Project Life Update: Week 17

Here is week 17
Here is my full layout for week 17.  I added one insert for my Instagram Photo-a-day collage.  (see below).
Left side:  I had so much fun with my new sewing machine this week!  I pretty much washi'd and stitched the heck out of everything.  It's so easy to add just a little something, but it makes a big difference.  (I think?)
See what I mean?!?  A little tape...a little stitching...bam!
I even tried out some of the fancy stitches.  I found that with white thread, it helps to double/triple up on the stitching so it shows up a little bolder.
Right Side:  Met up with an old friend, had a GREAT time catching up, joined the gym, went on a date, then a family breakfast date.  More tape, more stitching.  I am so thankful for my iphone.  It has helped me capture so many of the little things that I would not have photos of!
I love how easy it is to make my own flip up pages with my sewing machine.  Its fun to be able to add a little extra journaling, another photo, or a text message conversation.
And finally, I added a little insert for my April photo-a-day pictures.  I actually did this collage right on my phone and just cropped and printed.  Added some patterned paper, washi tape, letter stickers and done!

Love how your pages have turned out! How were you able to make the collage on your phone - I too have an iPhone yet I don't have a clue how to go about doing something like that!
