Baby's First Valentines Day

Last month my mom gave me my baby album.  I was thrilled to get it and couldn't wait to look through the pages.  It is full of lots of pictures, most of which are glued down and I will have to figure out how I can remove them so that I can make copies.  Packed in the back of the book were a lot of cards.  I came across two that were given to me on my first Valentines Day and I thought I would highlight them on a layout:
I based my layout on Sketch #40 at Sketchabilities.  Here is their sketch:
Here are a few close ups:


I wish the pictures could have turned out a little brighter.  It is cloudy and raining here today, not the best scenario for picture taking.

what a lovely thought and what a thoughtful Mom you had!
I have a group of cards my Mom gave my Dad when they were first together and they are pretty great...all early 70's I think! what a blast!

Debbie, you're layout is just adorable; and, your baby book from your mom -- what a wonderful gift!!! Too back the pics were glued down but I'm sure you get them out without destroying them!

Fabulous LO! I try to save my kids cards too, I will save them with the hopes of doing something with them and then a will find them months later and through them away and think "what will I actually do with these". Now I will definitely keep them and scrapbook them as well. :-)
