As I mentioned previously, I’m going to be doing “Week in the Life”. I’m excited for it. So, I figured, since I’m not going to be posting the pictures I take today in the actual blog until tomorrow, I’d share how I’m going to do the “Week in the Life” challenge.
I mentioned I was going to blog them, but I’m also going to scrap them! I’m planning on doing a tw0-page theme for all seven of the days, regardless of how many pictures I take. Some days probably won’t have all of the pictures used, but I’m hoping to use a good chunk of them.
I’m going to share some of my favorite products that might get used for them. I’m going to go along the lines of more standard designs, because it’s easier to find the room for the journaling!
This is just a small selection of what I’d be using. You can find all of them at Gingerscraps. The particular designers I’ve shown in these previews are Seatrout Scraps, Unforgettable Moments, M&M Designs, Connie Prince, and Pretty in Green. I tried to link to the individual products, but every time I’d try, WordPress would wig out on me (or Firefox), so I gave up. But the designers have an amazing collection of templates that is definitely worth checking out!
I’m not going to link up to all of the possible kits for the Week in the Life project, because there’s way too many. I also honestly don’t even know what’s going to happen during the week! Gingerscraps has an amazing amount of kits to choose from, especially in the Project 365/52 section! If you want more, you can check out the layouts I’ve done. They’re in the Scrapbooking section.
Are you doing Week in the Life? I’d love to know, so I can follow you around, too! I really love things like this!

Good Night by the GS designers
Courageous by Pretty in Green
Sunday: There was a Pack Swim Day at the pool. Everyone was exhausted, including Josh. Poor guy! Six days of 9-11 hours of work, and then again, all day at the pool!
Monday: I did my nails in a beach-y theme. Sky blue and gold glitter. Looked like water meets ocean.
Tuesday: I’m not in the shape I’d like to be, but I’m learning to accept the shape that I have.
Wednesday: The truck thought that it was the perfect time for a heart attack. Went off when I restarted, thankfully!
Thursday: Last day of swim lessons for Ethan. He passed Level 2 this time, but refused the diving board!
Friday: A nice long oatmeal bath soak does wonders for my itchy skin!
Saturday: Long days, early mornings, late nights. They catch up with you after awhile! Continue reading →
January has come and gone. The year is one-twelfth over.
Is it just me or is the year already just FLYING by?
Well, as usual, a new month means a new Buffet. But this month, Ginger made a few changes. It’s the anniversary of the first ever Buffet being done by the Gingerscraps Designers, so they all did different packs for each of the Buffet, a whole huge SMORGASBOARD of things
ALSO! EVERYTHING in the Buffets are for ONE-DOLLAR! That’s right!! $1!! Can you BEAT that? Probably only if it was free
If you buy ten packs, though, you DO get free! The Free-With-Purchase kit! It’s awesomely AMAZING!

Sunday: Pinewood Derby time. Ethan came in third for his den! So proud of my little guy! Monday: I made a hybrid! It’s a cookie box, perfect for any Geek!! The kiddos also both had a sick day. Tuesday: I don’t even. Josh was home. Madison ended up having to stay home, for the fever. Wednesday: The day started beautifully but ended on a not so happy note. Madison had a majorly bad day at school. Thursday: I got the cutest, most adorable snail in the mail. I call him Snailmail. I love him! Friday: Field Trip day. It was SO nuts, but it was nice, too. Got to meet neighbors and talk to other parents. I really did enjoy the day. Saturday: Morning was an early start, because the Monkey had Girl Scouts, but we had to meet at the fire station at 2:30. Madi actually rode with Michelle back to the church, because I couldn’t stay, because I had to be there for the Daisies!
