30 Days of Me {days 4-9}

Last week I didn't have a chance to work on my album, but I made it a point to take photos and write notes as each day's prompt came about. I worked on my mini a little this past weekend and am still not sure how I feel about it.

My biggest hurdle has been the order of the prompts that have been supplied. I feel like they're too random, swaying from superficial topics to prompts that push you to dig a little deeper into your feelings. This is just my opinion and it certainly was my choice to proceed in the order they were given. So again, something to think about if I were to ever do a project like this in the future.

Day 4 was filled with yummy food made at home. You can see that the left side is the back of day 3's vellum envelope that I embellished just a little.

I used a lovely photo of my parents for day 5. For day 6, I went without a page protector and had fun letting the photo and tag go off the page.

The back became a fun filler page to coordinate with day 6 and the hubs kindly took my photo for day 7.

Day 8 was a different type of to-do list because I had each day's itinerary and hotel info in the notebook that stays in my bag. Alpha stickers and a list for day 9 to keep it sweet and simple.

So that's where I'm at so far. Lots of stamping and using up those alpha stickers I've accrued. I also went back into my stash and pulled out the Maggie Holmes {Styleboard} bits I have. I'll be back later in the week with more pages. Have a great day! :)


  1. this album is so amazing! i love how you are embellishing the pages
    very cool

  2. Loving the details, Elise, like the label stitched over the doily section and the way you've varied the style of the pages. I think this looks fabulous!

  3. These are turning out so great, interesting take on the prompts. You are doing so well getting this done. I was just thinking how I have barely touched the numerous pocket pages I have going on.

  4. Ah that's so pretty! I recently ordered not only one but three of the WRMK Instagram albums (two gold, one mint) and still have no clue what to do with them. But they are pretty!! Haha.

  5. Your book is so pretty.
    Your pages are lovely.
    I would feel the same as you about the order of the prompts.
    But this keeps me from working on a lot of projects because of this though

  6. What a great mini album. I love your details like the dotted vellum, doily, and map background!! :) Evie

  7. Your book is turning about beautiful! Love the gold heart flair. I think it would be difficult for me to go back and forth between easy and though provoking prompts too.


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment, I truly appreciate all your kind words!
