Thanks to the inspiration (and free daily sheets) of Ali Edwards, I was able to capture probably one of the coolest weeks in our life. I don't know whether it was a conscious effort to make things happen, but the moment I started on this project, the blessings just came rushing in. So thank You, God.
Rather than work in a new mini-book, since this was capturing our life for one week, I simply printed out the free daily sheets Ali Edwards provided HERE onto 4 x 6 white cardstock and adhered them inside my current diary.
This is a notebook I got for P99 at Dimensione.
I didn't want to lose heart mid-way into the project since we've just had crazy days lately, so I kept it simple -- the daily sheets, stamping, and turquoise masking tape from National Bookstore. Plus the photos of course.
The photo of me and Matt on the lower left-hand side is my new favorite photo.
I added a postal mailing envelope to include the receipt and menu from Yellow Cab take-out. And lots of doodling.
Matt got into the action too and declared he wanted a mini-book of his own. We spent two hours just building his mini-book. He even finished his mini-book ahead of mine because it was a separate mini-book and all he needed to do was to draw the highlights of his day.
The Angry Birds pig in the lower left-hand photo is from Toy Kingdom. Matt lugs it around everywhere. That and another pig he got earlier from AR.
It was the week we finally got to see "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2". PLus it was splurging on books on sale at Booksale and Powerbooks.
Saw this mosque in the middle of nowhere at Quiapo. Beauty and faith amidst all the grime and underground economy at Quiapo.
Thanks for looking!
