I did a couple of double LO's yesterday for our holiday album. :-) Funny thing ... I used to (and must confess sometimes I still do, but I do think a bit harder about it now!) buy paper I liked and would usually get two sheets, without even knowing what I would use it for. It was a "just because" purchase - know what I mean? ;-)
Anyway when I was thinking about what papers to use for this '1st few days' LO I found this paper ... and the reason I bought it was because I liked the colours, flowers & swirls on it. But what do you know ... I didn't even use that side of the paper! (I have a feeling that might happen a bit more when I am doing this album heheee)
I journaled with mini alpha stickers ... man that takes absolute ages!! (does use up the sticker stash though!) :-)
Hummm that is a bright blue isn't it (by the way it goes nicely with broken china distress ink!!) And the Cosmo Cricket strips of paper are on straight ... I just didn't take the photo straight so when I cropped it it looks crooked - sorry.
So far I have done 28 pages for this album ... and when you look at my stack of photos still you wouldn't even think I had started! And I have been culling photos as I go! Some of the photos I got printed I want to use for the kids individual albums, so I won't scrap them for now. I want to prioritise the actual holiday album itself.
I have a couple of aims/challenges for myself for this holiday album ...
- To try and complete before baby #3 arrives (hummm is that wishful thinking??) ;-)
- To use only what stash I have (that includes alpha stickers do you hear Rachel!).
I have a few sets of alpha stamps and I am pretty sure I have a brand new die cut alpha set that I can run through my cuttlebug ... so there's no excuse right! No doubt after another 30 odd pages I will be muttering to myself about setting such a stipulation! hehee
Have also decided to try and keep track of how many LO's I have done so far this year & will do before the baby comes ... not sure how much I will get done after he/she arrives! So I am going to put up a tally in my right column just for interest. :-)
Thanks for visiting.
