Week in the Life – The put-together for Friday 9/13

I did not take too many pictures today…OK, that’s kind of relative to the average person but for the purposes of this project, 59 is not a lot.  My inner art director decided to go with just a two page spread today and only include the best photos of the bunch.  Quick annotations on the collage page (and the “p” alliteration was completely by accident)  Quiet average day, errands, chores, soccer, a girls crafting and a yummy beer to end the day !

Week in the Life – The put-together for Thursday 9/12

Am steaming along now because I just found out that Persnickety Prints is having a print sale on SATURDAY!  (squeeee!) and I want to have these all done and uploaded so I can take advantage of the sale.  In looking over the pictures today, there was one or two stories and the rest felt kind of dis-jointed…hence, the blow-ups of the morning kitchen !  Lots of crafting today with my partner in crime Sara and the girls making Rainbow Loom bracelets…the dogs even had a playdate and poor Shadow didn’t move off of the sofa the entire day!

Week in the Life – The put-together for Wednesday 9/11

Finally got this day done.  I realized after I pulled everything together, I didn’t have anything that captured the fact that it was September 11th, and the anniversary of the attacks.  I decided that it was what it was and not to try and make up stuff that I didn’t document.  I had some beautiful early morning flag photos that I took when I got up that morning but I had already used similar ones in a previous layout…so here is Wednesday, half day for the girls, super hot day….I’m having fun coming up with mini themes for a row of pictures which I’m really liking.

Week in the Life – The put-together for Tuesday 9/10

Well, I managed to pull this together in less than two hours including helping child with her homework AND watching Project Runway (squeeee!!)

I felt like a had a weird collection of photos for Tuesday, there were hardly any photos of people, mostly shots around the house and lots of the world while running errands.  So, I told seven stories.  View from the front porch, Sue, Dog, Nighstands, Project, Farm Co-op and Library.  It took a day of mulling it over to figure out how to work the photos into vignettes but I feel pretty good about it!

Excellent!  Thanks for coming by!!  If you’re doing Week in the Life this year, how are you doing putting your layouts together?

slow and steady…

Or just slow…

Well, we know what the road to heck is paved with…

My intention for assembling my Week in the Life layouts was to tackle, one day from last week, this week.  Alas, it is Thursday and this is as far as I’ve gotten on Tuesday…
