Week In The Life : Reader Submissions Part One

So many great Week In The Life project images have been sent my way the last couple of weeks. Some paper, some digital, and some that really cool mixture of both. One of the biggest things I love to see is the variety of people,
places, countries, situations, lifestyles, phases of life, etc of the people
participating in this project. Thanks to everyone who has shared their
work with me both through email and on the Flickr

Stay tuned for more samples tomorrow.

    I agree Betsy. It's been so much fun, cool and inspiring doing this and knowing that at the same time so many others are doing it as well. I am so glad I didn't put this off as "something to do in the future".

    It's amazing to see how everyone's joined in and to see this variety in results. It's an amazing worldwide time capsule.
    Love the different styles and I love Jess's album; the photos are exquisite!

    I love getting to see all these amazing examples! I can't wait to spend some time on each of the blogs exploring more. And thank you so much for featuring my pages, Ali :)

    I second that!!! Ali is sharing her talent and has inspired me to change the way I scrap. I never wanted to start the fancy type of scrapbooking but now I love what I'm doing as it's mainly pictures+words which I love.

    What a lovely story Katie, I wish I remembered all the little things like this when my kids were little. Now I record all the little things about my grankids as my daughter is overwhelmed with a child with a disability so I do it for her.
    Love your album.

    Ali, I love looking at this year's collection of albums - they seem like they have more "everyday living" pictures. Candids and visions of day-in and day-out "stuff". Feels like a piece of their lives frozen in time.

    Jess's pages look very interesting. I would love to see more of her work!!

    I love the different styles. Different takes on the same project.
    It's very freeing to not have to run out and buy a certain embellishment or paper but rely on photos and journaling to tell the story. It's not always about the latest greatest and cutest "stuff" but telling the story and letting the words and pictures shine.

    Love the examples. They make me happy as does completing this project! I never thought that documenting my ordinary life would be so fun, but there it is. The little things I want to write down so I don't forget. I love this project. I have almost finished Sunday so will keep going and hope to show you sometime...

    These are so great- I love seeing a little bit of everyone's albums!
    Thanks so much for featuring mine as a part of it. And mostly, thank you for sharing your ideas and creativity- you are an inspiration to me!

    I love looking at everyone's variations! This project has really changed the way I think of documenting my life! Thanks so much for including my Week In the Life!

    Ali, On your first page using the 8x10 photo, are you resizing the photos to 8X10 vertical from your horizontal photo? Trying to figure out the best way to get 8 X 8.5 photos from my horizontal photos, without cropping out too much. Thanks for any advice.

    Love it! So inspirational. I didn't do WITL yet, but I really want to now. I bought the 8.5x11 WITL templates and am loving them! I LOVE multi-photo layouts and these have been great for scrapping big events like vacations. PLEASE do more 8.5x11 multi-photo templates!!!

    Hi Ali,
    Love what everybody did with the WITL. So many different takes of the same concept.
    I made Dutch templates for my WITL. I can't find how to submit them so I post a link.
    I didn't have time and light to make pictures of all the pages yet ass I have a lot of pages some days. (coudn't choose what pictures to use and lots of journaling.)
    Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    OK...I'm inspired by Elle! I bought those "In The Week" cards for NEXT YEAR's week...along with the monthly cards. With a new baby in the house, I think simple will be better than this year's attempt (took photos, bought album, doing post-week journaling now - is that allowed? - but CLEARLY not going to be finished within a 2 week time period!)
    I can do this! I can do this! I can do this!!!!!
    Love all the examples! Very inspiring! Thanks!!!

    Oh wow they are all so gorgeous and so inspiring! I really feel like running off and doing this project again - I did it a little over a year ago, it was tough but rewarding. You can see my album here:

    You are a great mother (and grandmother!) for scrapbooking for your daughter!

    I love looking at everyones books. I didn't get to do one this year but I am still looking at all the books. Everyone is so creative.

    THANKS everyone for posting yours and getting me to finally figure out how to photograph mine!! love the way everyone's turned out!

    seeing all of the different albums is very poignant and inspiring. Plus, it shows that just because you use a store bought template doesn't mean your album will not turn out very unique.

    Love this project so I'm trying it myself this week :) Taking notes all the time and taking pictures. Looking forward to when I'm going to put it all in an album.
    (I've put some of my pictures from the last days in my norwegian blog and a link to your blog)

    Ali, I can't thank you enough for your ideas and inspiration in this project. What a great gift this will be for my kids when they grow up - and I would not have done it without you.
