A Week in the Life

So, here it is...50 pages later... the completed album. I used an 8.5x11 leather 3-ring binder. I began the album with a little calendar transparency. I found these Little Yellow Bicycle transparencies that fit with the theme so perfectly. You'll find them scattered throughout the album.
I decided to write a note to my readers, and I did it across a blank page of journaling blocks, just for fun. I began each new day with an 8x10 black and white photo. I put a gray strip of pp along one edge with a letter sticker indicating the day of the week.

My album started on Wednesday and ended on Tuesday, so this is day one...

I have some scattered 8.5x11 layouts using pics from each day as well. Then I have between 1-3 pages of baseball card (wallet size) pic holders. I scattered pics with blank pieces of pp, journaling blocks and embellies. Since the majority of the album is on black, white or gray pp, I added at least one red embellie on each page.

This is where Day Two begins...
On day two I also started adding a collage of pics from that day. (I don't remember why I didn't create a collage for Day One, but there was some good reason. LOL). So, after the b&w photo, I put the collage.

Day Three...(sorry that it's blurry, but I took so many pics, I didn't feel like retaking the ones that turned out blurry). Just deal, okay?

I loved doing this project and can't wait to do it again next year!


  1. I can't wait to see this album!! I want to flip throught and read it. What a treasure! Do u think you'll do the same exact week next year. Or will u choose a different time of the year??

  2. OMGosh!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I like how you mixed the sb layouts into the album, what a super idea! This was SO much fun and looking at yours and watching Candi start her week makes me want to do it again, lol!!
