Digital Project Life | Week Six

Hello Digital Project Life | Week Six.
My less favorite thing to do is play catch up with this project.  My most favorite thing to do is enjoy the process of this project every chance I get to record another week.

Here is a look at the open digital album. click on the image for a clearer view.
Left side:
I used a journal card from my Capture digital scrapbook collection as the title card.
Adding the calendar on the weekly title card is a fun way to highlight the specific days of the appropriate week. Again, I used some elements from my Capture Collection. The week six element is from my 52 weeks in chipboard set.
I blurred out the journaling about my Aunts doctor visits again this week.
Insert Right side:
Here I added a digital insert. A scanned the front of a card I received from my Aunt.
For the digital plastic I simply cropped down a 12x12 size, purposely leaving the top to appear it had been cut, then I added some stitching to seal it shut. :) no sewing machine required.

Flip side of insert: 
I scanned the inside of the card. Then added a scan of the envelope front as a separate layer on top the left side of the card. This is one of the many reasons I absolutely love digital memory keeping. No boxes crammed full of ephemera to stow away.
Right side:
Ruger was feeling a bit under the weather this week. This is when the flu was spreading around like wild fire. We managed to get flu shots and gratefully escaped the bug. But for Ruger, cough syrup and couching was definitely the highlight of his week.
Top left corner is a snapshot I took on my phone while in the ER with my Aunt.
The elements used on this page is from my Capture Collection.
My thoughts for fellow project lifers on what to do when life gets rough:  
Don't quit. There are bound to be ups and downs as one attempts to document everyday life.  But this year hit a real rough spot.  A mountain my family is facing, prayerfully.  I can only remind myself that as I document this journey in the weeks to come, I will have captured all moments meant to be remembered. While the weeks may be full of emotional times, there are many happy moments as I press through everyday routine. I choose to find and document those!

Please continue to keep my family in your thoughts and prayers.
