Photo a Day Albums...

As you know, I recently completed a full year of FatMumSlim's Photo a Day Challenge.  It was a lot of fun, and I'm now a few weeks into year 2!  So I had all of these pictures, and I wasn't sure what to do with them.  Then I discovered these Snap! albums that had 4x4 photo slots.  Score!  I printed all 365 photos as Walgreens (they print 4x4 which is sweet).  Then I used some Project Life cards to tell some of the story.  I ended up needing two albums, and all pictures are in!  Now I'm just going to add a little journaling here and there and it'll be done!  Couldn't be easier!

This is the first page of the first album.  I'll kind of explain what the albums are about on the journal card on the bottom of the page.

 I added these calendar dividers and I'm thinking of adding the prompts for each day, but I also printed the photo prompt page for each month so I might not.  We'll see.  It's a work in progress at this point.

And here's the last page of the second journal.
I bought two new albums for this year, and I'll be printing the pics each month and adding them, rather then doing them at the end of the year.  It'll be easier to keep track of each month's pictures and the order they need to be added.

I love how I can look at the pictures and think "I remember taking that" even if it's of something random.  It totally takes me back to the place and time of the photo.

So glad I did this.

Wow - this is awesome. I love seeing pictures printed out. Something about it makes it feel more homey. :)
