To make it easier to read about our trip to Ireland, I have made a page that is just for that. There is a tab above for Ireland Trip 2014 or click on the Home tab to read my other posts.

Emmett Book for Great Grandma

A little while back my Mom asked me to put the 
pictures etc. that she had of the latest addition to our family,
Emmett, into a book for her.
I'm sure she didn't expect me to make a scrapbook
from scratch, but that's what I did.
I finished it tonight and I love how it turned out.
The over all size is 11 1/2" x 8 3/4"
I made the covers with chipboard and covered them with 
scrapbooking paper.
(If you click on the pictures, you will see them larger.)
Here is his birth announcement.
This is the invitation to the shower. 
The shower was held after he was born, because
Emmett was a welcome surprise and was adopted.
He was the missing piece in the family.
I made the puzzle piece "thank you" notes for the 
shower tables.
Here's a "Happy Spring" card that Emmett sent out
and the first time he met Great Grandma at.....
his baptism party.
More pictures at his party with Grandma and
Great Grandma.
Happy little guy!
Thanksgiving and Christmas were
joyful.
The turkeys and the ornaments were stamped, colored and
fussy cut, then adhered to the pages.  I used
home made bakers twine to 'hang' the ornaments.
February 2, 2016 was a very special day for our family,
Emmett will forever be a member of our family.
And look at that adorable little Valentine!
Renee, his Mom is "into" mustaches, so I added one along
with glasses to a picture for some 'silly fun'
And Emmett is one year old already!
The party theme was Doc McStuffins
and we all had a great time.
I made those little band-aids and I think they turned
out pretty cute.
I love the picture of him sitting on the huge turtle.
And yes, that is a real turtle!
They had a reptile lady come with a bunch of
cool animals.
These are the most recent pictures that I have 
of Emmett.
Is he just too cute or what?!?!?!
I also put in some extra pages that we can add more
pictures as we have them.
I think Mom is going to love this little scrapbook
about Emmett.
I know it will be looked at over and over.

Thanks for stopping by today,
come again soon.
Until then, kreate something wonderful!
