I wanted to share a recent layout I made for Write.Click.Scrapbook. Our topic for May was to scrap a day in our life. I've done one of those long and involved ones with minute by minute detail before so I wanted to do something more general and fun this time around.
Here's what I ended up with:
I used the Jonathan Mini Chipboard Numbers for different hours of the day and the awesome Kraft Mini Tags for my journaling. I attached photos to as many of the events as I could and used the coloful Microfelt Arrows to make sure the photos, times and tags all matched each other. Then I used the Jonathan Mini Alphabets (my favorite!) and two Brackets for my title. And finally a Kraft Calendar to make sure I would remember the month I put my layout together. Once I laid it all down on my paper and arranged it to my liking, I attached the tags lighly and then stitched through them just to add more texture and fun.
And there you go, a typical day in my life. Here's the journaling:
7. After breakfast at 6am, we take David to the bus so he can go to school. 8. Then it’s time for me to exercise. Treadmill and nike+ for 2.8 miles. 9. After the morning exercise I take my peace time which is also breakfast. Coffee with graham crackers (but no chocolate.) If I am lucky I can also get in some quiet journaling time. 10. While I do all this Nathaniel plays quietly and reads books. Then it’s time for work. Lately it’s all about dev releases. 12. If it’s a weekend, we take this time to do a family shot. I love these. 3. David is ready to pick up at 2:45 so when we come home we read books together. 4. Then he works on his workbooks. Most days it’s reading, writing, or math. He really likes doing them. 5. Then it’s time to write the gratitude journal. One sentence. 5. If it’s Sunday, we have family night, if not it’s playtime. 6. The kids go to bed at six so I process the daily photos. 8. And finally it’s time for some art. I get a few quiet hours and then it’s time for bed around 10pm. I love my simple life.
Here's one closeup for you:
If you haven't played with the Kraft Tags yet, I cannot recommend them enough!!
Thank you for letting me share my layout and have a wonderful Monday!
