Baby Album (layout 66-85)

After a VERY long week I am so happy to share this baby album with you. This is for a dear friend from high school (we actually became friends in junior high - - so almost 20 years) who had her second baby in December. 

This has been a trying week as last weekend I was very ill and then Monday coming home from playgroup I slipped on our icy walkway and although I didn't fall, I did give myself whiplash. So until Wednesdasy I was completely useless because my neck and back hurt and I had the worst headache (and nothing was working). Finally Thursday morning I was feeling better so I was able to continue working on the album and today I finally finished!!!! I will put it in the mail next week so she should still get it before baby turns 3 months.

Without further adieu here is the baby album. I have left the picture spaces and journalling blank so that mommy can add her favorite photos and add her own memories (because let's face it as a new mommy you have very little time/energy/etc to think about making an album):

front page based on a pagemaps sketch:
