Cora's baby book

We all got pretty spoiled for Christmas. Cora got a bunch of fun new toys and things, which she's been having fun playing with since we got home and finally let her play with them. But the main present that Ryan and I got for her was a baby book we published with an online company called Blurb. We worked on putting it together for many hours, and it turned out really nice. I thought I would show it off a little bit here, and maybe also motivate some of my readers to look into doing some digital scrapbooking as well. It's so much easier, and I think cheaper, than traditional scrapbooking, and although I spent a while putting it together, it was fairly easy and fun to do. This is what it looked like when it was done.

The table of contents page, and the copyright page - I put the lyrics to I hope you dance, by Leeann Womack on it.
I typed up journal entries from Ryan and I when we wrote about Cora's birth, and my mom also wrote about what happened, since she was there.
This is the last page of her book


  1. oh, Sarah, I just love this! I cried when I saw this post a little bit ago (how embarrassing...ha!) and thought I'd say thanks for showing it off! I got Jeff photoshop for Christmas so hopefully he'll let me use it too and I can do some digital scrapbooking :)

  2. Sarah - it looks great! I'm thinking about doing something similar for Katelyn for her first birthday. Thanks for the inspiriation. :)

  3. Wow that' awesome how did you made that i love it, i'm sure she is going to love it when she grows up and she can show it to her kids, Awesome love it!!!
