A Peek In My Week

I finished up a project from one of my CKC Mesa Classes which was called "A Peek Into My Week" It was a mini album for a week in your life. The class was taught by Elizabeth Kartchner, Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year from a year or two ago. The mini was pretty easy to put together. I worked on it a bit in class and then finished it up after having a week documented and pictures printed out. I added some extra ribbon, doodling to finish it off.

A few weeks ago I carried around a camera and jotted down some notes to get a slice of life type of week. I picked a normal week on purpose. The only unusual thing was we were extra busy with Color Me Daisy that week due to a last minute advertising change which moved up our May kit release so it would be available when the ad dropped.

Definitely a fun little project I am glad I did. I am doing the 365 project which is fun to document our daily happenings, but the Peek in My Week was purely from my perspective. I will enjoy looking back at it, even today when I was copying the journaling from my index cards to the mini book it was funny how many minute things in a day you just forget.

Try it sometime.

Hi there!

I just wanted to say that your mini album turned out great. Thanks for taking the time to post about it on your blog. I'm also a teacher for CK at some of the CKCs, and I love seeing how students' projects turn out. TFS!
