Christmas in July!

I stopped at 2 LSS's today, no kids, just me! I love them, but how nice it is to be able to browse freely!

I have been thinking about a friends Christmas gift, I know I am early, but if I get it started now it may just be finished in time for Christmas! Today, I saw it and bought it - The Bo Bunny Word Book TRAVEL. I had selected several papers from around the store to use, but then I saw it, and it called out to me....the Basic Grey EUPHORIA line! Love it!!

Here it is, the naked board book and the Euphoria papers, coupled with Bazzill bling for what should be a beautiful book!

Basic Grey EUPHORIA papers

Bo Bunny Press Word Book - TRAVEL

And here it is with the papers on it! And now all I need to do is soften the rough edges, paint the edges, produce some mattes, and embellish it - the fun stuff, but a long process! I will post the finished product once I am done.

I finished the Design Team stuff for the Scrapbook Academy for June! I also completed 2 cards but did not take pictures of them, I don't know what I was thinking...

Here are the layouts:

Just moments old, my wee little man. This will be the title page for his baby book.
He is 20 months old and I still have not competed his baby book (Bad mommy!).

This 2 page lay out is a compilation of his 'Firsts' during his first year:

Each mini picture opens to reveal the story behind the photo, and it is a great place to tuck and extra photo or two pertaining to the main picture!

PHOTO DEVELOPING TIP: Have some of your photos printed in wallet size, it is a great way to utilize a lot of pictures on a layout, and a cost-effective way to have a lot of photos printed if you are doing more than one layout or album (Such as a gift for grandparents at Christmas!)
