Pocket Life with Jen

Happy Friday and a Happy Memorial Day weekend to our US readers! Today, I'm sharing Week 15 in my PL album:

My pages have been leaning toward a lighter, brighter, simpler approach lately. With three very young children at home, creative time often happens in 2-5 minute increments as I can catch a quiet moment in the day. A natural evolution toward simplicity. The beautiful May Pocket Life and Pocket Life Embellishment kits, as well as the add-on stamp, helped me keep this spread simple and still on trend. Part of that simplicity? Using quick, typed journaling on white backgrounds with a bit of embellishing. I feel very strongly about using my own handwriting on my pages for a personal feel so, I've made sure to add in bits here and there.

This week also shows my concerted effort to get photos of myself and my husband in this album regularly. Since I am a stay at home mom and take photos of the kids all day long, it's easy to have only those three little people represented but, that isn't the whole story! Mom and Dad need to be there too. Relationships need to be documented with photos. It matters.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
