Eileen Hull Yearly Journal : Inside Pages Slideshow

Hello Everyone and welcome to this blog post about this rather HuGE journal I have been working on since the end of September. 

I blogged about our wonderful weekend in this post a couple of days ago Eileen Hull meets PaperArtsy. I promised a blog post about the inside pages, but there are WAY too many to share as photographs so I decided to attempt my first slideshow (I hope it comes out ok! - at the time of writing this I am not too sure ..... )

I have three signatures in my book which I had intended to be my gardening year Spring, Summer and Autumn/Winter. But I realised as I started making it that it was not going to work as a gardening diary, but .... would work well as a yearly diary, with thoughts and ideas and family gatherings on a month by month basis. I have left myself some writing room, but not much and have instead used many of my favourite papers and layered embellishments. It grew rather large but I love it.

I would like to add my journal to the Mini Album Makers November Challenge (although it is not much of a mini!). There are some lovely inspirational books by the Design Team, so do hope on over!

Thank you for joining me today.

PS : The slideshow did work but you might want to watch it on Youtube as the resolution is not very good. All a big learning curve!

What a beautiful book! The slide show was so professional - well done. I wil need to get my book finished as I've done nothing more since coming home.

Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous Jennie! I love the soft vintage tones! The ivories and dusty rose pink, so shabby! The cover is stunning, so many details inside and out! The slideshow was a great idea and very well put together. Love the sentiment 'I must have flowers'. Incredible project from cover to cover! hugs :)

I'm completely blown away, Jennie - so glad you decided to share all those wonderful pages with the slideshow (very nicely done)... I wouldn't have wanted to miss a single one of those beautifully constructed spreads. And what wonderful use you've made of all the quotes, the Paper Dolls, the ephemera, and those lovely, lovely papers. The cover alone is stunning, and going through the pages is pure delight.
