My first PL album for 2013 stops at the end of June. So I started this album with a monochromatic title page
(I realise that the pictures are a little blurry. I will have to change the way I photograph these because it’s really annoying me right now, but I don’t have time to redo the pictures today!)
Here is the first week of July:
That Saturday we left Hong Kong for our amazing summer vacation. So all pictures from the rest of July and in this album
. The next spread covers the week that we returned. I added a picture of July from the Collect app, which shows a nice overview of our trip.
August 5 to 11: the kids are on vacation so lots of pictures featuring our daily activities.
August 12 to 18: getting ready for 30 Days of Lists and finding creative ways to occupy the kids during a typhoon.
August 19 to 25, with an insert showcasing my son’s growing swimming abilities:
August 26 to Sept 1: all pool all the time 🙂
Finally September arrived and with it, back to school spreads! I have 2 inserts for this week. One is for each child’s first day of school. The second is a small insert talking about the schoolbus route problems we experienced that first week!
September 2 to 8:
Septemebr 9 to 15. I did the Fatmumslim photo a day challenge in September and on the Wednesday, the prompt was ‘what you did today’ I put the pictures from my day in three 4 by 4 format pictures and put them in an insert. Loved doing that. On the back side of the insert, I put in two more pictures from that day and a letterpress card that featured a camera.
September 16 to 22. This was a busy week with Mid-Autumn festival activities, typhoon Usagi coming and also a great and long awaited brunch on the Saturday. So yes, there is another insert for this week! I was very happy to include some of the beautiful ephemera and packaging that comes with Mid-Autumn delicacies.
I sure love doing this project, even more so knowing that this is our last year in Hong Kong.
