from where i stand

8.16.2016  at 8:00 AM

On the first day of August, I saw that Lisa {remember the 52Photos project?} posted a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #fromwhereistandaugust16. I snapped a pic of where I was standing and posted it.


I just had to have one of those gold mini albums that was all the rage on social media probably a year ago. They're still not popular, but you know, it was a thing and I decided I wanted it. So I bought it. And then it sat there on my shelf, mocking me, staring at me, because I did nothing with it.

And it was this album I remembered having and knew that I should continue taking a photo each day in August, from where I was standing, and make a mini album. So I am.


  • I will print all my photos in black and white. I didn't use the same filter on each of them, but they're all black and white. I'm not sure how I feel about the lack of color now that I've done it, but I still have the originals in color on my computer, so there's that.
  • I trimmed some gold polka dot vellum from my stash into 4x4 squares.
  • And pulled out some chipboard embellishments left over from my days on the My Mind's Eye Design Team.
  • Then I searched for some design goodies from the shop.
  • The plan is to include the stories in the mini album, probably in the back. I'll have to add the date to each photo, maybe with a date stamp, so that the photos and stories coincide. 


Here are a few pages, semi-embellished while I figure out the plan. I'm just really happy to be creating and using some of my pretty papers and embellishments. 

If you're a fan of paper doilies and embellishing mini album pages, layouts and gift bags you can find some in the Embellishment Kit Collections.


I post my #fromwheremonikastands photos each day on Instagram {I'm @iloveitallshop and @monikawright_iloveitall} and tell a little story about the capture.

  1. I love this! I done a mini album all on from where I stand as I tend to take so many photos like this?! Why? No idea, haha! It was so much fun to put together You will have a blast looking it once you are done!

    1. I think you're right, Kellie, I will love having this album once I'm finished with it. I might even have room to do this for a few years, maybe each August, to see what changes in our family life.
