Something Different

It’s birthday season! Somehow, most of my three children’s friends birthdays all seem to fall within the same three month period and we are kept busy with birthday parties to attend. We have a lot of fun, and Miss almost 3 loves parties. She loves party dresses, she loves being at the party, she loves party food, party games (mostly just pass the parcel at the moment), she loves seeing her friends open presents, and she loves the cake. She’s always ready to help blow out candles if whoever is celebrating doesn’t know how yet.

We had two parties to attend this weekend, and for something a bit different, and a bit personal, I thought I would make a mini album up for each of them, all ready for their parents to put photos into.

I was able to make these from things I had in my scrapbooking stash already. I have made hardly any time for scrapbooking this year, so it was fun to dig through the stash and think of things that would suit the recipients.

First up was a one year old boy, a cheerful and fun wee lad. I chose a series of blue papers, starting with baby blues for photos of his youngest days, progressing through funky retro prints. And I teamed it with chocolate brown foam letters.

Here’s a few of the pages…

And today’s party was for a sweet two year old girl. I had some cute flocked punch out accessories, and I used them to decorate the pages along with just three sheets of scrapbooking paper.  I also used cute pink alphabet stickers to girl it up a bit. Here’s some pages.

And of course I had lots of fun, and wondered why I never seem to have (or make) the time to scrapbook for my own albums.

      Of course you may! I hope you blog yours when you’re done too 🙂 (Do you need any bits and pieces? I’ve got the leavings from the green and peach album that need a new home…)
