Newborn baby


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.

Pictures taken in the fall of 1981, Santa Clara Utah.



    The papers look great & I love the little ribbons tied to the book!
    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!
    Wow Anna!!! This is absolutely beautiful! Your choice of color, elements and placement make this perfect. Your mothers journaling makes it extra special. You should be very proud of this. Love it!!!
    This is great Anna!! Love what ya did here!! TFS!!!
    You have been a natural scrapper from the beginning!! :disappearing-smilie: Beautiful work.
    Cute LO. Love how you used the journal!
    Wow, Anna, this is absolutely gorgeous. What a wonderful way to perserve your baby pictures. I love how you used the journal and the page curls here.
    This is beautiful! I love the way you've tied the ribbons onto the journal!
    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.
