Baby Album

I am finally able to post the photos of a project that I've been working on.
My friend Brigitte is expecting a baby boy at the end of May. Yesterday was her shower and I made her a scrapbook album for his first year. I set the pages in order of "months" and "holidays" as they would occur in chronological order from his birth. I used K&Company's Itsy Bity Boy paper stack for most of the "month" pages and the other pages are probably DCWV patterned paper. The solid card stock is Bazzill and card stock packs from Joann's. I used my Cricut for all the cuts (some are from cartridges and some are SCAL) All the words are cut with SCAL using the Comic Sans MS font. Any embossing was done with my Cuttlebug. I am so sorry about the quality of some of the photos, I took these in a hurry yesterday right before I left for the shower and I can't re-take them because Brigitte has the album now ;)
























By the way, this is an 8"x8" album and all the photo mats are 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" so she can easily fit a 4x6 photo on each one.

That's really cute! I'm in the middle of my first mini album right now, and it's a baby's first year album, too! ;)

I LOVE this album. Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put into this. All I need is for that baby to get here so I can start snapping some pictures to fill the pages. I am not creative at all and I am so thankful to have a friend that can make something so beautiful for me so that I can always treasure my babies first year. Thank you.
