Project Life week 39 and a free download

Thank you for all your kind words on my last project life post. I really do love creating these pages. There is so much inspiration out in the blog world and each week I write down a list of new techniques I want to try! 

So in the spirit of catching up here is week 39...

It was my birthday week so I had lots of photos and quite a few taken with my lovely new lens. I love weeks when the photos are abundant, the pages seem to come together easier although the pages I love most are the ones where I have had to search around for the pictures. 

I also wanted to include photos of moving into our lovely new student house. 

I copied the text from my blog post on my birthday straight into that yellow journalling card. I like including blog posts in PL, especially when I am behind and am struggling for the right words. Going back to the blog posts can really help. 

I also included some sad journalling about the loss of our second cat who was hit by a car. It was really hard news to receive last week and it was hard to get that journalling down. 
PL is about keeping it real though and just because it was sad I didn't want to leave it out. Life is yuck sometimes and I think it's important to recognise that. 

I played around with those two photos of me on the right hand spread. I wanted lots of white space on the journalling cards and just a simple line of text. 

I also created a new journalling card, "you make me laugh every single day". I love how it turned out and so have put it at the bottom of this post as a free download (for personal use only). 

Anything else: 
I can't get enough of that Laura Ingalls Wilder quote, "home is the nicest place there is". I used it on the spread I made when I came home for the summer and liked the circularity of using it again to document coming back to Durham. 

I'm all caught up now and boy does it feel good! 

The 3 x 4 card can be downloaded here. Enjoy!

Another beautiful spread, Abi, and thanks for the download! Would you be willing to share some of the sites you particularly like for PL inspiration?

Sorry about your cat - how sad. I love your style on PL.
