Thank You Becky Higgins: Simplifying My Baby Album
I wanted to capture all the milestones of that first year, the joy he brought to our family, and the surprise we had that he was born with Down syndrome. I wanted to do justice to the journey we embarked on in July 2010, a journey that is different, but even more special than we had anticipated.
I have several baby-themed products on hand. However, I could not decide if I wanted to stick with one color and paper theme throughout or just do each page as it inspired me. Finally, I laid every picture from that first year out in front of me determined to decided on a direction. I picked a color theme and decided I would include collage type page protectors, such as those in the Project Life system, along with traditional 12x12 pages and I would use other page kits as needed to tell the story. Next weekend, I decided, I would begin power sorting (planning pages and gathering supplies but not actually putting them together).
Then, I was given a gift. I read Becky Higgins blog and watched the video announcing her new baby line for Project Life! Eureka! Problem solved! This system is so cool and so simple, it is a must-have for anyone wanting to capture their baby's first year and a necessity for moms who have more than one child.
The only problem is now I have to wait until the product is available later this year, and be sure I have money in my spending account, so that I can order it as soon as it is posted on Amazon! Her kits have a history of selling out in minutes and I am sure these will be top sellers.
