Project Life 2012 - Week Five

Five weeks in, and I'm still loving Project Life, I'm pretty sure that this is a shared sentiment amongst other Project Lifers!
I haven't touched any of my 'normal' scrapping supplies all year (apart from one last DT commitment I had), and I can honestly say that I don't miss it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE scrapping, but Project Life is exactly what I want to be doing right now, and so, I am fulfilled.

Main Spread, without inserts:
Sorry, I'm having some issues with the bottom right corner, and glare. This is the fourth photo that I have taken of this spread, and it's the best I can do right now.

I had a go at making my own subway art, for the information about Lily's classroom, and teachers, it was actually a lot of fun to pick out all the different fonts that I liked, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Main Spread, with extra inserts:

This week I had 4 extra inserts, Lily started Pre-Primary this week, and I wanted to get a photo of both kids on the first day of school (even though Benji is too little to go to school), and I will do the same at the end of the school year as well. I  had a questionnaire that I wanted Lily to fill out, and Benji also started Kindygym this week. 

Back of insert 1 & 2:
My big girl on her first day of school!

Back of insert 2 & 3:
Benji, on Lily's first day of school. Even though there were no photos of me this week, my voice is still there - the second insert is about my worries about sending Lily to school this year.

Back of insert 3 & 4:

I got into the habit of keeping our monthly calendars last year, and so it just seemed natural to slip that into my PL album too.

The other insert is an awesome questionnaire that I found online (here), it's American, so some of the words are spelt differently (colour/color), but I still thought it was cute, and wanted to include it.
On the back is an email we got from the school principal, in response to some concerns we had (some of which are outlined in the insert I wrote out).

I also wanted to include some links to some awesome Project Life groups, that I have joined (most are on facebook), you can never have too much inspiration and support, can you!?!
(you will need to purchase the FREE class, to access the forum and gallery).
