This mini album includes 12 different pages to document the 12 months of 2014. For each month, I went through my photos to find a moment for which I was grateful.
The outside cover is a was created with the Autumn wood veneer mini album covers, perfect for layering with paper, or for leaving plain. I chose to dress it up with the Sycamore Lane paper collection pack and October and Sycamore Lane digital cut files, which I lightly colored with watercolors.
The pages were created very quickly by keeping the same design layout on each page. A photo, month banner and journaling spot appear on each page, and I embellished with the amazing Elle's Studio cut files and Sycamore Lane Bits & Pieces. This is probably the fastest that a mini album has ever come together for me.
January: A beautiful, thriving girl who beat all odds to be with us.
February: An awesome brewery right down the road that we can visit with friends.
March: Family willing to travel to be with us.
April: The best birthday that I ever had, thanks to Simon.
May: A wonderful weekend in NOLA for Simon's MBA graduation.
June: The ability to travel abroad and see beautiful things.
July: My parents allowing us to join in on their vacation in Charleston.
August: A date night, sans baby, to attend a wedding.
September: Margaret & Adrian, who love Lizzy so and help us weekly.
