So we are in the 2nd week of school for the girls. Routine is settled, which puts a big smile on my face. Meals are organized, I know the girls' after school activity schedule and the best part is that you get to come to my Fall classes, workshops etc. We have a beautiful catalog and Holiday Mini Catalog and it has inspired me to create great memories for my family. One of the projects that I created a few weeks ago is a mini 6×6 album for Jordan. Why Jordan? because she is my youngest, the one that I still have the power to dress up cute. With Megan and Lauren, I don't stand a chance! I created this special album for Jordan and am going to add a picture of every year since her birth. The Beau Chateau collection is perfect for her. I can think of events, clothes and memories that will match this collection. I can't wait to share with you a few pages in the next few weeks.
So here she is, proud moment for her because she lost her first tooth before her first day of school and finds it really cool. On the other hand, I am trying to grow her bangs and she refuses to tie them up. So I don't know how long I'm going to last without cutting them:)
Here is some of the cute ruffles that I have been taking about. First day back from school!
I love how the ribbons, pink bauble, paper and album coordinate so well together. If I had left over fabric from the beau chateau collection #122336, I would have used it for sure.
Do you wonder why this album is so appealing to the eye. One of the great rules for scrapbooking is that you need to add elements in a triangle. On my album, your eyes are drawn to the butterfly, bunched up ribbon and the word memories from the album.
