It's a good thing because you can find a wealth of inspiration all at one place but if I'm not careful it can also make me feel like I'm not keeping up with the rest of the blogging world. After a little refocusing on what is truly important to me, right now, I've been focusing on putting together my little guy's First Year Baby Album. It's very therapeutic to complete each spread and know I've held onto a memory each time.
Jeanette Lyndon's book Cherish. I mainly used a 12X12 Baby Boy Paper Pad and coordinating sticker packs all from Martha Stewart's Crafts and purchased at Michael's. I knew the soft tones and color palette would be perfect for infant photos. The white word stickers and spiral clips are older Making Memories, but for the most part the supplies are the same company. Having fewer supply choices meant that I could move through making the pages quicker, no stopping to look for something or over thinking.
At the monthly weekend crops I met my friend Jill at, I did all the planning, cutting of papers, assembly, and placement of embellishments a couple of months before LB was even born. It was so nice to have pages ready for my pictures during the hectic first few months after LB's birth.
