|Creative Memories 7x7 album cover|
I think this project is my favorite project of all times and it was completed without an Expression, Gypsy, Imagine, Cuttlebug...well you get the point. I can picture what it would look like if I had all those tools back when I did this, but the amount of love would be the same.
|First pages of the "Thursday Book"|
The "Thursday Book" has a page for each of the first Thursdays in my daughter's life, starting with the day she was born. The women in the store year's before explained to me that her own mother had told her to take as many photos of her daughter as possible because as a baby they just change so much so quickly. The women decided that she would make sure she did just that and came up with the plan to take at least one a week the first year.
My book follows this same idea. My daughter, Sophie,was born on a Thursday in May. I took many pictures of her (a lot more than just on Thursdays) every week and I put them in this great Creative Memories album that was a hostess gift when I was a consultant. I only missed 1 Thursday. It was the week of Christmas and we had been on the road between Chicago and Minnesota on Thursday...BUT I look at this miss as very lucky because I got pictures every other day that week and with people who love my daughter greatly.
I tried to get pictures of her with all the important people in her life and show things that would be considered "firsts" for her life. They really do change so fast that first year. My daughter is now 4 years old (wait 4 1/2..she would be very angry if I said just 4) and she always asks me to look at the book with her and I must say the same things every time we look at it because she will often tell me those stores as well look at the pages together.
