and FREE printable from Cathy Z) for a 6x12 title page. I tweaked the idea a bit and cut one of my 12x12 papers in half, printed the title on cardstock, cut it out and incorporated a photo. I raised the cardstock with pop dots for a little more dimension.

digital elements in Photoshop Elements to jot down the kid's ages, and adhered a big fat ribbon I had laying around that kind of matched. MAN, those kids are cute!
One Little Word.
As the photo above shows, I'm hoping to include some little blurbs about each kiddo. Maybe about Dan and I too? I did this last year, and I liked the little "snapshot" of who they were at the beginning of the year. They have changed so much!!!!
Here is my first week. Again, since January 1 fell on a Sunday, I just grouped it all together and did 8 days in a spread. Oh well. I put my title page on the top right corner so my Friday, Saturday, & Sunday are together. Weird? Maybe...it just seemed to work best last year, so I'm going with it again eventhough I'm going with the weekly approach vs. photo a day.
Left Side. Some DSLR photos, some iphone photos. Trying not to abandon my camera, but that darn phone is just so convenient! Since I've been using Instagram photos a ton over the past few months, I keep running into the obstacle of what to attach my square image to? Last year I used my 12x12 patterned paper, my bi-fold journaling cards, random scraps of paper...but a thought occurred to me...
Why not use the digital papers I purchased that coordinate with the kit??? DUH.
So that's what I did. I always crop my photos in PE before uploading them to Costco anyway...Why not just put a patterned paper behind the 3.5 x 3.5 instagram and print it as a 4x6? (added a shadow behind the image so it looks more 3 dimensional.) Saves my 12x12 paper, and only costs about $.13 each. May seem like a lot of steps, but this process has become pretty streamlined for me. The entire digital collection is about $20, I've already used it a bunch! LOVE!! Thank you Becky and Jessica Sprague!
