Week in the Life 2015: Friday

Fri-yay! IMG_1149001

Last chance to capture some of the details of our Monday-Friday life. All the usual stuff like driving to summer day camp, daycare, what work life looks like and the start of our weekend made it into this spread.

At this point, I’m running low on page protectors, I’m out of traditional index tabs, and my typed notes for journaling have dropped off to nil. Just means I have to get a bit more creative!

It wasn’t intentionally planned, but I love the way all the layers of my inserts turned out. In place of index tabs, I used chipboard strips, labels, and stitched on a folded over strip of journaling (you’ll see it in more detail a little further down).

The first insert is a shot of Liam and Emily heading into school with their backpacks. Liam usually races ahead and Emily and I follow behind, carrying his.

On the right side, I had a little fun playing with another one of Christine Herrin’s freebie journaling cards. It’s like a mini-layout (app 4.5 x 6) of me working on the computer (a work from home day). I cut a label in half and attached it to the edge in place of a traditional index tab here (along with a bit of stitching).

At the end of the day, we kicked off the weekend by picking up a pizza and heading to the park for a picnic dinner and some play time. The kids were way more interested in playing than eating dinner…and chasing the seagulls trying to steal our pizza. I trimmed down a page protector with 2×2 squares and printed out a strip of journaling, then stitched it to the edge.  The photos are sized 1.9 x 1.9, front one’s are Liam playing and Emily’s on the back.

The strip is folded over with journaling on the front and back. It’s hard to see in this photo, but there are transparent letters (from Studio Calico’s Wink Wink Scrapbook Kit) tucked into the pockets alongside the photos that are fun and playful   🙂

Sometimes, Liam takes his big brother role very seriously. He likes to push her on the swings, and she loves to swing. Win-win!

After dinner, we went to visit with friends for an outdoor movie night…

and the kids were totally zonked, falling asleep in the car on the way home. Great way to spend a Friday night!

Here’s a clearer look at all of those inserts.
