Damask Divas Team Everyday Life Planner Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas' Everyday Life Planner Blog Hop!

The Damask Divas' team is excited to inspire you with fabulous projects from this beautiful collection!  If you came from visiting {Mandy Leahy}, then you are in the right place.  You can see the full hop line-up over on the {Damask Divas' blog}.

The new Everyday Life collection from CTMH includes a beautiful black and gold 8"x9" album that can be used as a planner with the coordinating 2016 planner pages set, as a My Crush album with the gorgeous coordinating My Crush pages pack, as a Picture My Life album with the new 4"x6" and 4"x3" Memory Protectors, or as a combination of all 3.

Personally, I have decided to use the collection as a memory planner.  A memory planner is a fun, new way to capture moments in your life in a smaller, simpler format than a traditional scrapbook.  Now before anyone panics, I will still be scrapbooking -- but my memory planner will be used to document the daily/weekly activities in my family's life throughout the year.  It's the perfect place to capture the funny things that get said, milestones in my son's life, and other little daily moments as well as the typical stuff we like to scrapbook from birthdays to holidays and everything else in between.
