Twenty elleven – the year they were 2, 4 and 6

Back in May I was on sick leave. Living with my extended family, with a lot of time on my hands and very few obligations, I needed something to focus on. Since I did spend a lot of time with the kids in the family I decided to make an album about them and how we interact with each other as an “extended family”. The fact that the kids are 2,4 and 6 decided the working title for the album.

I had so much fun doing this because I had the time and we had a beautiful spring. I am sure I could have done this with my old camera but having a new one sure made it even more fun:)

After I had finished my “Week in the Life” – album yesterday I cleaned my desk and was set to work on finishing this the next album…

Almost clean. All I need is room for the cutting mat and a corner to leave the scraps:) But, I was thankful this morning I did had a clean desk to start with. I made the opening page…

This is their kindergarten photos taken in May. Wish I knew how the photographer got them to stand still and hold hands:) I used photos from the same series for the intro page…

Here I used a template from Ali Edwards. This is the only journaling I have done using the computer and printer. Because I had no printer available when I started to work on the album the rest is journaled by hand. I so want to use the printer now but I will keep using my pen.

Most of the album is filled with photos in 4×6 divided page protectors like this…

When inspired or if the story was already told on the 4×6 cardstock or I had som really cute photos I would make a layout…

Just the simple stuff. Crop, glue and add a piece of paper if it fits in somewhere. I run out of cardstock and adhesive back in June so I have a few layouts to finish before I can call it done. The next up…

If anyone wonder why I am spending vacation time inside – scrapbooking…

Yes – it is raining like it use to do when I start my summer vacation!
