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**

Below is the detail of Tirza’s calendar.
Photos taken on March 2009 when she brought home Eeyore, a class friend’s take home journal. Every student had to write about their 2 days experience while Eeyore at home and below are their photo session at mom’s private studio..

I’m having lunch for a few minutes, when I’m back at my computer, there are two fishes at my keyboard.

“We lost” the blue fish said. “We have to go home now, or we will die. My friend, the green fish, already find a way and the fastest way is through here.. I hope you’re ok”

“OK” I said (still shocked)

Their friends follow them.

“Thanks, Lydia” said the green fish.

I think that there is something wrong with my lunch!!!

On thanksgiving day, usualy I list down the things that I thankful for. After discovery digital scrapbooking, I make a layout. Usualy I make a layout to list the things that I thankful for. This time, I try to make a mini mini album!!!!
