Scrapbook for my new nephew













This weekend I was working on a baby album for my sister Alyssa. She's so pregnant she's going to go any time. It's just fun to work on something during the week of anticipation. I will probably get it done before she has him so I think I will add the stats at the beginning. Basically she will just have to add pictures. I was thinking of sending her the right kind of glue because she just doesn't like to think about things like that. I've tried to get her into the scrapbooking thing but she views it as a chore more than something fun. I told her it might be better to go to one of those book publishing sites that you upload your pictures and text and they charge you by how many pages it is. She should really do something! Her strong point is writing and I think she could really do something entertaining. So here's a few of the pages. I don't think I can post them all. Believe it or not this is only half of the book.

I got the album at the Target $1 section and the paper and stickers too. I basically got the idea standing in the isle at Target and thought "This is what I'm going to do!" Anyway I took the book apart and adding some colored cardstock (SU!) pages in and am happy with how it's turning out!

Details: Scrapbook printed paper and stickers Target $1, Cardstock certainly celery, bashful blue, tempting turquoise, so saffron (the white was in there.) Cuttlebug swiss dots folder, Fiskars clouds scissors, Michaels ribbon, and SU white grosgrain, K&Co baby boy tags.
