I finally finished the last 3 months' worth of puppy pages. I hope Gavin likes his album. I want to add more to it eventually, but at least he has his first 12 months. It's done just in time for his 2nd birthday!

Here's Gavin's pages for months 7,8, and 9. You can see that puppy is not with him for month 7, but we were on vacation and puppy didn't make the trek with us overseas. Hopefully next week I'll finish the last 3 lay-outs and have his first year all ready to give him for his second birthday. However, with Thanksgiving this week followed by the official kick off to the Christmas season I have a lot to do!

Here's Gavin's Puppy Picture Pages for months 4, 5, & 6. I think I did them too simply this time. I didn't double mat the pictures, or add any borders, or pattern papers. I think I relied to heavily on the cute little accents. Even though I still don't feel great, and I want to get these pages done in a hurry, I still want to do a good job so Gavin will want to keep this book forever. Hopefully next week's pages will turn out better, and hopefully Gavin will like them all anyway.

When I was pregnant with Kaleb & Noe, my visiting teacher gave me this stuffed puppy dog. Each month of their first year I took a picture of them with it to chart their growth. After Gavin was born, I had to do the same for him. Well, now he'll be 2 next month, and baby #4 is already on the way. I really need to finish his baby book. Here's the 1st 3 months:
I worked at a Scrapbook store 7-8 years ago, and during that time I collected A LOT of scrapping supplies. I know they're old school now, but I think they're fine for a baby book. Plus, the way I'm feeling these days- simple is way better! I know the pics of the pages aren't the best quality, but I can't be bothered to scan them in now- sorry. Hopefully, I'll get the next 9 lay-outs done soon.
