Project Life Weeks 25 - 27

Wanted to share with you the last two weeks of my Project Life album.
In this week we finally got a chance to go for a swim in our pool.  The water felt great.  This was also Father's Day and I got my husband a new tool box, lining and tool from Sears for a combination Father's Day/birthday present.

This week was another warm week so perfect for the pool.  We also pulled weeds from my rose garden and got poison ivy.  We have never had poison ivy in our yard before.  I had on gloves but some touched my arms when I was putting it in the garbage.

For the last week it was my husbands birthday, I had already got him his last week so I got him a plaque. We also had eat what ever the birthday person wants.  So we had BBQ ribs, burgers, hotdogs, sausage, pork steaks and all the extras.  We also have a Bababa-nut cake from our favorite bakery called Classic (was Mr. Pauls).

Decorated Baby Girl Mini Album with Box

I wanted to share with you how I decorated the album and the box.  It took me longer to decorate and embellish it.  I really like how it came out.  I was going to buy some baby shoes to put on the box when I came across how to make them.  I practiced on different materials and really liked how they turned out.
I hope you enjoy the video.  This item is available for purchase at my etsy shop:

Baby Mini Album with Storage Box

I wanted to share with you a new project that I have been working on. It is a mini album with a keepsake box. I have been working on this one for awhile.  The album was easy, but the box gave me some trouble.  I could not think of how to make the shelf in the box.  I tried so many different ways but did not like how they came out.  Then the other day I woke up with this idea, came straight to my craft room to give it a try and I liked the way it came out.  In my mind what I wanted to use this box and album was for a keepsake for the new baby.  I figured that you could put in it things like the little hat from the hospital, a pair of the first booties, a little onesie, the hospital band, etc.  Then in the album you could include all the special moments of the baby.  All safe and in one place.  I'll show in my next two videos how I put the album together.  The video on the box will be coming soon.  Hope you enjoy and find it helpful.
