Baby's First Year Album

I made this book for my aunt for the baby's first year. It is not all my idea, I scraplifted the ideas from the Cricut Message Board before it changed to the new one. I am extremely happy with the way it turned out!!! There are lots and lots of pictures!

I used New Arrival, Don Juan, and Calligraphy for the entire book.

Thanks for coming by!!

Aunt's Pregnancy Album

So,  I started a pregnancy album for my aunt when we found out she was pregnant last October. She is now due in 1 month and had her baby shower last sunday. I had so much fun!! Last time I saw her I asked to bring the book so that I could work on it. I have been working on this book for so long. Here is the book... It was made with the Life's A Beach Cartridge and there are lots of pictures. 

Please let me know what you think. The whole book was made with Life's A Beach and Don Juan.
