I feel like I accomplished so much this weekend! (After all, it was soooooo cold outside, all the more reason to lock myself up in my craft room!) I completed my Mom's 8x8 album (see previous posts for pics of some of those pages) and then last night I also finished my DD#2's baby album! I'm not sure how I'll continue to do albums, but I felt like each of my daughters' 1st year should be a 12x12 album all it's own (does that make sense?--I feel like their is a grammatical error in that sentence--oh well) So, I completed an album for each of them starting with the story about how we announced the pregnancies (I wrote a poem for each, so I included a copy of that on the first page of the album) thru their 1st birthdays. I didn't have a certain amount of pages that I felt I had to complete for each, but I scrapped my favorite pics-at least 1 page per month. Then I felt like they needed something to finish the book, so this is what I came up--a year in review type thing:
I used their professional photos, did a wallet strip at the bottom and a 5x7 at the top of their 1yr pic. This is Kayla's above...I totally scraplifted what I did for Ashley's right down to the title (I just finished hers this summer-- just in time for her 6th birthday party!) Here's Ashley's:
I'm so glad that's done and I really like how it came out! Hope you all had a great weekend as well!
