As you probably remember I wrote about how I started my first scrapbook album last year. If not, you can check out the first, second, third, forth, fifth, sixth and seventh part that I wrote about it.
I was thinking " Well, what the heck, it shouldn't be that hard", but I had no idea what I was getting into. The whole idea was that the kids have to show their life in pictures to the class on their birthday. That's how I came up with the idea- pictures+ story=scrapbook. So, last year I've filled 25 scrapbook pages - up to Kalin's 5th birthday and this year I had a lot less work, since I had to cover only the events from the past year. I chose couple of events that marked the year for Kalin:
- He got a trophy for finishing the 1000 book club ( reading 1000 books)
- We got a puppy
On this one I actually burned the edges of the pictures with a lighter. It's probably not visible from the pictures I took ( sorry, I was so in a hurry, the light was wrong, but I didn't have time to reshoot them) but when the pictures burned, the paper became orange/yellow and purple around the edges. Very, very nice effect!
- He lost his first ( and second) tooth
- For the last page I wanted to include one more picture, but the only one I had was this one, so I made it look like he is writing his wish list for the birthday party. :-)
