I mentioned in an earlier post that I had my cousin's twin boys' baby books to work on. They are 4 months old now so I couldn't exactly start making my favorite kind of book: a month-by-month for the first year. I went back to another type I've done in the past and that's an ABC book. It can be added to over years rather than months. I use cute baby words that I generate on my computer, an alpha stamp set by Stampology and this cute Baby Stack by K&Co. The big rectangle is meant to be used as a photo mat and it is not glued down to the page so that my cousin can take it out and place a photo on it. The green scalloped paper is hopefully where she'll jot down a few words about the photo. The sentiment border is only glued down at the edges so that she can tuck it back in underneath. I like that whether her photo is vertical or horizontal, it will fit nicely on the page. Now I just have to make 25 more of these for one baby and 26 for the other. Hee hee. Oh, and I also add two more pages to the album. At the beginning, I put in a page with the header: A Letter from Mom and another that says A Letter from Dad. I think the boys will love reading notes that their parents wrote to them as babies.
Thanks for looking and have a nice day!
P.S. I happened on a blog today that made me smile quite a bit. It's called Mila's Daydreams. If you would like to smile as well, check it out. I'm not advertising, just suggesting. Lol.
