Newborn baby

The summer between 6th and 7th grades, I decided that I was going to make my own baby book (my mom just collected things and put them in a box for each child). I had a wonderful time, using florecent paper (not acid free), markers, stickers, and decorative scissors. I used original photos, and cut them into all sorts of shapes. Looking at it now, it is awful! I try not to go back and redo LOs, but the paper and the photos are already starting to deteriorate. So, I have scanned them all in and am fixing the photos and redoing the pages. Here's the first.

 

I used:

MST Life Journals

MRE Lifted Photos 1

MRE Lifted Photos 2

TCS Pretty Primavera

JHI Curled Edges

JHI Curled Edges Shadows

KSC Fancy Brushes 2

 

Journaling (a quote from my mother's journal):

 

October 4, 1981

Lots of changes. We have our little Anna, born September 12th. We all love her to pieces. I have to constantly referee to determine who gets to hold her. She arived without too much trouble.

Anna, this is beautiful. I love everything about it. My mother let me do my own scrapbooks and photo albums too. Fortunately she gave me a bag of black lick and stick photo corners and a paper album. They didn't all stick too well, but no damage. But my scrapbook, I pasted everything in. Thank heavens for a scanner. You've done a spectacular job with this!

Oh goodness... I bet you had a blast making that first album, but it sure makes you cringe now, doesn't it? I really love this first page. It's great, especially those pictures and your journaling. I can't wait to see more.

Anna, I had to come find this LO after seeing it in the Sat NL. It is TREMENDOUS! I love absolutely everything about it. The ribbons on the binding are a super nice touch - I never would have thought of that. I have marked this as a "fave" of mine.. I may have to scraplift it later (and give you credit of course). I think you should submit it for publication.. ;)

Wow, Anna, this is stunning. I especially love the tied ribbons on the spiral of the book, and the way you've layered the photos and embellishments. Just gorgeous!
