I had planned on having a spread for each week of his first year however some weeks especially when I was sick I just couldn't take enough photos. I ended up having to move in with my inlaws when my back got really bad and whilst that is something to document in itself there wasn't much I felt up to photographing when I was on bed rest for so much of the time.
So...anyway. I didn't work in chronological order and towards the end of the year when I was feeling better I scrapbooked the current weeks as I felt that journalling them as we lived them would be easier. I had written notes for the weeks that I had to catch up on!
So here is week 12. This feels like forever ago! My baby was only three months old :( Where has the time gone? He is now thirteen months old!
So here's a look at the whole spread. As you can see I have used similar colours over the whole spread. Blues, greens and golds which is a common theme throughout his album. I love these colours together and they are perfect for a little boy. I may be biased but I think my little boy is pretty damn cute! See below for the process video of how I put this layout together;
Now for some close up images.
I added a bit of gold glitter accents to the cards. I don't think this gold and glitter trend is going anywhere anytime soon. It seems to have lasted a lot longer than other trends I have seen in the scrapbooking industry over all these years. I added the gorgeous xoxo wood veneer banner for a Studio Calico kit. I wish they made these and sold them by the packet. I love the etched designs on them!
I loved how my title card turned out. I used the Amy Tangerine Plus One brush script thickers to create the title card and I used the clouds printed on this 4x6 card from the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer Project Life mini kit to do some journalling. I thought it was a good use of space!
So I really hope you enjoyed a look in my son's album. I really find this album special. I really love doing it and I thin kit's because I have so many stories to tell as a first time Mum. Every day is a new adventure and a new learning curve. Motherhood is tough but ever so rewarding!
