For my mother and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day, I put together photo albums with pictures from the first 3.5 months of Jessica’s life. When I printed the photos at Costco, I also printed copies for me. Now it is easy to scrapbook Jessica as I can just go through the photos organized chronologically in the photo box and pick out some to scrapbook. This makes challenges easier to accomplish on time as I already have photos printed.
This layout uses Imaginisce’s May Sketch. I was especially inspired by design team members Melinda and Liz‘s takes on it. I found it somewhat challenging since I don’t have a lot of photos of Jessica that worked well square, so if you look closely, my photos aren’t quite square. I used the super cute Imaginisce Wild Things Collection and coordinating solid paper I picked up the scrapbooking convention I went to last September with Kristy. I thought the collection would be really good to scrapbook all the zoos I like to visit when we travel, but it also worked perfectly with the adorable little outfit our friend Robert sent to Jessica. I just added a touch of purple paper.
I had a few extra pictures from that same day, so I made a second layout that coordinated with the first. This is where writing a blog comes in handy as my journaling came from this post about Jessica.
