Week in the Life - done.

Almost. I will explain later. Anyway, I just wanted to share my project that Ali Edwards and many of us were doing the last week of July. About it being almost done - I did journaling for first three days, but decided to share this project anyway, and finish journaling later. On the pictures of the project it looks like every day has a journaling page -that's because I moved second page for the rest of the weekdays to take pictures. (smart... I know...)

Here is my finished Week in the life project:

I didn't want to upload too many pictures, so I made collages of pages (sorry for the picture quality here).
I tried to make it as simple as possible. And least expensive too. For my divided page protectors I ordered 4x6 photo collages with 2 pictures on each. I used one quote stamp set throughout the whole album and a few punched out tags that I made in Picasa to give it some common thread.
I didn't do the large collage on the right hand side, because I really wanted white paper to see through that divided page protector.

Also, I used only four pieces of patterned paper for the whole thing.

For Saturday I used 2 divided page protectors, since I had way too many pictures I wanted to include. And for Sunday... I left my battery charge at that park, we were on Saturday, and my battery died. So, there were NO pictures taken on Sunday at all. But that didn't stop me from finishing the project. So, I used photos from two previous Sundays - it was close enough.

My album is not very thick, so I plan on adding next WITL project to the same album. (I will probably change the color of it to cream or blue to match interiors).

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you join Ali Edwards next time around, if you haven't done this project this time. Take pictures. Write down little life stories. Record your memories. Share with others. Repeat.

  1. Very nice! Now I wish I would have done it too! Hard to keep up and get it together, but so worth it in the end. This definitely is encouraging me to start planning my DD already, before the business of college starts...

  2. Sounds great! If you do the preparing ahead of time, it will be so much easier to keep up with later. Want more inspiration? Read Ali's post about DD - that's all I ever need to get in the right mood.

    Oh, I think I need to add another piece of paper to your present - Christmas related. :)

  11. Privet iz Philly, girls! That's a very nice book. I should've done one of these for myself for last week when I was so busy moving but that's the problem- I was too busy to take pictures plus the camera was then stored away in a box. Tol'ko pravda mi seichas in Harrisburg, visitin' parents so my privet is from Harrisburg at a moment. Prosto we still haven't had Verizon people to come over to do the internet connection in our apartment, they're really slow. So, yea, I have no internet yet. So annoying.

  13. Definitely, Anya! I will do that once those Verizon people will install the internet for us.
