Although I have been trying hard to record every little moment with my little one in my memory, things have already started to slip off my mind. The fact is that I’m just so tired handling her most of the time , I can hardly focus on keeping everything in my memory and that is where the idea of maintaining a journal comes in.
I have 12 sections for each month of my baby’s first year in this jounal which I labelled using tabs. Lots of gorgeous Echo Park – For the Record(Documented) Collection papers, Fabriano cardstock, some gorgeous handmade sheets from Jaipur(I have been saving these for quite some time now) and 12 envelopes(one for each month) to hold more pictures or other memorabilia.
My plan is to jot down anything and everything that I would want to remember and look back later. Since I get my photos printed online, I plan on getting them printed monthly and adding them to the album at the end of each month. That way I see myself to be more organized 🙂
NOTE: Since my photos for the past months haven’t arrived yet, I will update this post with a couple of inside pages when I have completed them. I just want to show you how well this idea works *wink*
I used the color scheme from For the love of crafting Challenge#10 – color bingo (I chose row 2 – blue, green and neutral) and the shabby chic style for Colleen’s Challenge at Yvonne’s blog with pearls and lace.
I also kept in mind The ItsyBitsy Big B Challenge(I used beads, bling and bow) which I had now wanted to play along with for quite some time.
I think this would be a great gift for a new mom or mom-to-be and a wonderful gift for baby showers 🙂
Hope you liked it!
