The Baby Book

I decided to scrap Anna's first year, instead of buying a traditional baby book. I was very good about doing the pages... until the 6th month. I have a lot of catching up to do. From now on I will only scrap the major events. Additionally I have decided, with the exception of Anna's baby book, that from now on I will only scrap digitally and have my pages (either 12 x 12 or 8 x 8) printed. It will end up being a LOT less expensive, and I can do so much more in Photoshop than I can with paper. I decided to make Anna's baby book very simple and not stuffed with embellishments and layers of paper. My other books are more "scrappy", but I'm happy I went with simplicity for this one.

Lovely pages! We gotta do whatever is easiest as long as it gets done one way or another! :) Nice to see your pages. I look forward to seeing your digital pages later. :)

Your pages are GREAT! So Adorable! I loved shared being preggo with you :). I am so so so behind on the boys' books... all you who get things DONE are an inspiration to me. I am leaning towards the digital road for some things too...
