Scrapbook Saturday

On Saturdays I try really hard to get some scrapbooking time in, but with a 7 month old who wants to be held all the time, and a 2 1/2 year old who wants to help me, I dont get much done. That never stops me from thinking about it ALL day long.

Each of my children have an album and on their birthdays every year we pull it out to look at it. So I like to make sure that I've added a few pages, sort of as a gift to them. My husband seems to make allowances for my time as birthdays get close because he knows how important that is to me.

I've been working on a few pages for Kati since her birthday is just a few days away. I did two pages of her newborn days. I just need to add the journaling. Since I've done the first two pages of her scrapbook, and they need to be side to side, I feel like I need an opening page.

What do you put as your dedication page? Show me, or detail it for me, and the best idea gets a RAK.

Hi from a fellow pea! I usually write a letter to who my album is about. I tend to write why I making the album. For example for my son I told him I wanted to be able to look back on of the funny/cute things he did growning up. I kept it pretty short and sweet! Hope this helps.

You could do a photo of her as a newborn, and list her birth info there, or a family tree type of page showing your family tree going back to great-grandparents.

The dedications pages, for the albums that are my daughters', I have written a poem to each of them. Just telling them that I made the album out of love for them and out of the joy of watching them grow!!!

For my niece's book, I wrote the words to the song "A Whole New World" on the dedication page. I'm trying to find a similar song for my nephew -- it's a little cliche, but I'll probably pass along the words to "What a Wonderful World."
