Marshall's Scrapbook

I decided that I wanted to make my new Grandson Marshall a scrapbook detailing his first year, I aim to take photos of him on the 30th of every months as that was the date he was born to show how he grows and develops throughout his first year, I also within this book want to have a go at producing layouts that are not my usual style, I have seen so many beautiful layouts where all the photos and embellishments only take up a small amount of the page and I wanted to have a go at something similar.

This one of two scrapbooks I am hoping to make over the course of the next year, the other one is all about me as I turn 50 in June I want to make a book about the year I am 50. This means that for once I have to be on the other end of the camera!!

Well this is the album I have decided to use for Marshall, it was a not very nice shade of Cream it said on the label but I would definitely say Yellow so I set out to cover the front of it.

I wanted Baby, I wanted Boy and not too young or too grown up, I wanted something that would take some handling without bits coming off or being damaged so this is how I have covered it

Quite plain and I may end up adding to it somewhere before it is finished.

Here is my first page, just like I have already said I wanted some white space; although the card is cream; to enhance the design on the page.

This page has a vellum envelope to hold his scan pictures.

So first one done and another 19 to go!!

What do you think then?

Beautiful job Maz! I LOVE your first page too. I to enjoy the pages with lots of white space. I look forward to seeing more pages as you progress. I have a couple more years before I turn 50, so not quite ready for that yet. I do want to go back and create a book for little Maggie of her first year. Great idea. I posted the award you gave me and left you some love. Come check it out:
