Design Mom - who, let's face it, does not have time to come and accept this, but is well deserving.
Tongue in Cheek - where I get my dose of poise and grace.
Smart Mama - just check out her art link in my sidebar.
24-7-365 - who's link I need to put in my sidebar, because I just swoon over her photography.
Happy Things - love her Year of Color project!

There are so many fun things you can do with photos for your children. I've made and received a few books/albums that have become cherished, prized possessions. Below are some of the layouts from those books.
The first was made for my now 5 year old. His transition to becoming a big brother was not a smooth one. This is one of the many ways that I tried to make that change easier for him. We talked a lot about what it was like when he was a baby, and he loved to look at pictures of himself as a baby- eating, crying, sleeping. It really helped him understand his new baby brother a little better.
I made this book for Sasha and gave it to her on her first birthday. If she's anything like her siblings, she'll love looking at these pictures of herself and seeing how fast she's grown.
I just love this book that my sister-in-law made. She used the text from a children's book called "I Love You Through and Through" by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak, and inserted very apropos pictures of my son as illustrations.

The one on the left is made from oilcloth. I drew the scalloped edge and cut by hand. The one on the right is similar to oilcoth, with a much smoother texture. I used crimping sheers on that one. Both are water repellant. Punched two holes at the top of each, and knotted some cute ribbon through them. Voila! Simple tie-on bibs that your baby won't yank off so easily. Let me know what you think, these may be the next summer give-away!
