Finally started Natalie's professional pictures book ...

Well, I wanted to start this in March, but then I got the sewing bug. Lol A couple of friends came over to crop tonight, so I got started. The first page of the book will actually be a collage photo I have of my belly shot with her (it's still on the wall - I need to get another photo to replace it with so I can get it in her book - it's probably time for me to have my belly shots with this current big belly :lol:)

Anyhow, here's what I got done tonight ... funny to see my currently blond child so dark haired ...

8 days old

One Month

Two Months (I really love this two page spread!!!)

You know what's funny? I think she hasn't changed much at all. Most babies don't look the same, but she really does. I can tell that's her! She's so precious! That 2 page spread is awesome! I love your professional books.

BTW...you mentioned big belly- WHERE'S THE PICS! Wink

Great work. I love your idea of a professional pic scrapbook so much that I have started one for Brooklynn. Hopefully I can eventually go back and do them for the other three. Thanks for the great idea.

Sadie - here's my 28 week pic from last Sunday. Winkhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v145/coolmama72/gwen/belly%20shots/gwenbelly28weeksbare.jpg

After doing those pages last night, I don't want to sew this week ... but I JUST got my new sewing machine on Friday and I want to take it out of the box. What's a girl to do?!

I think it would be so neat to see these professional books IRL. With all the pages, etc. because I love what you are doing with them. The One Month page (2nd LO) is my favorite probably, because I LOVE the picture and how well you matched up the pp. But I also love the two-pager! The technique of putting some of the title into the photos is quickly becoming one of my favorite things. Smile
It looks like you got a lot done at your crop. Wink YAY!

Great looking pages!! I love the pink and blue combination together! OH, and I love the belly pic!!! (I love belly pictures!!) Too bad I already looked like 5 months along - it sucks having an apple shaped body.. but I digress. Smile

Charys, you're welcome to visit any time and look at my books in person. Smile

Oh, and I should have mentioned, the mat and title paper are both edged in bronze ink on the one month page - looks neat in person!

What time is dinner? WinkLOL, I wish!!!!

I thought that edging looked like something other than black. I bet it's so pretty! Was it bronze ink pad or pen? I think I may have a bronze pen, and I want to try that too!

thanks girls!

Ashley - it's been on my list for a while Lol It was one of my March scrapbooking goals that got pushed to April. I really want to get it all caught up before Jack arrives in July ...

Charys - I used bronze stamp ink. It's in a set with gold and silver, I just tend to use it for edging.

Gwen--First off--I CANNOT get over how much Nat looks like Jordan!!
I ALWAYS do a double take when you post pics of Jordan when she was younger..I also forgot the Nat's hair was soooo dark!!

Of course I just love your pages!!! The 2nd LO is my fav..love the close up pic and pretty paper.:D

Awww, look at her. She was so precious (still is). I'm impressed by how dark her hair was as a baby. When did it change?

Looks like around 5-6 months ... by 11 months she definitely is blond. You'll see more of the progression of the hair color change if I can get my act together and get more pages done for that book. Just got pictures printed, and have about 6 layouts to do for the family book.
