emma's first year

one of my soon-to-be sisters-in-law is a soon-to-be mommy and today was her baby shower. unfortunately, we do not live close enough for me to go but we sent her gifts (of course!) and one was a handmade album for Emma's first year. there are 12 pages that each hold a 4x6 photo and feature a different animal from the create a critter cart. there are also pockets on the inside of the front and back cover, as well as slide outs between the pages with more pockets and little journaling cards. this was so fun to make and I hope Emma, and her parents, love it!!!
 I put little sticky tabs so it is easier to add photos. just peel of the blue pieces and stick them on! :)
 the pieces that overlap the photo mattes are not glued down so the pictures can slide right behind them.
here are all the pullouts with pockets. some of the journaling cards say things like "the things I love" and "remember when..." for the last page so they can reflect on the first year of Emma's life!
The End.
