Now it may sound silly but I can't do 2 albums based around the baby (although the mini will be a whole family based documentation) and then not do one for our oldest daughter (who is 3 1/2) so I'm thinking that maybe I'll do one for her about being a Big Sister and all the cool things that means. Like teaching her all the things she knows, and being able to play with her, and when they get older being able to give her advise, etc. I will keep it in a mini format just because that is easier, but also because I don't have a lot of experience being a Big Sister to a younger sister - my younger half sister and I didn't grow up together and so therefore we are not close, so I really only have my experiences with my younger half brother and that probably would not do when it comes to 'sisters', so I will have to keep the album short & sweet - and maybe take some advise from some of you that have younger sisters. If there is something you think needs to be mentioned or is a part of the 'Big Sister' role, please leave me a comment so that I can add it to her album. Or if you are the younger sister and wish there was something your older sister would have done or warned you about, that could certainly help me too. I would love to read what you think, like I said my experience in this is limited, so I'm all ears.
The papers I used came all together in a 6x6 pack so they all matched which made my project easier and it gives the whole album a more consistent flow; also the fact that my tags are only 6x4, I still have a 6x2 piece left from each page to use throughout the book later. My idea is to use a few of my smaller punches to embellish the pages as I go, since the book is already pretty thick I want to keep the extras to paper width and punches would add a lot without the bulk, same with stamps & ink.
As for the cover I haven't decided yet how I want to embellish it, whether I will keep it plain or jazz it up a bit. I am leaning towards the later, I'm envisioning a big flower and maybe a couple of butterflies - something like that, and of course I will have to add some ribbon to the chain - that's a given.
Well this is it for now, hope you enjoyed. Sorry for such a long delay in the post, but that comes with me being 7 months pregnant, hopefully now that I have lots & lots done I will be posting a little bit more often this month.
