I love starting a new project. I always have a journal in my purse overflowing with more ideas than I could possibly ever execute. So when I start something, and it doesn't go perfectly, I often leave it "for later" and never return.
This album was one of those. I started it a month or more ago. I wanted to make an album for Penny to remember a special vacation that we took just for her. I know children's memories are very… hmm… let's just say "spotty"? So I wanted to give her something simple and tangible to remind her of this trip we took.
I started the album during a busy week, got all my photos printed, then set it aside and forgot about it for a few days. And the days became weeks, and you know what happens from there.
This week I saw the partially made album sitting there and decided to just finish it. FAST. And I did. I cut out the photos and threw it together in twenty minutes. And it felt AWESOME.
You know what the best kind of scrapbook is? A finished one!
Happy Sunday! I'm spending the weekend in Kansas City with Jeremy. We're coming for you, Ikea! xx. Elsie
