But then I get into scrapbooking fever again!
"Family life" is a scrapbook album series I've been working on to document small everyday moments and important milestones in our family over the years....
i started making the first album years ago.....
now i am starting the fourth book!
This is the cover and front page of one of my "family life" albums:
My daughter was playing around with my embroidery floss and stitched the word "love" and designed the pretty flower. I asked her if I could sew it on to the first page of the album. It's important to me to incorporate authentic bits and pieces. And to have some of my own handwriting - even if it's not very lovely - it's a part of the real me.
The book is packed with pages. Don't worry - I'm not going to put them all up! But here are three favorites...
Last week I just finished sewing a new fabric cover for the album I completed earlier this year and I LOVE love love how it turned out!!!Here is a sneak peek of me sewing while it was still a work-in-progress:
