This month, rather than sharing a layout, I will share my Day in the Life pages. This was my first time participating in, and actually completing this project, and the key to making that happen was keeping it simple. Like, really simple. I added the pages for this project right into my Project Life album. This is also my first year making any progress with Project Life, so all around, 2016 is a good year for pocket scrapbooking and me.
Before I got into my photos I created a title/introductory spread. I cut apart the 3x4 cards from the Simple Stories collection featured in this month's kit. And I used one card from Ali Edwards. I then made a full page with the transparency, just because I think it's cute, and I like the layered look.
The next page contains all of my journaling. Again, for the sake of simplicity, I found it easier to write everything in one place than to design many different spaces for my words. I am pretty sure that if I had not done it this way, I would not have completed this project.
I also had a little theme in mind when I began this day. I wanted to capture all of our comings and goings throughout the day. All the moments where we separate and join together. I think it reflects what life feels like right now. Hectic. Rushed. In and out of our home. But, at the end of the day, we end up together.
The rest of the pages are just photos and an occasional sticker to add a little something, something.
This, to me, is far from perfect. I stopped taking pictures in the early evening, so I did not even record the whole day. But, in a year or two, I will be happy to have the photos I did take, so I am happy to have my imperfect DITL album.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop! Next stop is Kat's blog.
Here is the full line up for today's hop:
