More 365 photos

Here are a few more of my 365 photos. I think I'm going to need to load them daily to keep them straight. I also have some "stuff" not photos to put in my album. Anyway, I'll post the finished 2 page layout on Thurs or Fri.

First Week of 365 Album

So for my 365 album I am using the EDS system by IRW. (aka Scrapworks Baybox/Anthologie). I picked some papers I like and just decided to use them for each week depending on my mood. I printed out a bunch of Address lables with "Week Of" and will be sticking them on as I go along. I liked the thought of the stickers since I can ink or stamp on them if I want to.
The page protectors I'm using have 10 4x6 openings and one 6x8 opening. I like this better than the CK version because I have a vertical option or, if I have a super photo, I can enlarge it.

I also LOVE the fact that I'm using up my stash of stuff on this album! I have a ton of #rub-ons that I can use on both the photos and journaling tags. I have had these little tags forever and they are really a great size to just do captions. Anytime I want to journal more, I can use something larger.

These EDS Albums are FANTASTIC , They are a bit limiting in that a whole year won't fit (no way).I am just going to do 27 weeks and do 2 albums.

Starting my 365

I Know! I Know! What the heck kind of blogger am I? I don't put anything on since school starts and now I want to start again. Well, I do! So forgive me if you have been sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for me but I'm Back.

Becky Higgins has started a bit of a craze with her 365 Project (look here if you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about It is a great concept and I really wanted to get the kit. Thing is, nobody is sure if they got the kit ordered or not. So I've started my photos and thought I'd post them here to keep up.
The bottom one is Jan 1. Aidan and Delanie making 2009 out of their hands (okay kinda corney but cute!) We had a pretty mellow New Years Day. We just hung out at the house, played some wii, and recouped from Jeremy & Kim's party.
The middle one is when we finally said good bye for now to the tree on Jan 2. Now this wasn't a small feat for Ed and Aidan since it was -15 degrees! Just cold to the bone! They still look like they are having fun though I'm not sure how much fun went on when Ed put the tree up on the shelf in the shed! That new tree with the lights already on it is HEAVY.
The top photo is Aidan otherwise known as Lego Man! That kid amazes me by how he will sit and read the directions. Normally sitting still isn't in Aidan's repertoire but when he puts on his Lego Man Hat (okay, no real had but it's a thought!) he can sit for hours at a time. He really reads the directions and piece by 1326 pieces he puts the thing together! This was the Drone Carrier he got for Christmas. COOL!
