A Year in the Life

S's cousin will be welcoming a baby in just a few weeks. This is the first little one of the next generation, and I'm so excited.

I love babies. Except when you're holing them and they just want their Mama (which is not you) and there's nothing you can do about it. Things tend to go downhill from there.


For the past two days, I've been working hard on a little album for this baby, whose name is going to be named Micah Benjamin after his grandfather.


I used a ton of baby and boy-themed products I had around my room, including MANY October Afternoon journaling cards. Do any of you use those? I love them and always buy them, but they rarely make it onto my pages.

Without further ado, here's the album........

I left a spot on each page for a 4X6 photo and some journaling.







So there you have it. A little baby book:)

And check back later this week for a GIVEAWAY here celebrating 100 posts!

Trust me, you won't want to miss it!
