Last night I was really excited about seeing a friend for lunch the next day. She is a very special friend. She is the one who took care of and loved my son before he was mine. She ran the baby house in Africa that he lived at. I have not seen her since mid-April last year when I was in Uganda adopting my son. But she was in the area visiting a friend so we met for lunch today. It was soooo nice to see her!! I wanted to do something special for her, so I ended up staying up until 3am making her a little album with pictures of "J" to give to her at lunch. I just used some thin cardboard like off the back of a notepad and cut it in circles, covered them with scrapbook paper and then added pictures and embellies :)
The cover. I loved that I found a mat-board star for the tab to match the star paper.
Sorry about the ribbon over the picture. I was covering some personal info.
Page 1 and 2. I love the dandelion paper.
I love the book paper flowers I made.
Pages 3 and 4. I love the bright colors in this layout!
The buttons are really fun. Check out his cute babylegs :) They matched his orange striped dino shirt perfectly.
Pages 5 and 6. My little pumpkin!!
Pages 7 and 8. I just cut these pictures out of and extra adoption announcement. Recycling!
I love this page :)
And the back of the album. Daddy and baby at the park going down the slide for the first time ever. He loved it!
She really enjoyed the album and I sure enjoyed making it! I loved it so much I wanted to keep it myself!! lol
