A Gift for a Gift Completed


The last pages have been completed and I've given the album to H so she can sort out getting it to her mother-in-law on Mother's Day. I honestly thought it would be harder to put together an album for someone I barely know. I sometimes struggle with my pages when I want to add journaling, so not having to worry about it on was definitely a plus. I also used up a bunch of paper that I'd been holding on to, and this time working with the 8.5"x11" actually made me think I might like to switch back to that size. We'll see!

Here are the pages for her sons with their letters. Again I kept the pages simple, and pulled in scraps from previous pages to maintain cohesiveness throughout the album. If you'd like to go back and see the other pages I've shared, you can find them HERE and HERE.



Onward to the next project!

  1. I can only imagine how hard it would be to scrapbook for someone else. I think I would have a hard time because I'd want to make it perfect. Your pages turned out great and it's going to be a very special gift. :)

  8. Elise, your friends mother is going to love this!!! I always do simple pages when I scrap for others and have to say even in my own albums those are the ones that seem to stand the test of time. Your pages are simple but elegant!

  9. This is really a wonderful project and your layouts look great ! I also like to make layouts about my nephews : I scrapbook photos that my sister sent to me so I have nothing to write about them, and as you said, in a one way, it helps ! ;)
