I've made a start.

On Jessi's 'All About Me' album like Nic Howard is doing.

I'm using an 8x8 album which I picked up for $1.50 and had sitting here waiting to be used.

The inside cover page - I decided to save my four fingers photo for the next page. I don't have a fancy Fiskars border punch like Nic but love that look so I've used my Stampin' Up corner rounder to make the scallops and my Fiskars hole punch to make the holes. The 'for you with love' is a Stampin' Up stamp, as is the French swirl background stamp you see in the um ... background.

This was a challenge - getting Jessi to write her name and age. She does the J fine and then gets frustrated when her e and s go wonky and gives up in disgust. I haven't been too concerned about name writing - I figure she'll do it when she's ready. So I've helped her out a little here and written the tricky letters myself. She was really proud of her tunnels (n's) though!

The swirly border stamp is a Stampin Up wheel.

Jessi has already embraced 'her' book - she's calling it her profile book. I guess it is pretty similar to her Kindy book.

So - speaking of Stampin Up... I went to Kelly's place last night. She has the cutest house with 'triangle' windows upstairs - my dh insists they are actually gables. Anyway we got to order from the new Stampin Up catalogue - can't wait for that scalloped circle punch to arrive! There is lots of cool stuff in the catalogue but the coolest thing (which I didn't buy ... yet) is the Fiskars trimmer. It's sleek and styley and best of all ... it's measurements are in cm's and inches. So if you're looking for a new trimmer ... I highly recommend this one!

Right, I guess I could go make page number three in Jessi's book - as I was tucking her in tonight she asked if I was going to go and finish her book now ... I don't think there is much chance of this project going unfinished!
