Tuesdays with Cory: Fancy Pants mini album

I love the pretty patterned envelopes that are part of each collection from Fancy Pants Designs. They are strong and sturdy and make a great base for a mini album. 

For this project, I used the envelopes to make a min album about everyday life with Cory.  I chose photos from an ordinary Tuesday and described his typical day when he was almost 2. The title, Tuesdays with Cory, is a play on the popular book, Tuesdays with Morrie. 

The day starts with his favorite breakfast, Cheerios. Cory and his puzzles are rarely parted and here, he's bringing his puzzle to the breakfast table. 

Time for school.  Cory goes to an onsite child development center at the hospital where I work. 

On this particular Tuesday, we had a playdate with Zack.  On pretty days, we stop by the park, sometimes bringing the wagon along. 

Cory keeps a big stack of books by the glider in his room.  Before bed, he chooses a few and we read together, then rock gently and say our prayers. 

Goodnight, sweet boy. The last photo shows the album open.  

I used a mix of big and small envelopes and bound them together with two binder clips.  The big envelopes are approximately 3.5 x 6 inches and the smaller ones are 2.25 x 3.75.  I tucked journaling for each page and a few extra photos inside the envelopes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

  6. This is absolutely fabulous. I love the title and love that you documented a typical day. Cory is so cute! I learned something new about you too - I didn't realize you work at a hospital. For some reason, I thought you worked at a university. Is it a university hospital, by any chance?
