    i made a scrap book for my best friend when she was pregnant and i brought it to the shower...every page had stickers and a baby theme and i passed it around and had everyone write a note to the baby. After the shower was over there were tons of pages filled with notes. Her daughter is 4 now and says she still takes it out to see what people wrote.

    Super cute, April. What kind of album did you use?

    I recently made a accordian tag album for DH's valentines gift. We celebrated 10yrs last October. Our trip to WDW was our "gift" to each other, so the VD gift celebrates our 10 years.

    I will try to scan and post it soon.

    Not sure if this counts, but I made calendars for Christmas and gave them out as gifts to the grandparents. They were made digitally. They are all visible at: http://home.insightbb.com/~baity-scr...7calendar.html

    Ok, here is DH's Valentines gift (he really liked it). I will probably post this in several entries due to the number of pictures.


    Our 10th anniversary was in Oct 06. Our WDW trip was our gift to each other.


    Supplies: accordian tag album with box-Oriental Trading, cardstock and pattern paper-assorted (most came from my stash, so I don't know makers), chipboard stickers-ABCs of Love by Cloud 9 Design and Love Blossoms shapes with glitter by Heidi Grace, sticker and frame (1997) by Kathy Davis, letter stickers-unknown, ribbon-Downtown Red collection by American Crafts, number stamps-Making Memories, stamps-With All My Heart by Hero Arts.

    Here is the title page and 1996 and 1997.

    Sorry about the scans--they are kind of blurry because the tag book it chipboard and kind of thick.

    1998, 1999, 2000 & 2001

    This is kind of depressing--as soon as our DS was born I couldn't find any pictures of just the two of us. All the pictures were either the three of us, DS and me or DS and DH (but mostly just DS ).
