Day in the Life 2016

Posted on

This year I decided to play along with Ali Edwards Day in the Life. Wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it but I snapped away and journaled it in the Day One app on my phone.

I’ve finally decided to add it to my Week in the Life album. And going with the simplest and quickest option I could I made some 4×6 photo collages using the Project Life app and printed them out.

and with the journaling flip pocket.

The Day in the life graphic came from Ali Edwards, everything else is Project Life. Journaling card made by me using a Project Life grid card, washi tape, Studio Calico roller stamp and some stickers (can’t remember the brand)

Pocket Talk

So tonight I actually got a night full of scrapping! Hubby was out at a mates playing Dungeons and Dragons, Miss K has swimming lessons then stays the night with my parents and Miss A was in bed early (& actually slept!!!)

When I scrapbook I love listening to music or recently it’s been podcasts. I love Paperclipping Round Table but it’s only monthly now and I was all caught up on those so I decided to google scrapbook podcasts. I saw a few familiar names on a podcast called Pocket Talk so I thought I’d give it a listen.

I’m glad I did. It’s really interesting listening to others who pocket scrapbook and how they approach their pages. It’s hosted by Jess, a Canadian blogger and memory keeper and is released every 2 weeks. Since I have a few weeks to catch up on I shouldn’t run out listening for awhile.
