yay i finished it!
The Week in the Life project this year spanned Monday October 27 through until Sunday November 2, and it was a fantastic opportunity to see our daily life in closer detail.
i discovered that even though i feel like our lives don't have much routine these days, that there IS routine to be found in everyday activities
- and with routine comes the opportunity for gratitude
this is the first time using one of Ali's kits
i love what she's done with her new website and i'm so happy to support her 're-branding' and the incorporation of her store. i've purchased and downloaded several of her layered templates and love working with them
i think it was her assistant katie's idea to use the 2 x 2 page for photos, so i ran with that
here i've included a picture of every member of our family with a few words (typed on in photoshop) about each person, i.e. for me i wrote "sue/51/zumba/memory keeping/looking for work
the 3x8 sleeves were awesome
a couple of times during the album i adhered 2 photos together and 'floated' them
the pale blue foam thickers weren't in the kit
i also used ali's idea of getting myself in front of the camera EVERY day, and on wednesday i put my canon 60D on top of two tissue boxes and used the remote to take a picture
here i cut a 3x4 [4 pocket] sleeve in half vertically AND then cut a 4x6 [2 pocket] sleeve in half horizontally. it looks like a 3x4 pocket but it's just two photos printed on the one photo
at the back i used one of the 6x8 sleeves to include memorabilia from the week
(receipts, movie stubs etc)
i'm really happy with it
- and now onto december daily!!!
