Week in the Life Album - update

It's been several weeks since Ali Edwards ran her Week in the Life 2010 project. I started a little late (as Ali was finishing) and have been struggling to finish it. The main problem is that I have too many projects on the go at once. I have several smocked dresses half completed, an insert for a romper for Lisa's baby (due in 4 weeks) half finished and several scrapbooking projects on the go as well. This week (on Wednesday) I decided I needed to finish this dress for my darling friend's daughter Chloe. It was her birthday yesterday and I decided I wanted to finish the dress and post it. I seriously should have thought it through a little more.

All it needed was hemming, the tule needed to be stitched to the peticoat and the buttons and button holes needed doing. I got it finished very late Thursday night then put it in the post on Friday. I've primed her mum who is going to photograph her opening the box. I can't wait to see the pictures.

So that is why only yesterday I started cropping and sticking photos into my week in the life paper bag album. One of the down sides of paper bag albums, is that if you need an extra page or if you miscount at the beginning (yep I really did) then you can't add pages. As it turned out it was a blessing in disguise as I had two days late in the week where I had almost no photos. So what you are about to see is the half finished album. There are no opening pages, collages or journalling yet.


Will make sure I get more pics up as I finish it!!

  1. Love the start of your book. Your self portraits are fun. Love the closeups -- the one of you vacuuming, your boots, etc. Look forward to seeing your finished book!
