This is my third year doing WITL, and it’s become one of my favourite memory keeping projects. It’s of a length that allows me to really get my teeth into it, and capture a whole lot of what life is like in our family right now.

It’s taken a little longer than expected to complete this time around, but I’ve ended up with an album I love, and that I know we’ll be able to look back on and enjoy when life is completely different again in a few years.

The majority of products I used were from Ali’s kits to keep things simple and straightforward, but I tweaked various digital products to add variety – I explain how in the video below, and give a walkthrough of my album:

Here are a few photos of some of my favourite bits:









So as you can see, my album captures a lot of everyday routine, and many ordinary little vignettes, as well as a bit of drama and the unexpected. Because that’s life, I guess!
