Vicki Wizniuk's 9x9 Album...More to Adore Baby's 1st Birthday Memory Book

I found a great card from Hallmark that was designed like a memory book for a child's first birthday and I thought I could do that.  I had a 9x9 accordian album and a fantastic template and cutting guide from the wonderful Vicki Wizniuk and my niece's project was started.   I'm not 100% sure the french is right but all of my husbands family is french speaking so I wanting to honour that as much as I could.  I would love to hear what you think!

The Front Cover:

The Inside Panels:  Should read My 1st Birthday and We Celebrated By.  They will be able to store cards and tags etc in the pocket on the right side.

Last of the Inside Pages: "My Birthday Cake"

The Back Cover: "We will love you always"

I want to be called Kate...

My oldest niece is only 6 but is a very determined, strong willed girl.  She no longer wished to be called Katie but would like to be called Kate.   This is the first layout I did and actually called her Kate as she will always be Katie to me ;)

Time for a Picnic!

This layout was created by Tina Winship...We were on day 2 of our trip to Ontario and stopped for lunch at this beautiful rest stop right on the lake!  Our stop took a bit longer but was well worth it...the boys had a great time playing and we enjoyed the sunshine!

Funky Layout Swap

I participated in this really amazing swap where we sent the pieces of the layouts to each other but not the bases.  I am having a ton of fun putting them together.  This first layout was done by our hostess Tina Winship...I don't know how she had the patience to cut out all the details of this layout for 5 people but I am sure glad she did.  Let me know what you think...

I have had this overlay for 3 years now and finally found the perfect picture to use it with.  This is Josh my 3rd son when he was just a 1 day old.  We were getting ready to leave the hospital and took this picture.

swap spoilers!!!

I have been busy finishing a few swaps with my ctmh sisters and this is what I have come up with.  The first pics are from the Christmas Tag Swap hosted by Heather Hunt. 

The Stocking has hand stiched and the top was fun flocked so it's fuzzy :) 

The layout is for the fall/winter catalog 12x12 swap hosted by Twyla Norris.  I picked group No 2 so Magnifique it was.  This paper is very pretty and the stamp set included with workshop on the go kit was "friends 4 ever" which was my inspiration for the theme.  The layout design is from Cherish.

Please let me know what you think!  Have a great day!!!
