Day in the Life in Project Life | The Nerd Nest

On the 4th of each month in 2015, I’m documenting a Day in the Life, a concept originated by Ali Edwards. Each month, I’m adding a full spread for Day in the Life in between weekly spreads into my pocket scrapbooking album. Here’s my July Day in the Life:

Non-traditional colors for a holiday spread | The Nerd Nest

I actually made two spreads for July’s Day in the Life, because Jake and the big kids were in Nebraska while I was home with the baby. I shared the other spread in this post with 6 other projects. I decided to go with traditional red, white, and blue on that layout for Independence Day, but took a less traditional color scheme approach for this spread.

I based the colors more off of the baby’s room, toys, and shirt. It just so happened that the colors I ended up using are variations of red (bright pink / light pink), white, and blue (light blue / mint). This is a fun thing to try out for holiday spreads if you get sick of doing the same sort of thing over and over every year!

When I have a big event going on, I often find it helpful to split a spread into everyday stuff on one side and the event on the other. Lots of the journaling on the other page actually relates to what’s going on here, but that’s just fine with me.

I skipped Day in the Life in August, since I did Week in the Life, but I’m picking back up tomorrow!
