I can't believe today is the last day of my month-long challenge over on the Making Memories Blog!
After you complete todays challenges, you'll have a complete album all about everything you love!
I actually had to turn in all of my text and images several weeks ago, and I didn't have my album complete at that time. Because of that reason, there are only a couple of images on today's post over there. I'd like to share the rest of my album that I have completed since my earlier deadline.
First of all, here's a reminder about what the "places" tab looks like.
Behind the places tab you'll find several pages about different places I love.
home (with a twist):
my hometown (this is the only 2-page spread in the album):
the pond (my parents own the most incredible piece of property in the mountains above our homes - it's so peaceful and beautiful up there.):
Obviously I haven't baked a cake in a while...so no photo yet...maybe later today I will bake...mmmmmm....
PJ's (again, I haven't taken a photo for this one yet, but my love for my pj's is so deep, I couldn't leave them out!):
scrapbooking (of course):
And a big huge list of lots of other miscellaneous things I love (it was so fun to sit down and just start writing - at first I was worried I was writing too small and I wouldn't be able to think of enough things to fill up the page, but once I got started the ideas just kept coming and I think I could have filled up another entire page!)
Here's the page without the envelopes:
I wrote a "love letter" of sorts to each of my children and my husband.
I embellished the envelopes, write the notes, and tucked them inside:
Instead of giving each person their envelope and letter to keep, I am going to keep them all together in this pocket - of course they can look at their letters anytime they want to be reminded of how much they are loved - but after they're done reading, the envelope will go right back into the pocket:
I created this entire album "on assignment." But I can honestly say it is one of the best things I've ever created. Not because I think it's amazing in it's design or craftsmanship...but because it is a literal collection of all the things I love. A tangible piece of my heart - ready to share with those I love most.
If you're considering creating an album like this one, I definitely want to encourage you to do it. You'll enjoy the process almost as much as the finished product - you'll become more aware of everything that is good in your life. You can gather up all of those good things and tie them up with a bow - a bow ready to be untied and flood your heart with love over and over again!
