Truthfully, I'm not all that happy with many of these pages but they're done and that's good.
First - this is the weekly cleaning chart that I made for myself. I am horrible about getting things done outside of the normal, everyday stuff. This has actually helped. When the task is done, turn the tag over and it says "done" on it.
I'm working on Morgan's baby book - yes, she is SIX years old - I'm a bit behind. I did these two calendar pages and then intended on doing a page or double page spread for each "first".
One of the pages that I'm uninspired by but just don't know how to make it better.
For each of the kids I do a birthday book. I do layouts for each year's party and they are all in one book. It's the one book that actually gets to be updated as I only have layouts once a year. LOL. Morgan's 6th birthday was at a place called Sweet & Sassy. here are the layouts (faces blocked out are not okay for internet).
I hate that I added the handwritten text on this!!!! The stuff at the top is what they said about Morgan as she walked the runway.
This is when Morgan opened the tickets to see Hannah Montana in concert.
There ya have it - nothing overly involved. Sometimes I wish I could do those fancy pages that you see in the scrappin' magazines.

I think all your pages look great!!! I love the weekly cleaning schedule calender. I should do that for myself too. You made it fun by using art material to make it rather than just writing it down on paper or typing it up! Thanks for the ideas and sharing w/ us!
I love all of them! I'm definitely copying the weekly cleaning schedule!
I will be scraplifting the year of Firsts

Andie - you've been busy, hooray ! Love the calendar, great idea. My kids would destroy something like that if I had it (hate to admit it, but it's true). And the calendar of firsts came out awesome! I love how you used the pictures in "first" did you trace them to cut them? Morgan's birthday pages look terrific, what a fun birthday. You really captured it well.

I love the "Year of Firsts" calendar pages! I can use that for other things too! Thanks for that idea! And the birthday album is awesome! How cool for your kids that they get to have a keepsake like that!

I love the monthly calender idea thats cute
Love the Year of Firsts - what a great idea and it came out beautifully! I really like all your pages. There is something to be said for simple and clean.

The calendar year of firsts is just perfect! I love how "first" is cut out of her pics! You did so well! I will copy that for our next child! I LOVE the sweet pics of her opening her tickets! I love the LOs and pics of her party! I think you did a WONDERFUL job on all of them! TFS!
