I am nearing the end of June in my Project Life catch up, so I will be closing up volume 1 and beginning volume 2, July through December. I figured this might be a good time to catch up on posting the first half of the year as well. I'm starting here with week 2, which for us included our annual trip to Maine for skiing, enjoying outdoor beauty, shopping, eating and drinking. Lots and lots of fun on this trip every year.
This spread is definitely photo heavy...it always is when I document this trip. I added journaling to many of the photos, so the story gets told both on the photos and on the couple of 3 x 4 cards I included. I don't like that the spread is overall a bit dark, but that is the reality of the atmosphere, and I suppose that is okay.
I'm still working on getting rid of glare when I photograph these layouts!
I think the sign included above is from Elise Blaha's Instragram feed account, if I'm not mistaken. It was the perfect sentiment for how I was feeling just trying to get myself together for travel.
I felt the need to commemorate the passing of David Bowie as it was a stop and think and feel moment for sure.
When you're from Maine, as our friends are, you call a winter getaway cabin a "camp"...not to be confused with a "campground" which they also own - but that's a summer thing! Their camp on a mountain side in Western Maine, just on the New Hampshire border, is rustic, to say the least. No electricity, no running water, heat is by wood burning stove and there is an out house.
It's the coziest place we know, with wonderful memories. We love it!
Typically, the guys - Gary, Ed and Clayton - ski the entire weekend, and the girls - me and Becky - go shopping and lunching and driving through gorgeous scenery. I love this trip. This year was Becky's birthday, so we celebrated with a big black bear in North Conway :)
I made a 3x4 flip up to allow for an additional photo.
Patterned paper is on the inside.
All and all, not a super crafty spread by any means, but lots of great memories captured here that warm my heart. So grateful for this project and that I get the photos out of my camera!
