First Birthday Album

This is akw's first birthday album that I finally made (3 years later) with one of the scrapbooking kits that you can purchase here. The kit was great to use as all I had to do was follow the step by step instructions and refer to the pictures. A total no brainer, which is definitely what i needed to help me get my mojo back, I deviated on a couple of pages but for the most part I followed the instructions to the letter. I learnt a couple of new scrapbooking techniques and tricks about getting creative with a pair of scissors as well which was a bonus.  The whole album was made only from the kit contents and I have a little extra to spare.

My favourite products were the Carolee's Creations alpha stickers which a perfect for making mini albums and they look really good. I have since used the left over stickers on another 3 mini albums and 12x12 layouts. The transparencies and rubons included added that extra special touch throughout the album.

The jumpy castle. I swear these things make parties a breeze. They keep the kids contained in the one area, and you will only need one or two adults to supervise the lot of them.
