Day in the Life 2017 – Completed

Title page.

I thought I’d share my completed Day in the Life with you all.  This year I started the day like any other day.  I got up for work, showered, ate breakfast, drove to work.  All normal so far.  But then I receive a phone call that changed the whole outlook of the day.   I ended up spending most of the day in emergency with my daughter.  It’s a long story that I won’t share here but suffice to say that it was a very unusual day.

I did wonder at one point whether I should keep going with it and try again tomorrow as tomorrow would be a ‘typical’ day but then again who really knows what tomorrow may bring.  So far this year life has thrown us some curve balls and today certainly was another day like that so on reflection it was worth continuing as it did show a slice of what this year has been like so far.

I did gloss over a lot of the details and did not get too detailed with my journaling as I didn’t think it the right place to do that.  Plus it’s not totally my story to share.  I had to respect that point.

Anyway, here are the photos of my layouts from 10am onwards.

I’ve been using the app ‘Headspace’ on my iphone. It gives me a daily meditation as well and affirmations. This one popped up today and it seemed extremely relevant to the way the day had panned out. On most pages I used the prompts from Ali’s roller stamp that came in the Day in the Life mini kit.

I had been hoarding this swan ephemera from the Chasing Dreams line from Maggie Holmes.

I used much of the ephemera kit ‘Live More’ from Pink Fresh Studios.

I took advantage of adding extra interest with using this hexagon acetate sheet in the pocket page. I love the peekaboo element here.

I am so in love with this Kerri Bradford traveler pack named ‘Splendid’. It is so fresh and colourful and includes heap of usable elements.

On this spread I used mostly papers and die cuts from previous Felicity Jane Kit. I also used a digital stamp from Kellie Stamps. Fun fact: after adhering the ‘Wacky Wednesday’ digital stamp I realised it was only Tuesday! I left it there anyway as it was a pretty wacky day!

A few final notes.  I used a Pocket Page Notebook which is available from The Stamp Spot.  This is my go to now with all of my memory keeping.  I find the blend of pocket pages and note paper perfect for all my memories.

Thank you for popping in for a look.
