We are at that point when there's lots of new babies entering our lives... nieces & nephews, friends' children, my younger cousins are all having babies.  I'm so excited... nothing better than cuddling and loving a new baby... and then giving him/her back before they fuss!!!  It has also kept me busy in the craft room... I love giving something special to the new parents.  I made this first year album for my nephew's new little guy using the Special Delivery Collection.  

I used this file for the cover of the album.  I added a "hidden binding" to hold 12 pages.  That left me enough space to document the baby's arrival through the first birthday.  I then set to decorating pages for each month of the first year.

I love the cut apart sheet with the series of lists.  The It's a Boy section was perfect for my first pages.  And how cute is that little stork??

I created little notes using this file for each month to document baby's favorites, milestones, what's new and outings and activities.  I also added a space to document how the baby is growing... height and weight.  These were all done using the print & cut feature of my Silhouette. Each set of pages has a little flag with the month using the My Type Alphas.  All that was left was the fun part... using the Special Delivery Odds & Ends and Chit Chat pieces to decorate each set of pages.  Take a peek...

The last pages of the book celebrate baby's first birthday!  I added a few Odds & Ends from the Party Time Collection.  I love how the 2 collections coordinate seamlessly!

I can't wait to meet my new great-nephew (we always knew I was a Great-Aunt, this just solidifies it :)) I also can't wait for them to fill this book with lots of adorable photos!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
