I think I mentioned my plan to make a scrapbook as a Christmas gift for my aunt and uncle who became Grandparents for the first time in February.
Their DiL has a serious back condition which meant she was advised not to try and have a baby, much as she loves children and desperately wanted a family. Eventually she and my cousin decided that it was worth the risk to be able to have the baby they so much wanted. She had loads of troubles during her pregnancy and I think my aunt and uncle were too scared of what might happen to get really excited until the very last minute. But the story has a happy ending and little Sam arrived safely - and he is just adorable!
I've not really been able to justify getting into scrapbooking so this little chap has given me the excuse to have a go, but not have to find space in our house for the finished album!
This is my very first scrapbooking effort it's for an 8x8 album - seemed much less daunting than those BIG monster sized books! Up till now I've only done some pages in a Circle Journal - and not many of those - so please be gentle with me........
