Are you familiar with a daily or weekly scrap page, a page that documents a day- or week-in-the-life? One specific example is December Daily by Ali Edwards. In December, there are so many activities going on in that month, creating daily pages help document these busy times. More generically, I think daily or weekly pages sprung out of Project 365, in which you take a photo every day. Taking a daily photo frees you from having to frame the perfect scene, or document only important or exciting activities, and rather just photograph everyday life. Society has embraced this type of photo-taking with the social media and selfie evolution.
Once you have these everyday photos, you need a format to tell the story. Project Life layouts can be a great way to complete day-in-the-life or week-in-the-life pages. In fun examples by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, you can see how she uses the date of the week or month to help tell the story. One digital kit specifically designed for these type of pages is Daily December Memories Photobook Template, not just for December, and it was from this kit I took this week's example layout. When building pages from scratch, Project Life downloads such as Hello December, Seasonal Snapshot, or any other pocket card download and Day to Day Stamp Brush Set are perfect.
Here's my page -

I started with the Daily December Memories kit for my pages right after our trip to Acadia, in fact on the drive home. It was fun to fill in the daily memories. But I wasn't quite capturing the generic daily or weekly page idea I had in mind to show you. I happened to be poking around Ali Edwards's blog today and found an example page I wanted to use immediately.
