project life 2014 // week four.

Dated: January 20 - January 26. This is the fourth week of project life and I'm still extremely obsessed with it in every way.

What I did this week: I spent the week in California with Max, which was literally life changing. I can't look at New York the same way again, but more on that here. We went to Disneyland, had brunch at the Ivy, spent a day in LA looking for stars (we found none, whomp), and went on a boat ride to see sea lions off of Balboa Island. It was an amazing week and I had a lot of photos to share.

About this spread: I had a lot of photos from this week away so I ended up making a six page spread instead of two (insert emoji face with the red cheeks, big eyes, and straight mouth). I used a Design G page protector to share most of the Disneyland photos because I thought it would be nice to separate those two and a half days in their own little spread. I chose this protector because I wanted something smaller than the 12x12 pages sandwiching it. I also used a hashtag my whole week in Cali (#alessiaincalifornia) to keep all of my instagram images in one place. I used a coin protector page to fit all of those images in one place while keeping the small, square format.
Thoughts, concerns + details: I had so much fun making this spread. At first I was a little overwhelmed because I had so many pictures to place, but once I got my groove going it was a blast. One thing I did was I used a weather screenshot from my phone so I can remember how absolutely perfect the weather was while we were there. I also printed out my favorite picture of the week (the palm trees below) in an 8x6 format so that I could keep the length of the trees in the photo and spread it across two photo slots. I love the way that came out the best. With the instagram spread, I didn't have forty pictures to use up all the spaces, so I filled twenty six with pictures, two with the hashtags I used while there, and the other twelve had patterned papers with flair badges and paper clips to jazz them up.
Photo breakdown: phone photos: 24 (50 if you count the little instagrams!) // canon t3 photos: 0 (ashamed I didn't bring it with me) // polaroid photos: 0. Taken by me and the self-timer. Photo of Max and I with Daisy taken by Max's mom.
