Let's start with the plan.
This is my layout for each day of the week. It's the same for each day. I like to keep some things consistent so that the album has better flow.
I'm using a 6x8" album.
First spread always starts with a picture of me and a 3x8 listing of my activities during the day (in a time stamp order)
My headers always contain a large "day" of the week, followed by the actual date and an embellishment that fits the activities of the day. I then digitally add some words that describe my day and a cardstock strip of the day of the week.
The cardstock strip was easy to make. I just opened up a 4x6 file in photoshop (I use elements.) and added a text box for each day with the day of the week. You can change the background and font color to your liking. I made sure to leave some space between the strips for cutting.
Spread 2: Today included a specific detailing of my home. That's the one main thing I wanted to concentrate on.
In the above image I put 4 3x2 images on a 4x6 page because I wanted to have more photos.
In the next section I concentrate more on my day; getting a haircut, carving pumpkins.
I even have a card that I do everyday with some basic facts about the day: Where I was, what the weather was like, what I ate, enjoyed, listened to, etc.
The last spread of the day:
My high and low card that I do for each day. Just to document what I thought was the best thing and the worst thing. Need to keep balance. Life isn't all sunshine and flowers. There are some negatives too. Granted I don't like concentrating on negatives when I scrapbook but putting one low isn't necessarily a bad thing.
At lunch. I usually read at lunch. today I was splurging on a pop and I also keep a journal during this week. I find at lunch is a nice to time to do half of my day then at night I'll finish up and write about the rest of the day. That way I don't have to worry about trying to remember what happened during this Week in the Life.
