Week One is Done!


I finished week 1 of my own little version of Project 365 tonight. I'm posting a photo of the completed layout because I want to pick your creative brains! Once I glued everything down, it occurred to me that perhaps I should have run the photos from left to right, all the way across both pages, instead of days 1, 2 & 3 on the left-hand page and 4, 5, 6 & 7 on the right. Any thoughts? I don't feel like re-doing this first week, but for subsequent weeks, I might change up the photo layout to run left to right. I'm also not real sure about how to transition from this week to the next in terms of color & embellishments. I'm thinking of continuing the tone-on-tone blue & white/snowflake theme throughout the month of January and changing it up for the subsequent months. I plan to use some sort of page divider between each month. I don't want to get bored, though. I'm probably over-thinking this (I tend to do that sometimes . . . okay, most of the time). I welcome all suggestions! Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Jeanne, I am going to do this with the faith crop at TM, so I started mine and have layouts on my blog. I am doing it more with "randomness". Personally, I'm not for matchy, matchy and I will get bored. I am digging deep in my secret stash for this project.
Just have fun.
....Your layout is great do not change it.

Gorgeous Job Jeanne!!! Don't change it.....its fabulous!!!

I like the idea of the same tones for one month and switching it out month to month!!!

But I do like the idea of reading it as a 2 page lo too!!!!!

Jeanne,

Great. Do not change a thing. I'd like to lift your idea. The only problem is that I use an on-line source for printing pictures. I'd be playing catch up every month.

Looks fantastic! I like it with 1,2,3 on page one, but I think you might be right about having them go left to right across both pages. Great pix!

We have a new American Girl (Kaya) and Elmo Live at our house right now too. :) So far Kaya is a hit, and Elmo is considered terrifying. Hee.

I love your week 1 LO. I would leave just like you did. I kind of like the first 3 days on 1 page and the next 4 days on the other. Mostly because the journaling kind of flows that way too.

I like the idea of using the blue/snowflake theme throughout January - maybe red for Feb - green for March - lavendar or pink for April - etc.
