There's a lot of talk on the message board about how we are approaching this, so I'll share my way here:
I'm creating the template for my mini pages in a word processor - I use Mac Pages - but something similar can be done in Word.
This is the template. The green boxes will have photos in them. They're small - only 2x2 inches, so I have a space for a larger photo that will be included now and then. This same template will be copied and used every six days. All I have to do is change the numbers, photos, add my journaling, and print it off.
The colors I chose for the print match the mini book I made from the October JBS Mercantile kit. To match them nicely, I simply pulled the internet image of the kit up on my screen, and used the color-picker in my Mac Pages to "choose" the colors I wanted.
Here's the general idea:

I just love it when your computer makes life easy for you ... !
so .... I'll be waiting every six days I think to print my photos out .... if I can wait that long ... ;)
If you've never used a color-picker, you should try it! PSE has a color-picker that does allow you to get the color code for anything on your screen. You can find a bunch online, too - apps for your Mac and programs for your PC. Many are free or very cheap!
