Our eldest son was born 2 months early and I had to record the photos on this special page. It features him (and me!) right before and right after he was born.

To create the page, I used regular scissors to trim the photos--3 of which were Poloroids, and then cut my own frames with 'baby paper' and using an exacto-knife.  I also used an acid free gluestick to paste them on the acid free paper.

This page is of his High School Graduation in 1998.  I used the gluestick once again to poste on his Graduation announcement, and a star-shape 'frame' that you can buy from packages in scrapbooking stores. Acid free gel pens were used to write on all the pages.



This page was made using the normal techniques, but I also cut the edge of the photos using special scrapbooking pinking shears.  This way I didn't have to make frames at all.  I could just paste the photos on top of a plain shape and it looks pretty neat!
