week in the life 2012 | tuesday

Now two days in…I wasn’t sure if I’d end up with enough photos today, and then pleasantly surprised to see I had too many! I’m not taking the same crazy amount I have in the past for Week in the Life—and that’s okay—but I almost feel like I could’ve done the whole album.


So without further ado, day 2:


(Taken with my phone at 10pm. So my apologies for the crappy photo.)

Again I printed my “title” for the day using this kit from Ali Edwards on a sheet of patterned paper. I tried to get creative in PSE last night & then gave up. It’s just so easy to print black on patterned paper. (And it was time for me to get back to IEP report writing!)

I added a few sentiments in PSE, and a few label stickers (October Afternoon & Jillibean Soup). Today I also included two Instagram photos (I seriously love that app!). I opened them up in PSE, dropped them onto a sheet of grid patterned paper (cropped to 2.5” x 3.5”), added a drop shadow (thanks Design Editor for that idea!), and voila! Finally I added a bit of journaling and then I was done!

On a side note…yesterday I received a comment about how I’d actually printed my photos already…this is a rarity for me! I have a “photo” printer but I rarely print at home. However, I liked that I could complete each daily layout that day while working on December Daily a few months ago. So I decided to use up some 4”x6'” photo paper I’ve had sitting around. I find with projects like this (and DD), if I don’t do it every day, I don’t do it at all. Like my Week in the Life from last summer that is still just hundreds of photos in a file on my computer and a box of memorabilia.
