Making Gracie’s baby scrapbook of her first year has become the never-ending mission of my life! I wanted it to be an actual scrapbook with printed pictures, cute paper and my handwriting and while that sounded like a great idea, here I am, 2 ½ years later and I’ve only completed The Bean’s first 5 months of life… I forgot how time consuming it was to scrapbook and I’m sooo over it, lol! I know I’ll finish it eventually and I’ll do the same for baby #2 but that’s it. It’s been decided that any and all future photo albums will be completed electronically. It’s just so much easier and a lot less expensive.
All of my free time over the past couple of weeks has gone toward finishing our 2013 family photo album on Shutter.fly. They reel me in every time with awesome coupons and then what’s intended to be a small project turns into weeks of digital crafting time. Because I wanted to fit all of our 2013 photos into one book, choosing which photos would make the cut took the most time. As you all know, I’m a picture taker and picking 5-8 pictures of family events where 30+ pictures are taken was a mission in itself. In either case I’m done, I LOVE the way it turned out and I saved $91.93 with coupons! Now if I can just finish our gal's baby book before she goes off to college, we'll be all set.
Here’s the finished product :)
