Baby Album - The First Year

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a special post to share today - special to me that is.  I have finally finished the Scrapbook Album of my Grandson - it is from birth up to and including this first birthday party...we won't even mention that he is now 3 1/3 years old now - these things take time!! Wink:wink!

How Sweet are those images from Kaisercraft - Peek-a-Boo Boy Collectables - I could not resist them when I popped into the Outlet a little while ago and they make the perfect embellishments for the front of the Baby Album.

This is also for a challenge in a Group I am part of on facebook - Buttons, lace and Ribbons - I have got all that covered!  I have used the photo my DH created the Birth Announcement with an added a layer of Acetate over it to protect it.  This has been followed by a die cut frame using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.   The frame has been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

The embellishments have been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares and the buttons, ribbon and lace adhered using liquid glue.  This was all the album front needed to finish it and make it special.  I am sure Noah and his parents are going to enjoy looking though it an the memories it brings - I love being a Memory Keeper.
