Project Life - Week 17

So I've never shared a project life spread before.  This is my first year doing project life and I truly enjoy it.  I recently just started doing one side/page weeks instead of two as I didn't seem to have enough to fill up two entire sides.  I don't have kids and I think people that have kids have a lot more going on and can capture way more.  For now, I'm giving one page spreads a try...

Here's the full spread for Week 17.  I did only one side, I've done this for the past two weeks since I sometimes don't have enough pictures and thought this would help me keep up and still enjoy project life instead of feeling like I have to find things to add.  Of course this week I had enough pictures for two spreads but went with my favorites.

I used Amy Tangerine's challenge of getty artsy in my spread this week.  I used my water color Lyra Crayons, based off Lisa Truesdell's love for them in her post, to color in the week.  Of course I had to showcase the crayons themselves as I just received them this week too!

A look at how I used this die cut to reference the week.  I used water colors to choose the month and week.  I also used water color to create this 4x6 card.  I love having control over the background colors, such a fun technique!

Here on the right I used another card from the lovely Echo Park Paper Co, happy paper. On the left, I wrote directly on the picture with my black precision pen and added a little die cut from BasicGrey. 

I did mention I love shadows right?  This picture was so pefect, loved it.  I used a 4x6 card from Pebbles and cut around the "Happy Thoughts" and stuck my phto behind it.  I absoultely love the effect and dimension it gives.  I also stamped the date with my lovely Dear Lizzy stamp.

I love playing with shadows in photography, it's always a fun snapshot.  I added a little die cut from the BasicGrey pack and a couple enamel dots.  Nothing is ever complete without enamel dots, right?!?

A little closeup of the lovely glitter tape by American Crafts that I cut to a banner shape.  These are the best tapes ever, I love every color and highly recommend the value pack.  I used some simple white letter stickers to create the title on this picture/pocket and love how simple it is.  The little star is from BasicGrey and I love how it's transparent, although you can see my glue but I won't let that bother me. 

I wrapped twine around this 3x4 card with an Instax picture of Riggly.  I took a Studio Calico Wood Veneer Heart and colored it white with my gel white gel pen e.v.e.r.

Thanks for following along <3  How many of you do Project Life and if so,do you keep a one page or two page spread each week?  I know the possibilities are endless with how you go about project life, I would love to hear your techniques.
