scrappin' it up!

I have a fun tackle to share for Tackle it Tuesday!! I have been meaning to finish my son's pre-birth/birth scrapbook. I've had half of it finished for awhile, but I needed to add my journaling and finish up some loose ends to make it feel complete. This last Friday, I had the opportunity to go scrapbooking with friends, and I was able to get even closer. And then yesterday I was able to finish up the journaling. So, now I can say that I have officially tackled it (minus only one page that needs a little more thought into the journaling part of the page).

**Warning: Lots of pictures ahead,
but hopefully inspiring ones!**


here's the page that I need to finish...see that blank space?
There you have it!
A fun tackle, but one that took longer than expected...
Now I'm on to Austin's first year...we'll see how long that takes.
Have I mentioned that Austin's 17 months now?

Heidi,
What great pages. I think I have some new inspiration for Gibson's baby book layouts. I've been at a mind block b/c I want it to look "special" but it was starting to look a lot like the other kid's baby books. Thanks for sharing your pages.

Oh, that is fun! I am SO FAR BEHIND on my albums. Must make that a priority somehow...

Courtney said...

These pages are absolutely... super! ;-)

I've decided to give up scrapbooking. Sad, I know. But I have way too many hobbies to keep them all up, and I'm so far behind. Otherwise, I'd be totally inspired right now!

Great tackle! I only ever got one page of my son's scrapbook done, but we have enough pictures to fill a hundred books!

Heidi....Very productive you have been!!! Wow! You go girly. By the way I laughed...I have the same picture of me and my hubby in front of the hospital room curtain...going home with baby! Wheeew...I am not near as cute as you in mine. By the way....I feel so sorry for you that you dont have a Sonic near by! You must go there with a cooler and buy the bags of ice! TO.....DIE.....FOR. Since I am trying to loose weight and drink a lot of water I go to Sonic everyday for ice water and often for bags of ice. I never chewed ice my whole life until now...I really am addicted! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Mom
