As you all know, I’ve joined Week in the Life project by Ali Edwards last week so there is no project life update from me. It was a really cool and fun project and I can already see myself doing it again next year. The album is yet to be done but it’s coming together – will soon post about it.
And because of that, I played catch up over the weekend to finish up to Week 37 of my Project Life. Here’s how the last 3 weeks went for us.

I decided to go simple on these 3 weeks for 2 reasons. One, i have a very limited stash (newbie hybrid and paper scrapper here). I’m running out of thickers and embellishments and replenishment is not happening soon. Two, I’m behind by 3 weeks and need to catch up on my latest spreads so I want to be done and not worry about the little details of embellishing so much. I started this project halfway through the year and I still have 5 more months worth of spreads to catch up so being late on the latest weeks is not a good idea.
Week 36 Tip: Thickers is very useful on my spreads and I always ran out of alphabets to use for my titles. Since most of the number 3 has been used, I decided to spell out Week Thirty Six instead of writing it in numeral. Made use of my existing thickers and perfect title too.
