One page from Ellie’s February spread, featuring a heavy snowfall, crafts with friends, reading in the sunshine, snacks from our Olympics Study and Ellie’s award-winning haiku. I asked Ellie to journal her memories and her poem and included her own words in her own handwriting for this page.
Next up is a page about the blanket I knit while we were waiting to adopt Elijah. I included my blog post of the story (here). One of the photos was the wrong orientation so I trimmed it and added patterned paper behind.
This is probably my favorite spread so far. One of our Mother’s Day traditions is a “Photo Shoot with Mommy”. I am most often behind the camera, so this is our way to insure that I am in at least a few photos with my kids each year.
I still have so much to learn, but I am definitely happy with our albums so far.
