Week in the Life 2011: My Completed Project

I finally finished my 2011 Week in the Life project! It was July 25th-31st. Finished just in time for this year's project: April 23rd-29th. I hope to post more details soon, but wanted to celebrate the fact that for one thing, I actually finished a project, and second, I love love love it! Seriously. I think sometimes it just takes finding the right products to create what you have in mind. I loved using the mini circle transparency + Ormolu days of the week badges (idea from Ali Edwards). I also resized these templates from Ali Edwards at Designer Digitals to fit the smaller binder. Speaking of binders, I absolutely adore the mini binder from Martha Stewart (you can get it at Staples). Also the silver bookplate comes separately. It is the silver vertical 1 1/16 x 2 1/8. You can find it here. Now to go rest up for next week!

Updated: I thought it would be easier to see the photos enlarged too, so I'm adding the layouts here as well as the Flickr set.
