A simple week of documenting Arthur's new found mobility. I have a ton of pictures of him crawling everywhere, especially where he shouldn't (i.e. hallway).
I pulled out my partial Kiwi kit and fell in love with the bright colors. I decided to pick a few colors to focus on instead of a mish-mash of cards. I ended up pulling black, pink, and blue cards. I added a few journal tags to fill some of the pictures. I also added a random button flair that has been hanging out in the bottom of my PL box. In the end, I felt that the week card was too plain. Thankfully I had some silver glitter tape and a cute sentiment stamp. Lastly, I added the "Currently" card as an afterthought. I have a few of her cards and a "currently" stamp to make my own. Figured I should start using them sometimes.

I ended up having too many pictures to fill a regular spread. Try as I might, I couldn't par it down to a regular spread. So, I added two separate inserts (design G and H) to highlight two big events of the week: Arthur's photo shoot and Lynn's Sprinkle.
Again, I relied on Kiwi to fill my spots. Each page highlights one color from the Kiwi kit. I chose yellow/orange for the first page to pull out the oranges and the sunlight from the pictures. The last page has a lone pink card, but it pulls nicely from the red check blanket. The photo shoot insert is all blue. The green of the sprinkle insert highlights the green grass from the park. As for embellishments, I added some alphas, stamps, and journaling tags, but left most of the photographs alone. My favorite part of this week's spread is my little "addition" to the picture on the second page, top right. See it? I can't believe I got the placement just right. And it's the right size. Love it!
