Week In The Life. Ta-Dah!

Ta-Dah!
Finally finished.
Considering Week In The Life took place in August and I thought I was going to be done by mid-september I suppose that mid-october is not too bad... 
I am so glad I perservered with it as I so enjoyed the project for the documentation, but I really wanted it scrapped as well. 
I loved making the kit for it. I chose a pack of paper Webster's Pages, Dream In Colour, some embellishments old and bought some new (the gold heart washi tape is a fab new purchase) and then I did some die-cutting on my Eclips, my BigShot and made some embellishments to go with it all. 
I had to throw every last scrap of that paper away after I finished as I know I am done with it  
There isn't much left though, so it was the perfect amount.
Ok, so here it is for your delectation 


So there it is, all done and dusted for another year, already there is stuff in that journaling that I had forgotten already. 100% the reason for doing it. Ok, 95%, I do love pretty paper and gluing and sticking 

Thanks for coming by...

  1. The video is fantastic! It gives us such a great idea of the physical pleasure there is to be had in paging through an album like this. Quite often I'll leave a comment for someone saying "this is so nice, I'd love to turn the pages". Well now I feel like I have

  4. I have really enjoyed your video - especially the hungry hippo photo! I like the repetition of the butterflies too, which help to give it a cohesive feel. And those long thin pages for the journalling work really well. And I admire your video-ing skill!

  10. Well mid October is impressive to me! I'm still trying to finish off my 2012 album that I tried to document in a particular way (a couple of 12x12 and a pocket spread for each month) it's now 2015 and I'm only up to
    July! Love the paper range you chose. The colours are pretty and the quotes, gorgeous. I've followed Ali for a while but I think seeing your album has inspired me to join in next time!
