I decided to follow along a bit with Ali Edwards and her week in the life project. I’ve done this a few times in my short time as a scrapper (about 3 years) and it’s always fun to see little snippets of our life captured in one place. I have to admit I didn’t do too great with the daily photo thing, and ended up doing a little over two weeks just to feel like I had a good shot of out life.
I used a 5×7 Maya Road chipboard album that I’ve had for at least a year or more. It was nice to finally decide to just use it and not save it for something “special”. I always save the calendar insert that’s in the beginning of each issue of Real Simple, meaning to do something with them and used one for my album <a href=”

“>cover. Since it’s the fall season I decided to use the “Autumn Vine” patterned paper from Stampin Up! I covered the chipboard pages and used pieces through out the album. This pack of paper is one of my new favorites, I love the colors! Sticking with this pack of paper made it easy to keep my album cohesive and I used the colors in the paper, Really Rust, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, and Chocolate Chip.
I knew if I didn’t keep the formula simple and sit down to make the album it would never get made.

I dusted off a phrase maker stamp (is that the name?) from Provo Craft that I’ve had for a long time. I used a date stamp from Staples to add the dates to the pages. I still need to finish the journalling and embellishing but I like how the album turned out.
