Ken's Mom was one of those Mom's who put
together books for each of her children. The two
pictured above are the one's that Janie made for
Ken. The red one was made from birth to five
and the brown one was made through grade
school. As you can see from the picture below,
Janie kept all the cards that were received when
he was born and then she put them is this book.
I had several of these type books myself but mine
were "goobered" up in a house fire. (before Ken)
I was able to save a lot of the things in them though.
Now we have all the "fancy stuff " to make scrapbooks.
All the products are "scrapbooking " safe, so nothing
gets ruined. Most paper and clear paper sleeves are
acid free. We still have the picture corners to hold
pics, there are all types of glue, glitter and other
"blingy stuff" for scrapbooking.
I have good intentions where this hobbie is con-
cerned but I tend to let myself get waaaaaaay
overwhelmed and then I don't finish what I start.
I have managed to make two that can be added
to . One is in the picture below--it is our engage-
met/wedding/5 , 10, year anniversary book.
I have also made one for Ken's birthdays.
(forgot to get a picture :( )
our dating and then getting "the ring".
Which with much duress on Ken's part
was found in the bottom of my Easter
Most people use a theme when making a book.
Some are: births/birthdays, adoptions, school
years, sports, holidays, vacations, special events
and much, much more.
If you are a scrapbooker--Enjoy the day!
