A Week in Our Life - Sharing Project Album

Title Page - created with the patterned papers that are used in the album.


Living for Today - Journaling page for each day of the week, kept this simple with one strip of patterned paper at the margin, day and date at the bottom of each jouranling page. Self-portrait taken on each day of the week. I made a monogram for each day of the week and used it as a tab to divide the days.(here, "S" is for Sunday, the first day of my project week) I also cut a slit in the page protector so the monogramed tab could hang out over the edge. Each monogramed tab is made to match journaling strip along the margin on the opposite page.


Each day of the week has a two-page "collage-style" layout. Each picture is matted on black. I liked this style because it accommodates those days when I took many pictures or only had a few.


That is the "formula" that I used for each day of the week.

Thanks to Ali, the mastermind....thanks to friends that joined me on this project. It was an awesome journey to take with you. I'm glad to have created this little memory of a week in my life. A week in "our" life too!

AWESOME, Reenie!! I love the collage of photos. What a great idea. You are always so fast at completing these projects. Kudos to you! I, on the other hand, have a million half done projects in my room. :(
