Creative Memories Baby Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Creative Memories Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from the Creative Memories Traditional Blog you are in the right place!  This the second hop for this Blog Hop event.  


So you know the old saying that with every child you have you take less photos? Well not always true! When our first two children were born all those years ago, I wasn't a scrapbooker, but when our third was born I had been a consultant for 6 years so I was going to take all of the “right” photos this time. Now, don't get me wrong, I took lots and lots of photos of Lauren and Ben, but with Grant I went a little overboard, shall we say. In the first month of his life I took 1000 photos and I know this because of being able to look that up on Memory Manager.

Well I didn't just store the photos in Memory Manager, I have made beautiful albums about Grant. So, two StoryBooks created in Storybook Creator 4.0, an 8 x 8 traditional album, an ABC album, paper albums and two 12 x 12 albums later I am still not caught up on Grant's photos. Grant is now seven years old and in his albums he is only about 20 months old.

I love when Creative Memories comes out with new baby products, because I get inspired to work on my backlog of baby and toddler photos of Grant. With the NEW It's a Boyproducts I am determined to bring Grant's albums up to date. I love that all of these products coordinate and look beautiful together and I can do some pages digitally and some traditionally and they will looking amazing together in Grant's album. The digital products will help me get caught up quickly!
