Last week I gathered photos and stories to participate in the annual memory keeping extravaganza known as Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life™. The last time I did this project—and the only time—was back in 2010.
I had a lot of fun with it for the first four days or so, then I got a little lazy. It happens.
I’m going to print my pages at Persnickety Prints, then pop them into a Simple Stories album. Neat and tidy.
Today I’m sharing the first few days of the album. As I finish the rest, I’ll post them, too!
I used this template set to create my own journal cards and then cut apart Ali’s dates to use as well. This created a simple repetition from the first page from each day.
I used the Archer font for my journaling and shot 75% of the images using my iPhone 6.
I also wore my new Costco sweat shirt thingie for at least three days. In fact, I have it on as I type. Side note: it is the SOFTEST thing ever.
I worked on each set of pages within a day of the day in question. I knew that if I didn’t jot down some notes, I’d forget stuff. I could have taken notes, but I was too lazy. So I just typed up from memory before it was gone.
I try to be as truthful as I can on projects like this. What’s really going on in my life, that sort of thing. Right now, there’s a lot revolving around finances and big life changes. And so it goes.
More pages coming as I finish ’em.
You can still join in and do this project! Maybe the official time frame has passed, but weeks keep coming, right? Learn more today on Ali’s blog!
