september 7th is my felicia’s birthday and i just finished scanning old photos of her a few days before (due to my broken terrabyte harddisk).

i decided a scrapbook album is a perfect gift for her

well… then… i created an artsy ‘aged’ papers, edited some photos, added a few embelishments, carefully choose bible verses, printed them, cut it into 5″x7″, bound it and taaadaaaaaa…

mom’s handmade album for felicia’s 12th birthday

but, hey…! it’s not just an album! it also a journal book… because i added some sketch papers and envelopes there.
felicia loves to write stories and i think it’s gonna be fun if she write on a journal book full of her old photos

i printed all photos with Epson L800, bound it with zutter, and added 2 piece matte/frosted plastic covers.

why 5″x 7″??
felicia said it’s perfect for her hands. not too small and not too big.
tirza said it’s cute.
i said it’s easy for me to print at fuji or kodak printing service; in case i doesn’t have a printer at home.

this is the opening page.
she’s so cute, isn’t it??… looking at this photo makes me realize how time flies so fast!

she’s start to crawling…
**i do my best to rescue those old photos.
most of the original were already blurred and spotted**

learning to walk

my photogenic…

… i regreat we didn’t had a digital camera at that time.

i start a digital era… with borrowed digi-camera from my sister in law…haha

first day of school!!

my little photo model.

**but mom always win**

happy twelfth, dear….

    such fun to see her grow into a young lady through the pages.
    I love your cover page too and such a good idea to add those clear see through pages.
