Credits: Everything that I used is available at DesignerDigitals.com and everything except the paper on the digital collages is Ali Edwards. The patterned paper in the collages is Michelle Martin.
I have been a blog hermit for the last couple of days. On Friday night and most of the day Saturday I worked on my layouts. I decided last week that I was NOT going to reinvent the wheel for the collages. I LOVE Ali’s templates for this year’s Week in the Life and I decided that I would use her collage templates for my “page 4” layout. I used various brushes for the Page one “Daily Intro” as she called them. Finally, I decided to print the baseball card photos and the 8.5x5 photos. The collage pages I did the same thing that Ali did and uploaded them to scrapbookpictures.com on Saturday night and ordered them. I used Making Memories paper for my “page 1” layout. And I love that I was able to incorporate my messy/hurried writing on my layouts. It was great fun journaling everyday. I put all my pages in a cheap binder for now while I decide where I want to put them. I have a 12x12 binder for my last 2 years of Week in the Life and will probably put this year’s week in there as well.
My baseball card protector pages.
Collage page for Saturday. I decided to use the outline dates/days to add something to the collage.
Elizabeth’s coloring page.
Bryan’s rainbow created with the new paint pens.
Sunday’s collage of photos.
Baseball card size photos.
Monday’s collage photos.
So-the reason that I was awol for a couple of days has to do with this book:
I picked it up on our way to the gym on Sunday morning. I read it most of Sunday. Then I finished it at midnight on Monday night. That is why I wasn’t blogging :)
Have a great Wednesday!
