Well, here's the revealing of several things...first...my FIRST album of any kind...second...it's a gift--and it's late...third...I had set a goal for myself to have it done by MY birthday...fourth...it won't be done and bound by my birthday--however, EVERY PAGE WILL BE DONE BY MY BIRTHDAY!!! You heard that, right?! The PAGES WILL be done!! Lastly...I had planned to start posting the completed pages as Ifinished them long ago, but felt the cover should be posted first, because it explains the theme of
the album...THAT cover is a major stumbling block for me! I just don't know if I can do it and be
satisfied with it. I've tried one...FAILURE!! And in my head I'm just not sure I have a more
successful plan...but I'm not giving up and purchasing one yet!! The idea or theme, and what I want the cover to say is..."Audrey...your sweetest 16 smiles". There are 16 pages with a space for only one photo on each. Her mommy and daddy get the job of choosing one smile per year to go in the album...and it won't be easy!!! Here's the first...
This page will stand alone.
The next two...
will face each other...
My plan was to use bits and pieces of my favorite papers, making sure there is pink on every page, and to have each pair of pages coordinate with each other...that's really the only continuity it will have...I haven't stuck with one paper line or anything (that would be way too sensible!!). It has been fun, but WAY more of a challenge than I was expecting! My hat goes off to you people who create the gorgeous things I see online, and still accomplish other things!
Anyway...I'll continue sharing a few pages at a time (and eventually, that RASCAL COVER) until you've seen them all!
(Side note: While Google Chrome has been a MAJOR improvement--it seems to be picking and choosing which text it's going to center in my posts, and I can't seem to adjust it. Does anyone else experience that?)
Thanks for stopping!! Hope to see you tomorrow!!
