So before Week In the Life last week, I wanted to make sure I was caught up on Derek's month-to-month album, which meant doing June and July's layout. I was a bit behind what with Olivia's arrival and lots of visitors the past couple months. It also took me a bit longer because I wanted to order my photos from Costco and their site has been down. So I ended up getting them from Walgreens and they are a bit dark, but what are ya gonna do? No big deal though, I had kept some notes over the course of the two months and finally had the photos printed and was able to get both of these done last weekend.
I absolutely LOVE this photo and it perfectly sums up what the whole month was about. This is Derek and Olivia meeting for the first time. It's a grainy phone photo but it capture the moment so well that I almost don't even notice :) I didn't have quite as many notes as usual but I'm OK with that.
I had more pictures than usual that I wanted to include this month, so I decided to add a few extras by using a 6x8" protector I had leftover from our honeymoon album (more on that one later :) I had to punch new holes in it for it to fit right but it worked great and I actually did one for July too. Here is the front and back of that. The photos were already trimmed for the pockets on the 8.5 x 11 protector so they are small for this one, but again, what are ya gonna do?
I used some cards and stamps that Kaitlin and I designed from the past few months Scraptastic kits and I love the way the colors came together. I also used my Pizza Night stamp that I designed for my dinner brush set. And as always lots of hand written journaling. I'll be sharing July's layout in the next couple days.
Also, look for an exciting announcement coming later this week!!!!
