A Week in the Life :: the completed album

It's done. I feel great now the album for Week in the Life is completed. It was a big project but I am sure it will be well worth all the work that's gone into it.
Here's a quick look at all the pages.

In terms of putting it all together I tried to have a main colour for each day. I used the colour from the text on the day's photo i.e. Monday is blue, Sunday is yellow.
I used a mixture of patterned and plain papers from various different sources. This was more about showcasing the pictures and words than using new products. I did manage to sneak in some Elle's Studio tags though. I also featured at least one butterfly on each days pages and a little bling. 

I've also done a simple front and final page for the album:

The quote I chose to include at the bottom of the final page is this one : :
"Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things".
I thought it was quite a good one in terms of daily life.

I'm not sure if I will do this project again in the future but I hope so as it will be great for a comparison.


  1. That's really awesome, would be cool to do one every few years, I've done a few and Pete's not even 4, I want to give them to him when he's older, need to slow down on doing them so he doesn't get overloaded with them!
    I love that quote!

  2. Well done - It looks great!
    Love the different colours.
    And that Friday photo in the shopping trolley is fantastic!

    What a great sense of accomplishment you must feel, and probably a small sense of relief that it's done. A lovely book to keep for your family and to show your friends.

    A perfect choice of quote to sum up your week. Because it's all about the little things.

  3. Looks fantastic! What a great touchstone of your life at the moment. Love it! Next year I hope to actually stick to it and make it into an album afterwards...yeah right ;)

  4. Thanks for the lovely comments ladies. I already look at the album with a sense of nostalgia and it's only been a couple of weeks since I did it :-)


I love getting comments and will always try to come and visit you if you have your own blog or reply when I can :-) Thankyou
