Has anyone ever done one? My BFF is 10 weeks preggo and I was thinking of doing a first year one. I guess just doing the titles and then leaving space for her to journal and add pics. Do you think that would be a nice gift? It will most likely be an 8X8 or 6X6 because I have to mail it to her.
yes we're making one for hubby's niece who is getting married next year. It will be like you described...some titles but quite basic in case something doesn't quite fit into what we title...just lots of decorative bordering, mats etc. Let us know what you come up with
yes, I made one for my older sister when she was pg with her first and then I am getting ready to start one for my younger sister who is pg. I did an "A to Z it's all about me" book. A is for arrival, B is for Blessing(Baptism), C is for crying, D is for Dr (1st dr. visit), etc...
It worked out really well considering I didn't know if she was having a boy or girl. Sometimes I had one letter taking up both pages, some times there were 2 letters per LO. I don't have any pictures of it yet, but I hope to get some soon. I gave it to her without taking pictures of it.
My Mom and I came up with all of the different things to go with different letters, if you are interested in all of the letter, pm and I will be happy to share. Some of the ideas I got out of a magazine.
I have done 2 - one for my sis-in-law when she got her BA degree and one for a friend who adopted a baby from Korea. They both were 8x8 size and were fairly easy to create.

With my first baby (only), I did borders/titles, so it's been alot easier to finish his album, since the majority was done. My sil has done that with both her boys.
I would love to get that as a gift!
