week 3!

what was your favorite moment from the past week?
i had so much fun at our housewarming party! so many people came and it ended up working out really well that people who knew each other came at the same time. the food was well-received and we didn’t have too many leftovers!
i didn’t do a recap on the blog because i forgot to take photos until the end of the night when most of the food, etc. was gone and the light was not good. most of the photos are in this project life spread anyway, so you get a little peek here!
