Project update.....

...so I really, really enjoyed documenting our "week in the life" last week...
i had a few of my friends tell me they were sad the week was over because they were enjoying seeing and hearing about our daily business!!!
so during our "week" i was wondering just how to go about pulling all the photos and journaling together...so i popped into dollarama one day and strolled around seeing if i could come up with something different than a typical scrapbook album.
and this is what i've come up with!!!
* I bought two white canvas boards ( found in the craft aisle by the paints ) to use for my front and back covers.
*And for the pages, I bought two packages of baseball / hockey card collectors pages ( found in the childrens book aisle ).
*I decided to use Tim Holtz alpha stencils again with 3 different colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist...and also a Heidi Swapp tulip mask ( i added the third color AFTER i took the picture! )

( sorry this shot is a little dark...as you can see, i just left the back cover with only misting, not sure if i will add anything to it or not...i guess i'll decide later )


...after misting, remove the stencils and add embellishments....i am also not decided yet if i am going to add anything else to the front cover...i kind of like it the simple way it is and i dont' want to take away from the stencils and misting....
I am going to be punching 3 holes and binding everything with binder rings and adding ribbons to them, but that will happen when i'm finished the album pages!

...and here's just a few shots of the work in progress....
( yikes, don't mind the mess! )

( i have an 8 x 10 of me with my camera that will be scrapped on the inside left cover once i pick up the photo!! )



...here i did a half page because the photos were all taken horizontal. so i cut off 1/4 of the page and stitched with embroidery floss down the side!!!


...hope you like it so far...
i will definitely take pictures properly of the whole thing once i'm finished, so conisder this your Teaser Trailer....
hahahaha!!!
Have a great weekend everyone....
:)

Well I'll give you a hint - ABSOLUTELY NUTHIN'! HAHA!

No, that's not true. I did get all my printing done. The only thing I haven't done is a) I forgot my Jenni Bowlin Bingo Cards for sports and b) I want to print on (at least some) the journaling card downloads I sent you, but until I start putting it together, I don't really know what and where... so that will come next week.

See ya tonight! There will be one Peach Passion with your name on it!
