Week In The Life™ 2015 | Wednesday In Album

I think we might need to consider a bigger spine for next year's album - this one is going to be a tight fit. 

Even though I'm pretty good at editing things out, I want all this in there (mainly what I included in my blog posts for each day). Right now I'm just going with it and we'll see how it shakes out, knowing that I do usually have less photos as the week progresses. 

Here's a look at Wednesday: 

I love the juxtaposition of this image of Anna with the one I took of myself last year (ended up trimming that one to 3x8 - you can see it in this post here). 

I'm pretty much following along with the formula I set up on Monday that includes words on photos, the perforated word strips, and index tabs. 

I was thinking that I'd have less 4x6 photo inserts for this day but it didn't work out that way. I considered leaving out a few photos and then just added them in anyway. 

I actually love looking at this and seeing all those words. They aren't profound or perfect - they are just real observations about who and what and why and where and when of our lives right now. 

I did end up making some word art for those of you who were asking for something along the lines of what I've been handwriting onto these day of the week cards: 

New digital word art now available: I, We, You

One thing I noticed on this day in particular is that I got a lot of self-portraits. I think they seem to be sticking out more to me because of the green Ireland t-shirt. 

The photos, man, I love them. 

They actually made me a little teary as I looked through them and worked them into the album today - something about back to school and the passage of time and simply how much I'm enjoying my kids right now. 

Following my initial formula I added a pattern card again before the last full page image. 

The ampersand is from my silver chipboard set available here

That last photo must be blown up. Those faces are priceless.

    I'm a BIG FAN of a bigger spine for next year. I had to move my WITL to one of the bigger SC handbooks, but no regrets. I'll use this smaller album for something else, but DEFINITELY, I vote for a bigger spine for next year! Love your work!

    I was thinking of a bigger spine as well but only so I could combine WITL years. Ever thought of being able to order the kits without an album for this reason.
