Wrapping up Week In The Life™ today by sharing what Sunday ended up looking like in my album.
What I want to tell you about this album is that I really love it. As I close it up and put it on my shelf, I love the Monday through Sunday look at my life over this one particular week in 2014. I love the depth. I love the focus on the words and photos. I love, love, love that I really went for it with the words this year. I know it will be something I will look back on and be thankful for in the years to come, just like the last nine or so years of doing this project. It makes my heart happy.
You can check out my words and photos from Sunday here.
Here's a look at what I ended up with:
Another variation for the 3x8 page protector - all typed words. I ran this one through my printer like I did on Wednesday, but this time I went with smaller text and a collection of words that tell the story of the photos I didn't take (included in my blog post). "Today" is from the stamp set.
I also just wanted to mention that I love the enlarged photo I started Sunday with - it's such a great representation of this day. People in my kitchen is something that has my heart - my Dad, my sister, Aaron and Woody the dog. They are all doing stuff, chatting, fixing food - in action. These are the kinds of photos I personally love as they really showcase real life in action - my people in action.
On the back of the 3x8 pocket I included a photo of dishes in the sink.
Today I actually ended up with 2, 3x8 inserts - the second one was created by cutting a 4-pocket page protector in half. The main reason I did this is because I didn't have any other photos I felt like including. The gold seven is stapled in the pocket. I added a second 2-inch plastic tab along the edge. I always like adding something like that for these insert-style pages. "Life documented" stamp is from my Photos stamp set.
On the back of this second insert I added the "Sunday" card + a blue star.
On the next page I've got two, 4x6 photos. One I added text directly to the photo and on the other I added a label with stamp and hand-written journaling.
That photo of hand holding is special to me.
I ended my album with a 12-pocket (2x2) page protector. I printed out my 6 inch x 8 inch photo and then cut it up into 2-inch squares. I used the circle stamp + the "this is my life" stamp in the top center square and then added the white circle rub ons onto various other squares.
Thank you so much for joining me on this project this year. I appreciate your support and my main hope is that you got some of your own everyday life stories documented through the process.
