Recently, I've been paying closer attention to the albums that my kids spend time reading. I've noticed that they spend time reading books about "when I was a baby" and a lot of albums about our daily happenings.
The album that they read a lot is the album I titled "Spend a Week with Us." I stumbled upon Ali Edwards, "A Week in the Life" and I loved the concept! I printed the forms out to record our daily routine and I got started. I documented our week and then a few weeks later I got organized and put the album together. I was trying to remember if I did the project at the same time as Ali Edwards did hers but I honestly can't remember. I loved doing the project but I remember being surprised at how hard it was to keep up with it. I got caught up in doing our daily routine and I forgot to write down what we were doing and take photos. While I was putting the album together I noticed that I had a ton of information at the beginning of the week and then toward the end of the week I didn't have as much information or as many photos. Because my kids love that album so much and because after reading the last album I realized that our daily routines have changed so much, I've decided to do do another album titled "Spend a Week with Us".
This time I'm approaching the project a little differently and
- Binder (I chose a 6x8 album)
- Sheet protectors (depending on the album you chose)
- journaling cards
- pen (or 2 or 12) American Crafts Precision Pens are my favorite
- Date Stamp
- letter stickers
- washi tape
- 2-3 sheets of white cardstock
- 4-6 sheets of patterned paper
Project Life Album, 6 by 8-Inch, Pink Lattice and page protectors. I love how the album goes perfectly with the Home+Made Collection. I also grabbed the 6x6 Paper Pad . I thought the 6x6 paper pad would be perfect to cut into journaling cards and accent pieces.
