Pregnancy Journal... scrapbook style!

This is the start of the journal I wrote when I was pregnant the first time. I thought it would be a fun way to scrapbook and remember all that happened, good and bad. Now if I would just get the last 3 months typed I'd be all set to go! Oh, and I guess it would help if I had prints of some of the 180+ belly shots and ultra sound pictures that we took. After all, what good is a scrapbook without pictures? This should be a fun project. I have 30 pages typed out in word but as you can see there will be some pages that are printed shorter, depending on the paper I print on. I was smart enough to buy 4 matching scrapbooks for this project. I wonder how many of them I will use? Better yet, I wonder how old James will be when I finish it? He's almost 28 months old now. I can't remember if I did the first page before or after he was born. As for page 2, I think I might do some highlighting to the die cutes to make them look better. Page 3 and 4 were pretty fast to do. The longest part was die cutting the flowers and popping them apart. I used a gel pen to stencil the vines and there is a little "bling" in the center of each flower. I'm sure I will keep these pages pretty simple and leave the more fancy work or the baby books.

That is definately keeping a journal of your pregnancy. Well done, that's some project to take on.

Fantastic. I should go back and do one from all my posts. :) It would take forever, but I would love the results.
