I'm back! My Week in the Life Album

Sorry I have not posted in Dad was very ill and then went to be with our Lord on April 15th. You can read all about it on my other blog in the post if you want to. I have been doing a few layouts here and there and lots of cards for friends and family that were so kind through everything that was going on with my Dad. I will get them posted eventually.....but today.....I am really excited to share with you my Week in the Life Album!
If you follow Ali Edwards you know she runs this on her blog and this is the first time I have been able to participate and I am so glad I did!
This album was such fun.......during the week and all the picture taking right down to putting it all together and journaling it all! I am thrilled with how it came out!
I used a We R Memory keepers 8.5/11 album and purchased some of Ali's products from Designer Digitals. I made my own templates in PSE8 and used those for the collages. I decided to do a hybrid album and used pattern paper and some flower embelly's to liven it up. Mostly it is about the photos and the journaling. It is well worth the time it takes to document a week in your life.....
