A Day In the Life

Last year I decided to take part in Ali Edwards a Day in the Life project and took photos throughout the day of our usual routine. 
 
 
I used the Amy Tangerine Plus One collection and created a fun little mini.

 
I used the Epiphany Crafts Button Studio Round 25 tool to create a perfectly coordinating button to tie the mini album closed.

 
Then I added small photos (about 1.5" square) throughout the album. 

 
Its filled with what a typical day looks like here.  Up at 7:30 and as soon as Buttons hears the alarm she comes for a cuddle.  Making lunches for everyone and a typical breakfast for me - tea to go and a scone.

 
Dropping the youngest at school (my oldest walks to the high school), heading to work, having a Coke with lunch, picking the kid up from school.

 
A quick trip to the grocery store then once I am home a quick check through back packs for homework and notices, then a little me time.

 
Getting dinner ready then doing homework.

 
Once the kids are in bed I watch some TV and finish off the day with some scrappy time.

 
I know I will love looking through this book once the kids are older and things are different.

 
Thanks for stopping by.
