Week in my Life Project


Several bloggers followed Ali Edwards as she did a project challenge on her blog several weeks ago. I have seen the idea years ago on her blog and thought, I would love to attempt that! My first week of August was to be a "back to school" mode and part of our lives that I would like to document anyways. So let us give it a good ole try, eh?
I kept my camera around me all the time at the beginning of the week and slowly I forgot it a couple of times. I tried to take several pictures of events of the day and then just selected the photos that I wanted to showcase on the pages in the end. I kept the layout simple and themed with my fav Sweet Details Designer Series Paper colors of Crumb Cake, Daffofil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, Baha Breeze, and Very Vanilla. The page on the left in filled with the paper while the right side has all the juicy stuff. You can click on the images to enlarge.

 




 



 I got to play around and learn more about how to use my camera. I learned how to journal better.  I got to see from all angles how to see my life in details. Overall, this was really a fun project to do and I highly recommend that you give it a try!

Now, what do I do with this? I would love to have a little paperback scrapbook of this but I can not print it in a photobook thru SU cause it is only 15 pages. So I could print in 8.5x11 individual pages and bind somehow together myself?  Help! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is my idea - do the same thing with each of the girls - let them do a week in their lives and make those be the additional pages in the book - like chapters - and maybe Harold will do it too. Then you will have enough to print a book and it will have a chapter for each of you.
