A Snapshot of Zoe 2009 - The Album

This is Anna Bowkis's project for 2009 and it is actually called A Snapshot of My Life but I have decided to do it from Zoe's point of view.
The first week's theme is Routine. This is what made me decide to do the whole project about Zoe. I think it will be interesting to look back at the routine of a 3 year old.
I still need some more photos yet as Anna has given us a sketch for the layout with 7 photos on - so I want a photo of each routine. Just need one of her going to nursery tomorrow.
Today I have decorated the album in preparation.
It started off as a chipboard Making Memories 8.5 x11 album with scalloped edges. I painted in metallic cerise acrylic paint on Friday night.
I then have covered the album with the Trimcraft's new range of papers called Smirk and I am using the Naughty or Nice range. I love these papers as they are metallic and glittery. Perfect for a little girl. I have added some pink gingham ribbon so the album can be tied.
I have used a strip for the side which says Angel.I have used Papermania pink letters but they are too pale to show up properly so I have some Thickers in cerise pink on order. I have cut up one of the papers and mounted the panels on chipboard to make the embellishments which I then punched holes into them to tie a ribbon on each one.
This is the back where I have some tags from the same range.
