I created a simple title page using the digital versions of Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love line (then accidentally let the printer print on "Draft" -- oh, well.) I thought this little quote was perfect for this project.
Each day features an 8 x 12 photo, a strip of patterned paper, and the date.
I used a 6 x 12 page protector to house the journaling on one side and a strip of matching patterned paper on the other side. I like how this looks when the page is turned (seen in the above photo.)
I then used a 4x6 page protector to house additional pictures that represent daily events and routines.
Then the next day is done in reverse: it begins with the 4x6 pictures (on the other side of the page protector shown above), then you see the 6x12 strip of paper in that size page protector, the journaling on the other side, and the 8x12 picture with date on the next right-facing page. I used that alternating pattern throughout. At the end I had one side of a photo page protector empty, so cut 4x6 pieces of patterned paper to fill those slots.
I'm still pondering how I will do this year's Week in the Life. I might use the same format. . . or do it digitally. . . better decide soon!
