I Haven't Been This Excited About a Project in a Long Time!!!

I had this idea a few months ago, but I only got started on it last week.

I knew it would be quite an undertaking...I anticipated it would take me close to a month (working off and on as I'm usually only able to do).

Once I pulled all the pictures I wanted to consider, though (which was the most time-consuming part), I have found myself working on this every spare moment.

So what is it that's keeping me up at night???

A new photobook, which I think I'll entitle "The ABC's of A & B".

A is for Baby A.
B is for Baby B.
C is for cats.
D is for Daddy.
E is for eating. get the idea.

I'm more than halfway through, and I just had to share a couple of page layouts...

"I is for ice cream."

"O is for orchard."

I think the girls will get a huge kick out of this...and I know Hubby and I will, too.

I cannot wait to have the final product in hand!!!

(I'm doing this book through Shutterfly, as I have each quarter since the girls were born.  This is not a sponsored post...just wanted to share what's keeping me busy!)

darling Mandy, don't give me any ideas for photos :)

I veer towards slightly obsessive and could so easily always "have a project" :) :)


I want to know how you picked the letters. So c could be car, camera (probably in my house), CRY!

Oh how I love this!!
I'm currently gathering all the baby photos to start a big project life style photo book. I feel that I'm in waaaaaaay over my head!

Another wonderful idea to "steal" from Ms Mandy E ;).

Love it & I think your babies will too

I did this for the twins when they were littler. I had a really hard time with X. I used Xylophone (and had to buy them one and take pictures of it first!)

So cute! I made something like this for my classroom years ago, but just with good ol' construction paper! ha! (it was before photo books were around) We made it together with the students deciding what items should be on each page/letter. It was fun and I still have the book sitting around somewhere!

I'm just excited to finally have my 3's first year books done! Maybe I can work on getting 1 for each year since done (just of all of us - not one for each kid!). my free time between kids, classes, sleep, etc :-)

Photo book I've never been able to get one done, indecisiveness on my part and probably using the wrong software. It just seems like too much hardwork!
