Another Project Finished!

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!

I like the idea of using all the professional photos on one layout. I may steal it. Thanks for sharing!
