This is my page for the JANVSBNJ challenge, which was to use numbers on a layout and also incorporate metal embellishments. I used a few photo anchors.
I've been wanting to scrap this for a couple of months now and thought that this challenge was PERFECT for this theme! For the month of November, I kept track of a bunch of daily activities, as well as miscellaneous events that occured. This page is sort of a "month in the life of me". I took photos of various places that we regularly go to each month and a also took photos of everyday things around the house (diapers, washing machine, etc).
Here's some of the things I kept track of:
I changed 207 diapers. (seriously, I did)
I made 6 trips to the grocery store.
We received 105 pieces of junk mail.
I did 24 loads of laundry and 28 loads of dishes.
Each vanilla square on the page with the date listed explains what we did that day in particular (examples: Jack went to the dr on the 22nd, our washer broke on the 16th, met with a new insurance agent on the 28th, got new bedroom furniture on the 4th, etc). My favorite date the entire month was November 26th when I took an EPT pregnancy test and got a positive result!!! Woohoo!!!
It was REALLY fun to track some of these little events during the entire month. I sorta got tired of making tally marks all the time (especially every time I changed a diaper...), but it was worth it!

awesome page!! I bet if we all did this daily tracking we would all have large numbers like that (ie: diaper changes, grocery trips) I've never actually kept track- it's interested to see it in numbers! Congratulations on your news!
