I've been meaning to posts these...

for a long time. Way back in October I made an album with MDS of my son's 'second' year (from his first birthday to his second birthday). I still have only printed out 1 of them, but I will be ordering about 8 more soon-ish. I started this trend when I decided to make a gift album for his great grams and then my twin aunts asked if they could have one too since they live so far away (Saudi Arabia) and don't get to see him very much. Then my mom's other siblings asked for a copy and I added my Mom, Dad and his wife, and my in-laws and I ended up making 10 of them. Sadly, this was before I started digital scrapbooking so I did all 10!!! of them the traditional way.... and let me tell you, had it not been for my hubby I am sure I would still be doing them. I realized about 13 days before the twins came home for a visit, if I had them all done I could give them out in person instead of mailing them all. I ended up working day and night on them, but after the last 3 all nighters we finally got them done.

I will never again do something so stupid. From now on I am doing MDS albums for them and then they can buy them and have them shipped directly to them. It saves so much time.

I have actually gone back in and changed a few LO's like this one, and added more journaling and swapped out a couple pics to make it better suit the intended recipient. I also love that I can change things that I never would be able to in real life. The animal print paper is from the hoppy memories kit and is actually orange on orange, but if you add it as a photo instead of as a page layer, you can make it B&W, Sepia, Red tinted or Blue tinted.

I will be posting a few more of these LO's in the coming days. If you have any questions about MDS please leave me a comment and I will try my best to answer it.

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
