    I love seeing everyone's finished pages/albums! I'm still trying to figure out the details on mine and how I want to do this project... seeing all the others is helping me narrow my ideas. Thanks for sharing!

    Karen - I don't think most of the ones with two holes have page protectors on top of them (many of the minibooks out today are built with chipboard bases where you just adhere your photo on top and punch the holes). The chipboard makes it more stable as a page...but I often will just adhere two photos back to back and add those in as a page.

    They all look so great!
    Makes me want to create :)
    Ali, I just had a question that I hope you can help me with. I purchased you "fresh fonts" cd & for some reason I can't get access (or just don't know how to use) your "ali-isms". (which is the main reason I bought the cd!, hahaha) I went on the support page, but can't seem to see what's wrong.
    Thanks so much in advance,

    Thanks for continuing to publish the LO's. I too am still in the process of putting mine together. It's really helpful to see them all and get such wonderful inspiration from them!

    Hi Ali!
    Thank you again for sharing examples and for this interesting project. And of course, for displaying some of my pictures! so exciting!
    I have a response for Janet...I just added a text layer in Photoshop directly on my picture. Nothing more. If you need more explanations, you can email me. I'd be glad to help you! (some more pictures in my blog too.)
    hugs to all,

    Thank you for sharing this project. I'm enjoying seeing other people's days and lives and all the different languages.
    I had my second baby a few weeks ago and It's made me realise how important the little things are. I've decided to do the project a little differently and so a different day each week for the next seven weeks (that way I can keep on top of things!). My first pages are here: http://littlemissscrapper.blogspot.com/2008/10/day-in-our-lives.html
    Thanks :D

    These examples are great! I have been looking for a binder like the one Laura used. Does anyone know who makes these?

    I totally love seeing everyones ideas on this too. It's been fun.
    Thanks Ali for taking the time to go through my album and post a few pages and even provide a link to my album. :) I'll keep checking back to see everyone elses pages as they get them completed too. :) Can't wait to see what else is created.

    Ali-thank you so much for all of the examples and for your best advice of all: figure out a formula. My own personal, modified version has come together so easily, and I have so enjoyed my time spent from beginning to (almost)end. I'm sure it will become one of my most favorite projects! Laura

    ok, ali. i just HAVE to ask... is it weird seeing your own handwriting all over people's work? i mean people that you don't know... and i don't mean weird in a bad way. just makes you smile kind of weird.

    Thanks so much for including my page on your blog! What a trip it is to see it here. :) I love seeing everybody's take on the project. I'm thinking this is going to turn into a yearly project for me.

    Ali, thanks so much for sharing all these wonderful examples with us. They are very motivating. I planned to do the project along with you but got sick along with my kids on that Monday. Spent the week playing nurse instead. But now I'm pumped to get into it this next week. Thanks for such an awesome inspiring site. -jill

    To Amie - Laura's album looks like a Maya Road one I have but I'm not sure. Try that at least and see if you spot something you like.

    These are all so beautiful and amazing. Thanks so much for sharing them with us. :)
    I've completed my album, and posted the pages on my blog here:
    I borrowed many, many design elements from last year's CKU version.
    Can't thank you enough, Ali.

    Oh, how I love these pages! I just started yesterday. For the first time - after looking at these - I'm considering digital scrapbooking! So thanks for the inspiration!!!

    "What you are most looking forward to during the upcoming holiday season."
    This year has seen some upheaval and major challenges for my family. What I’m looking forward to this holiday season is to re-connect with those family members who’ve drifted away for various reasons and also to reinvigorate ourselves…to recover and be thankful for what’s good in ourselves and those we care about.

    Oh man the holidays....I need to go home and make my daughters Halloween costume tonight and I still sit at work. I look forward to hearing from friends and family who I haven't heard from over a year. My goal is to actually send out cards this year. I have a lot of transition in my life since my Mom got sick and died. My daughter and I have moved about every 2 years since 2002 so I am hoping to be settled for awhile even if it is back in my family home, living with my Father.
    I actually found Christmas presents 2 nights ago that my Mom had hid away before she got sick. They are clothes for the American Doll "Bitty Baby". Even though my daughter and niece are now in 6th grade and a little old for "dollies" I am going to give them each 1 last Christmas present from Grandma this year. I wonder who will cry more, me or my sister-in-law? Happy Halloween All!
