Week in the Life- Completed album

Hello!
Whew! This project took a whole lot longer than anticipated. The album was 18 pages total. 5 cardboard pages and the rest baseball protectors full of 3.5X2.5" pictures. I cut the protectors down to 8X8" or smaller. I also rotated the protectors according to the set of pics.
For the sake of time, I'll show you most....not all.
Here is a picture of the cover again.


I added tags in some of the protectors and some I only placed pictures inside.

For each day I placed a bigger picture on cardboard. We just so happen to have 5 people in our family and I captured 5 days. Worked out perfect! Noah was Monday.

I added some small circle tags in the center of some protectors. I kept it very simple.

I did a lot of stitching, ink droppings, and I used most of the stuff I bought for the project.


I used a picture from Albert's birthday dinner.

Again, there really wasn't much to the baseball protectors. It was easy to place a picture in, jot some words on a card and viola!

The cardboard pages took longer only because of all the stitching. I tied them all together by having our initial or name on the top right of each page.


I used all the journaling cards from our kit for this page. Overall, the album was pretty simple. It was finding the time to sit and make it...that's the hardest part I added journaling for each day through out the whole album. . :)

The book was pretty thick, I had to use bigger binder rings than I had originally planned.
Well, I'm very glad this project is FINISHED! On to the next....
Have a good one!
Veronica

Nice! I'm impressed you were able to get a whole album done with young kids! I haven't even gotten past the taking picture stage (blogging was my goal, but that hasn't happened yet).
