My Week in the Life 2012 album is complete! I ordered it as an 8×8 photo book from Shutterfly last night.
I decided to keep each of my days to 2 pages – a main photo with the banner title on the first page and a photo collage with journaling on the second page. Honestly, I had six of the seven main photos selected before I realized Dylan was in every one which helped me picked the final one (Tuesday – not a lot of good & good quality photos that day). He might as well be in them all. 🙂
The photo of the fire engines was taken by Dylan using my point & shoot camera. I altered the template text box to note that. It was important to me to include a bit from his view of the week.
Following the “day pages” – I took inspiration from a Week in the Life closing page shared by Kristen W on Flickr. I liked the idea of a count of various parts of the week. Ours includes our ages; Dylan’s stats (weight, height & clothing sizes); amount spent on groceries, gas, movies; number of miles walked; temperature fluctuations; etc. Across from it, I created a page with corresponding photos.
Finally, since our week was unusual in several respects, I decided to finish the album with a spread documenting a “typical” weekday in our home right now since I’m sure by the next time we do this, it will have changed.
