SSS Anything Goes

The latest Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is Anything Goes! I love it when it's that simple to meet the guidelines.

This year I am attempting to document everyday life in a Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. I'm using the black and white striped version from last year (they didn't arrive until April and I wanted to start from January). All last year I had to enviously see everyone else's feeds of their Heidi Swapp Memory Planner creations. This year it's finally my turn. I'm not sure if anyone would be envious of my creative planning play though.

This is where I admit that April is the most completed month in my memory planner. It would be great to add details on a daily basis but basically life doesn't always allow for that (especially when you're away a lot). Jan-March are penciled in; I just need to find the time to either write them up permanently or stamp them up. I need to get better at adding decoration; not just stamps and writing.

First up is my April at a glance page. I have used a variety of planner stamps; some may or may not have arrived in a parcel from SSS recently....

The blank spot is for a StudioL2e Stamp set I have yet to purchase.....

Next up is an example from the Weekly view from April:

The empty spaces are for photos (I have to get them printed)

And one close up of the right hand side.  The quotes at the top and bottom of the pages are quotes from people I follow on Instagram:

With the intention of adding things daily I pre-stamped the days of the week for May.  As you can see from the photo, that is as far as I have got. But, to be fair, it is only May 3rd today.

The stamp set I used for the days of the week is from StudioL2e (I'm not confirming if it was in the recent SSS delivery).  It was a last minute addition to my order and it is perfectly sized for planners. I think you will be seeing this frequently in future planner posts.
