Well I am back from my lovely vacation in France. And soon I will be sharing more about that trip. But for today I’m sharing a project I was working on before I left. My Week in the Life Album. Really I followed a lot of Ali’s ideas. And I think for my first year that worked well for me. There are things I did similar to her and things I did totally different. First up is the title page. I knew when I downloaded this picture I wanted to use it. It was the only all of us shot from the whole week and I wanted to use one.
I did a big picture separating each day – ending and beginning. And then added in lots of extra pictures too using the tabs. I liked Ali’s idea of using the Some day and most days and I used a lot of that for my journaling. I didn’t end up with tons of words in here yet. I might add more later, but for now I am just adding bits here and there.
I really liked have the different layers in the album. Totally fun!
I am kind of not loving my handwriting lately. And at the same time I am trying to get over myself and just use it.
With 5 kids I really wanted to try and capture all of them the whole week. That makes for a lot of people to capture! But lots more photo ops I guess.
I got the kit for the week but then also used lots of my other of Ali’s kits that I get from my monthly subscription.
I tried to be IN some of the pictures too. Not always my favorite thing but I am here too. 😉
The little 2×2 pockets threw me for a loop at first, but then I found I liked them. You can add a whole lotta pictures in them.
See, I need more journaling here… but I’ll get to it. For now I want to keep the momentum going I had and finish it. Right after I catch up on my travel laundry!
I love these little pictures of Norah getting ready for nap time. Timers are awesome.
Potty training is SO a part of our life right now.
A few more extra pictures here and there.
Loved getting this shot of my hubby doing something he loves for the final spot on the day.
Mostly done it… I might add little bits here and there and some journaling. Now off to Tuesday!
