Gearing Up

I'm gearing up---ready for the challenge of next week's "Week In The Life" project with Ali Edwards. Yesterday evening I spent a little time picking out paper from my stash and designing some accents to go with the project. I'm going to be making an 8.5" x 11" album and remembered this paper from My Mind's Eye that I purchased a few months back and haven't yet used---perfect for this!

Ali uses a combination of regular page protectors and baseball card protectors and I like that idea, but since I still have some of these photo refill pages for 3.5" x 5" photos, I think I'll use these instead---one for each day.

Finally, I designed some journal cards to use as I jot down thoughts.

These should just fit into the photo slots on the refill pages. Since I haven't done this before, I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted them to say, but decided on a few key phrases. I also made some tags with quotes, phrases and the dates on them that I can use for embellishments.

If you're interested in using these, too, click here to download them in .pdf form right here.
Okay---the camera battery is charging, so it looks like I'm almost ready---just gotta' carve out some time each day to jot down memories!

I'm impressed. I will watch with envy. My life just isn't that exciting.
