Something else to celebrate: 37 weeks. Maybe not the home stretch, but I'm at least breezing past the short stop right about now.
Even more celebratory: I FINALLY finished Amos' 1 year album (he's a month shy of his second birthday). I've been working on it for a year. You can see here its finished girth, which serves as a lovely geological survey of my zeal about the project:
The top layer where I had all the best intentions and did fancy page layouts on decorative paper with cute text and layering and embellishments like this:
The middle layer is when I still wished for the best but I was getting tired and the impending new addition was beginning to bear down on me. During this phase I barely got decorative paper laid down and a few photos slapped in place.
The final layer (a full half of the book) happened yesterday. That's when I bought 400 photos worth of photo sleeves at Michael's and got that sucker done.
Here's the adorable cover:

You see, as crafty as I am, I do not appreciate the paper crafts. I do not heart scrapbooking, nor am I very good at it.
Photo sleeves on the other hand. We're besties.
Know what else I'm besties with? Tomorrow's Peek of the Week. I've been itching all week to give you a teaser, but I've resisted and tomorrow all shall be revealed and you will squeal.
This post is going over to the Anderson Crew for their Embrace the Camera Thursday thang.
