Week In The Life™ 2014 | Saturday In Album

As you've seen so far with my Week In The Life™ spreads, my approach was to tackle the words with a slightly different focus or "lead-in words" each day. 

The idea for "Saturdays are for" actually came about as I was developing content from my Story Stamp™ classroom for the Daily theme. I love the idea of using a "this day is for" prompt for either stories about today or about the past. What were Saturdays like when I was a kid? Specific activities? Hanging out around the house? Sports? Working in the yard? Hot dogs and coke for lunch? I love that once the question is presented I'm flooded with a variety of different memories of different times in my life. 

You can see/read my Saturday words and photos post here

Here's a look at how I brought my words and photos from this one Saturday in 2014 all together in my album: 

For my journaling I literally started every section with the phrase "Saturdays are for..." and used digital word art from this set (that includes each day of the week in singular and plural):  These Days Are For

The enlarged photo I used is the one of Simon looking at the field at the football game. It's absolutely a personal favorite of mine for the year. 

I addition to starting all the journaling sections that way I decided to print a large version of the word art onto the 3x8 timeline card. It's a nice balance with all the word-heavy sections from this day to have something without a lot of words. I added one single blue star as an accent + added the plastic tab like I've done on all previous days + stamped "stories" from the kit. 

On the back I used the photo of Simon and my sister that I love, love, love from when we were walking into the Oregon football game. 

Next up are three 3x4 photos + the day title card + the gold embossed #6. 

I really like filling these pockets with photos, especially as I look back on them now. Little bits of our life, all right here in this one book. 

I added the blue and gold star chipboard piece right above my words. 

The last spread of the day includes more photos from the football game. 

I really love that a project like this can be such a great reflection of the big and little stuff of life. Being able to see that all together in one place gives such a nice perspective on our lives - we are a mix of all of it. 

Life is good.

    Your work is so awesome. I always tell my husband that you are the Tiger Woods of scrapbooking so he will understand how good you are. I do have a question though - what size font do you use?

      In this album I went really small - I think it was 8 or 9 (font is Remington Noiseless).

    Dangit. This day totally made me well up when you told it originally on your blog. And boy did it bring on the waterworks big time seeing it in the album. That photo of Simon cheering just makes me want to jump and clap with him. I love the way you've told the story of the day and given highlights without being tripped up by chronology.
