I saw an adorable idea over at Lu Bird Baby and decided to make a couple for my favorite babies.
I used her ideas for pictures and took pictures around our house of familiar things. It was a lot of fun trying to find things to photograph. I then added numbers to the photos in Picasa.
I found some adorable paper at Roberts and made cute covers and title pages.
I bought a $1.00 photo album at Wal-mart, but it had quite a few more pages than her example.
Izacc and I scrambled around the house looking for items of the ten basic crayon colors. It was kind of a fun game for us to play and see how many things in each color we could find. I also had enough pages to add some familiar faces of Mom and Dad, Gramma and Papa, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins, as well as the babies themselves.
(Its a good thing these kids are cousins, it made their books very similar and the personalized changes very simple)
Izacc helped so much that I figured we’d better make one for him as well. He’s so super smart and a little above learning his numbers. SO…
Let’s learn what the letter look like!
It was really a challenge to find something for every letter, but we got it done.
It was a fun and inexpensive project that the kids love.
If you’d like to make one for yourself, please feel free to use my pictures here.
There are obviously some you’ll want to personalize for yourself, unless, you know, you want a picture of my son and our dog. It’s really easy to take a picture and edit it in Picasa.
