Week in the Life Album Completed

Ahead of schedule (I had wanted to finish by this weekend), I've got my Week in the Life album completed.  I kept it SUPER simple so that the photos and journaling would take center stage. 
I used a 12 x 12 chipboard spiral album from Rusty Pickle that has been sitting on my shelf FOREVER.  I cut it down to 10" x 12" so that I could make a horizontal-oriented album.  Then I cut a rectangle in the center of the front piece of chipboard so that I could decorate the front cover by letting the title page embellishments peek through the window.  I painted the edges of the chipboard and covered each side with cardstock, adding photo corners to the front cover window as embellishments.  I also added ribbon to the spiral binding.

 Putting the album together was easier than doing all the leg-work for the photos and journaling! But worth it. :)

i love this format that you used. your book looks really great. i think this will be so cool for your kids to look back on - especially the one that isn't here yet. :)

i took photos for this and did a bit of journaling, but it will probably be months before i get it into a book. i like this simple, uniform one you did though. gives me ideas for mine!!

You have seriously inspired me to give this a try! I may have to wait till November. I may be picking your brain on how you made this look so easy. =)
