Challenge 17a - 2

And with this layout, I finished Liam's birthday album (minus his first birthday, for which I have not yet located the photos). And I finished it ON his birthday.

I assembled all of the pages in the correct chronological order and gave it to him as a gift. And he loves it. LOVES it!! Even gave it a thumbs up. That's what it's all about.

Challenge 17a was my inspiration for this layout. (WOO HOO, only 5 more challenges to go until I've done them ALL!!)


Some observations on the process and products used:
  1. The inspiration layout is a double spread, mine is a single. But I stole the strip of smaller bordered photos that kind of overlap each other. That's about the only similarity between the two. And that's OK.
  2. When Kev looked at the page, he said, "Wow, where was his second birthday at?" And I read the journaling to him, "We celebrated your second birthday at a rented cottage on Big Star Lake." Kev's reply, "OOOOhhhh, yeah." That's what scrapbooks are for, to help us remember.
  3. I had originally printed the photos across the top in full color, but thought that turning them to sepia would make them coordinate with the paper, better.
  4. Speaking of the papers, another SU! paper set.
  5. The arrows on all of the photos point to Liam's sports related gifts. It was a sports birthday.
  6. He was such a good looking baby!!
