I have finished my Week in the Life album, and it feels GOOD. I love it. More than I would ever have thought. Perhaps it’s because I have started back at work, and am feeling a little emotional about family right now. I so enjoyed the process, and cried when I looked through my completed album. So grateful to have documentation of our last days of my maternity leave. I hardly remember what I did with my first daughter on maternity leave, and am so very grateful to have this to go back to.
Here are the shots of Monday in the completed album. I wanted to go back and add more embellishments or stitching, but then I realized that’s not what this project is about. I followed Ali’s basic format, using her designer digitals templates, and added in a 6×12 page for each day with journaling on one side (template adapted from Ali’s Yesterday & Today class using her Story of Today overlays), and stuff accumulated from each day on the back.
