So, I'm trying to be a Good Tutu (Grandma)

So, I have this wonderful grandson - Ryder.  He turned 1 in November and I had planned on making him a memory book of his first year....didn't happen.  Since I'm a teacher by day and I'm off right now, I decided to make him a 2010 memory book....here's how it turned out.




















I did each page pretty simple, but I still think it turned out great!  His daddy and he will appreciate it someday!  I plan to go to CVS today to take advantage of the BOGO (buy one, get one free) sale they have on Kodak books, plus I have a BOGO coupon, so technically, I should get 2 books for free!! One for Ryder & his Daddy and one for ME! We will see!

Time it took to make pages - a few hours & hours 
Memories documented and preserved = Pricele$$

I party with all these great ladies every week...go check them out & party on!!

  3. I'm a teacher too, and it seems like I somehow get even less done with all the time off for break...I guess I do better with some structure, ha! Such a cute book!

  8. It will become his favorite story book all about him. My grands have done their own scrapbook pages and I made them one where they are bobble head characters and they love looking at themselves. So cute.
