august 2014 (and may 2014) layouts (pocket memory keeping / project life)

What kind of wacky post is this? August and May layouts of the previous year? Yup. I'm doing things all out of order, but there's a rhyme and reason to my madness. It all makes sense in my head anyway. ;)

I had shared layouts up until April of 2014. Then I shared my summer 2014 book, which covered June to part of August. I skipped right over May.

These are the layouts in my big 12x12" book. I recapped our summer break:

The entirety of our summer break is in my summer 2014 book.
(See our stay at The Saguaro Palm Springs this past summer here).

I also documented the rest of August:

(See my dad's Dodgers themed 50th birthday celebration here).

I usually document one, 12x12" page spread for most weeks (as opposed to the 2 page spreads that most do). For birthdays and special occasions, I don't limit myself to a one page layout, but yeah. Most weeks it is one page.

I'm not sharing a few of my layouts from May. It was the last few weeks of school, so there are lots of friends and teachers in those pictures. To respect their privacy, I'm not sharing them here.

Now I've shared up until August. Next week, I will be sharing a few more layouts. Then maybe, just maybe, I'll get to my 2015 book in 2015. !!! ;)
