Photo Book

May 14, 2012

i finally finished it! remember i said i was trying to make a book for lily of her first five years?!?! i said that right before her birthday- which was about two months ago! and i finally just now finished it- cause my groupon was expiring today (i don’t know how to finish things unless i have a deadline!)

so i am so happy with how it turned out. my crazyawesome friend jenny bishop made a pregnancy book for her daughter, who is only 10 months old (you go-getter jenny!) i am not even remotely as creative or organized as jenny is, but i am still happy with lily’s book. there’s a page with her birth story, the origins of her name, her stats as a baby (only the first 2 months…) and her yearly check-ups (lost her stats for year 3! again- not organized!). i love the idea of scrapbooks, and when i see other people’s books for their kids, i drool with covetousness and jealousy and disdain for the fact that i cannot do stuff like that. but alas- shutterfly makes it easy to be a ‘digital scrapbooker’. yeah shutterfly!

so here is the fruit of my labour. can’t wait to get it in my hands! in 3-7 days…
