These two weeks I had a ton of photos to work with, and I simply wanted to include as much as possible. So, these spread are busy and not too artistic, but life was documented. Isn’t that the whole point of these albums anyway!?

  • Pink Ronnie - I absolutely agree – that is the whole point of doing PL!
    Love your photos, as well as these spreads – they’re filled to the brim with life and beauty.

  • rachel del grosso // big city quiet - manda, i’ve always wondered what percentage of your photos you take with your phone versus your DSLR? thanks!ReplyCancel

    • manda - ALL of the photos in these two weeks are iphone shots. But usually there will be at least one or two taken with my big camera. :)ReplyCancel

  • cinback - Love PL spreads that are full of photos. I tend to have way too many photos in a week and it kills me to have to select only a few. You have inspired me to just do it!ReplyCancel

Week 17! SO happy to be caught up and current with this book!

I used a coin protector page to show lots of the different crystals, gems, and rocks that we picked up. Fun stuff.

  • Kellie Winnell - Manda again absolutely fantastic, inspirational and love your pages.ReplyCancel

  • Sabine - Amazing layout. Love especially the stone collection in the coin protector page. Since I have a big stone collection, this would be so fun to document it. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    • manda - Yay! I love the coin pages. So fun for documenting a series of photos. :)ReplyCancel

  • Gert - What do you use to edit your photos? They are always so rich and warm. You are my absolute favorite Project Lifer :)ReplyCancel

    • manda - Oh my gosh seriously?! Thanks so much! I use Vsco Film in lightroom for my dslr photos and vscocam for iphone shots. :)ReplyCancel

  • cinback - What I have always loved about your PL (besides your crazy amazing photography skills) is that you tell the important stories of your week. I am assuming that you take more photos in a week than what you feature in your PL. But you are so good at pulling together a collection of photos that tell a story. Love that.ReplyCancel

    • manda - What a nice thing to say!!! Thanks so much.ReplyCancel

I’m completely caught up! Woot!

  • HEAB - Oh my gosh, love that last page too – so cool how you journaled on the car window.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer - Love these pages! Your photographs and journaling look so natural and lovely. It really looks like something you will be happy to look back through in 5 or 10 or more years. That will be awesome!ReplyCancel

  • rachel del grosso - the journalling in the car window? gorgeous!!ReplyCancel

Just an FYI, I’ll be posting about this album on Saturdays and Sundays for the next two weeks until I’m caught up. I’m 3 weeks behind and itching to be working on the current week.

So here’s week 10!

  • kelley - quick question…do you print all your photos at home? how do you go about printing your 12×12 photos?ReplyCancel

    • manda - Yes, I print all of my photos on a Canon Pixma 6320. I use a professional lab to print 12x12s. White House Custom Color. :)ReplyCancel

  • Kellie Winnell - I love it, I love it! The cat = amazing! And the writing around people in photographs is something I love doing and seeing!ReplyCancel
