Completed Week In The Life Album

Putting It Together

Now that I have photographed my week, and documented the details, it is time to create the album.
I didn't use any digital templates to format my album (aside from re-sizing photos). I like Ali's use of the large photo and the divided page protector to hold smaller photos and bits of life. My layout for the last page of each day, a collage of photos, is based on her design format. I used the center area to include a quote about life.

For accent paper, I used a paper pad from Hobby Lobby (chosen because I like the color scheme, especially for a summer album). I created some accents and journal cards with PSE. I coordinated the colors to match the paper pad. These were just printed and cut out and added to the pages. I also typed out the quotes to coordinate.

Here is a look at some of the completed pages:

Week In The Life Sunday

I started Week In The Life last Sunday, 7/24, so yesterday was my last day. Since I didn't start the blog in time to post Sunday, I am posting it now. It will appear as the first day in my album.

Sunday starts with church. It is always Mom and I, sometimes Dad or my brother make it into town to go with us.

After church, Mom and I go to Kroger to get groceries. Since she works on weekend, it is time that we can visit while she is in town.

Quick trip home to put away the groceries, and turn on the sprinkler. Mom is going to cook breakfast, and it is Dad's birthday, so I head out there to eat and visit.

We have a good breakfast, and my niece Lizzie is there to join us.

After hanging out a while, I head back home to turn off the sprinkler and do a little housework. In the afternoon, I have some strawberry Kool-Aid and some strawberry bread I picked up at the local Farmer's Market.

The evening is spent relaxing and watching Big Brother, and getting ready for the work week.

That finishes up my Week In The Life project. Tomorrow I hope to make some progress on the album. Photos are ordered and will arrive later this week, then I can put it all together!
