Hello there ! How is everyone's Summer coming along ?
I am slowly plugging away at my Week In The Life album. At this point I am almost done with Wednesday. I know most people have finished and shelved their albums already.
Today I want to share with you my Tuesday pages. 12 pages, 19 photos, in all. Not to shabby.
Here is the entry page. I had this fun picture from our night that I wanted to have it span over both pages. Watermelon and the swimming pool were the highlight of our day.
I added in the chipboard divider that came in with the Ali Edwards kit that I purchased. I added the big letter T on the diagonal for a fun look along with some patterned paper to add in some color.
All throughout my album I am adding a lot of white borders to my photos. I love the look that it gives, it gives my album more of a non busy look to it I think. I added a larger border onto my large photo and added in the This Is Tuesday brush from Ali Edwards. I am adding one of these for every day and I love it. It starts off the day perfectly.
Here is a look at the whole photo without the divider.
The kids spent the night swimming while I brought them out watermelon, and other misc foods to eat for dinner. It was lots of fun. I added in a little journaling in the bottom corner.
On the other side is where I did a photo collage. I am adding in one of these each day with a sort of theme to it. Today's theme was " WE DO. " Here is what both sides of it look like.
To create the collage I used one of the templates from Ali Edwards WITL package. I also added in a few embellishments. The photos are of Patrick eating his lunch here at home, me mopping the floor and doing laundry, and going to the school to drop something off and pick up the kids. I believe the days of the week overlay is from one of Becky Higgins overlays that I cut up and stapled on top.
On the other side I have the gold foiled Tuesday card and a photo/story about The Lego game.
Here is the other side.
This whole left side is about getting the mail. You can read more in the journaling here.
I used a journaling card from the Midnight PL edition. Only adding in a strip of washi and the circle piece on top.
Here is the photo of Noah getting the mail. He LOVES to get mail. Always has.
On the other side I have 4 3x4 pockets that I filled with photos and journaling cards.
The other side has more photos and stories.
This is what the whole page looks like. I love how this page created it's own color scheme.
I needed a pic me up that afternoon so a glass of Dr. P to the rescue.
Here is my journaling card.
Let's move to the other side.
This photo is of Katelyn and I working on her school project.
After the kids were done swimming they asked if they could watch a movie while eating their ice cream cones.
The other side has a 3x8 photo and story about Maddie and fruit skewers. She has a sweet heart.
I added some photos of the kids in the pool on the other side. I used another Ali Edwards template for this one.
Here is what the last page of Tuesday looked like.
I loved this photo of Noah in the pool so much that I made it large and added it in.
That is the last page of Tuesday. Wednesday is almost done. I have one more page left to finish and then I can share it. The kids and I have been staying very busy this summer. Lots of fun to be had. Thanks for being patient with me and the old blog.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. It was rather a short post. Thanks everyone !
