Before we get to our fabulous page today, I thought it would be fun to announce our winners for the new Just Add Color Silhouette class! By the huge response, it looks like y’all are just as excited about it as I am!
I also loved reading all your color choices! Lots of red and teal in there. Blue too. And I’m with y’all, my favorite color is just about all of them. Depends on my mood. Today I’m sporting a green sweater with my favorite staple….black. Black is so forgiving in fashion. And I need all the forgiveness I can get. :)
So, for the winners of the spot in the Just Add Color class. They are:

Now, to the page by Miss Laura!
Sometimes don’t you wonder what you did all week? You know you’re busy, but when you look back, you have no idea what you did? Have you ever thought to record it? You know, my great grandfather used to keep a tiny little journal with bullet points about what he did every day. Nowadays we can record it with photographs along with text. Love that. I’m sure that when he kept those notes that he thought his life was so boring and ordinary. But believe you me, his posterity has enjoyed hearing about his life!
I think that’s what’s so great about Project Life. Simply journaling with photographs–the day to day or monthly events.
But if Project Life is a little much for you, try breaking it down into bite-size pieces and record a week in your life once in a while. I did that for a CK assignment waaaaay back when. Like nine or ten years ago. I love that I captured that little moment of time.
Well, that’s what Laura has done here in her page. She talks about and photographs what she does in a week in her life of daycare. One day I’m sure she won’t be doing daycare anymore. Can you imagine how precious those photos will be? And to all her posterity?
Let’s take a look-see, shall we?
[ Shapes | Today (weekdays) / This & That: School (clock) / This & That: Family (frame) ]
( Just have to add a little p.s. here. I recently made an arrow for a project, similar to the one she used. I thought it was so weird when I saw it on her page! So when you see it come along, just know that what she used here isn’t the same one–but it looks a lot like it! lol )
I love how she used the days of the week for this page! It all looks so fun together!
A fabulous creation, my dear Miss Laura!
Here’s what Laura hast to say:
When Kerri came out with her Today kit, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the days of the week words. I thought they would be fun to use on a layout about my work week. I cut each day of the week from a different pattern paper, and arranged them on my page. I also cut some frames from Kerri’s This & That: Family kit, and sized some photos to fit under each frame. I adhered the frames using mini pop dots for a bit of dimension. I wanted to use the “It’s A Good Day” sticker on my layout, and thought that the viewfinder look of the sticker would look perfect added to the center of the clock from the This & That: School kit.
