My "Baby" - A scrapbook album

I started a baby album the other day. Big deal right? Well, that "baby" is 19 years old and getting ready to graduate in about 4 weeks.

Nothing like a looming deadline to get you to do something you should have done 17 years ago - kinda like taxes.

I've been saving this paper and album kit for literally like 6 years. No REALLY! I'm determined to use up some of my stuff that I've been saving for way too long.
Sometimes it gets to the point that it's no longer fun, cute and definitely not "fresh" when you sit on it for 6 years.

Forgive the photos. everything seems really blue... and really dark for some reason.

Sticker letters are by Doodlebug - my fav letters - Loopy Lou

Yes I actually kept these little tags for 19 years! I am proud I never lost them. I did have a newspaper, that had been stored in tanner's old room. One day he cleaned his room and trashed it, he didn't realize it was something I was saving :(

More pretty old stuff. This is a Heidi grace acrylic that I bought maybe 4 years ago. I've been saving baby boy stuff for years anticipating getting this album done and now that I have it, a lot of it I don't like anymore!! *sad panda* But I do still love this little accent. Cute!

I think I still have some of this glitter on my face!

Glitter by Martha Stewart, and REALLY OLD tag from Rebbecca Sower

Scalloped circles are from the archivers line. I could have done it on my cricut, but I already had these left over from the wedding invites. Feety stickers - again, really old stock from EK Success Stickerpotomous

The album, plain letter stickers and all the paper is from SEI. This is a landscape album (11 x 8.5 instead of 8.5 x 11). They are kinda hard to find still, so I've had these forever.
