I have been working on a baby album for a friend of mine. I'm going to post it in to segments. This is the first half of the album. I used the Slim Jim by Rusty Pickle. I really enjoyed experimenting with this new size as I'm a hard core 12 x 12 girl. It was fun and simple and I was really surprised at how much I was able to get on each page. The person that I'm giveing this to is a scrapbooker but I still included posted notes to let her know what my thoughts were and then she can go from there and make it her own.
This is the cover. I spritzed the cover with glitter mist and used some rub-ons from the Delightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. I had envisioned a picture of the parents and baby on the cover. Oh and the previous Maya Road Chipboard Key Chain is attached instead of tons of ribbon.
Next page I thought would be great for a bunch of those first pics of that beautiful new babies 1st pics. The tab you see to the side is a tab for the second section of the book.
Next is a page for Mom and Dad's pics with their brand new baby. It can either hold two pics on each page or one pic and a note from each parent. I included some stickles to add a little extra.
Now we have taken care of baby, baby and parents, it's time for baby and grandparents. You will notice that my editing skills were a little shaky. The page on the left is straight but the magic wand jumped and framed some of the paper. For the for the word Grandparents I used my quick cutz handle.
That is it for this post. If you have any questions on what I used please let me know. I'm having sinus issues and my brain is not working really well. Hope you enjoy.
With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.
Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:
1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
