{ Project 365 album }

Here is what my album looks like. My title page is not complete and it is not included here. These are the first four weeks and I am still working on week four. Week three is missing a photo and some journaling.
Like I said before, I have a little notebook where I record the photo of the day and my journaling.
Every few days I edit my photos and save them in my Project 365 folder. When I am ready to print they are all in one place. I have a little Epson PictureMate and it prints slow. I get other work done, like journaling or editing, while the photos are printing. I place the photos in their appropriate slots in the album that way they don't get lost.
In the last three photos I wanted to show you what I do to make things easier for me. I cut up the week stickers in half and tuck them in the bottom pocket. I randomly filled several pages with journaling cards and I have extras in the pocket in the front of the album. Pen and additional daily stickers are in my Berry Sweet pencil holder. When I want to work on my project I just grab the album and my journal. Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions and/or links to your projects. Photo tag:
My friend Rae photo tagged me!

Here is what you need to do: Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures. 1. Pick the 6th Folder, then select the the 6th picture in that folder. 2. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture. 3. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.

My 6th folder, 6th picture is.....

Alex was playing with his front loader truck. He got it for Christmas, but started to push it around on this day. It is filled with those large Lego blocks. I take pictures of his toys all the time.

I am tagging: Carla, Elaine, Mel, Nicole, Leigh, Carrie.


  1. Wow, looks great! Aren't you excited to have this project to document the whole year? I love how you're keeping it organized. The daily journal really helps keep the photos straight, doesn't it? I don't print mine each day so after a week or so, it's easy to get lost, so the journal saves time!

  2. Oh wow, your album is looking GREAT!!! *whispering*...I still haven't done my journaling yet! ACK!!! I think I'll work on that this week! :)

    Thanks for the photo tag! I'll definitely play! THANKS for thinking of me! :)

    Oh My Daniela..This is `gorgeous` what a beautiful keepsake...TFS:)
    `Have a lovely Day:)~x~

  16. Great job on Project 365! You are creating the most beautiful keepsake! I didn't commit this year, but I soooo love the idea. I'm planning on doing it on a much smaller scale due to time constraints. I'm thinking 12 photos, 12 know, 12 months...LOL! Love the strawberry shortcake pencil holder too. Happy Tuesday!

    you stinker - you did tag me! :)
    off i go to check out my 6th folder and 6th picture :)

  18. Hey chicky! Ok I did the photo tag!! Just letting you know I ACTAULLY DID IT Lol

  19. Oh, how cool to see your project 365 taking shape! Love that you're getting to use larger photos. My idea for them means I have to super shrink the pictures. Hoping to get a whole month on one 12x12 page. We'll see, I guess. ;)

  20. Wow this is such an awesome project, you're such a great mama, Alex will treasure this someday! I hope to someday start Carter's scrapbook, not to mention Courtney's... *sigh* Alex is looking as cute as ever btw! :-)
