Happy Birthday J

The other day was my eldest's birthday and he has reached double figures. How did that happen?

I decided a while ago that cards for birthday's etc were wasted on my family of boys. They were not overly appreciated or kept so it seemed a little pointless in doing them. So I came up with the idea to scrap them an 8 x 8 page for each birthday and that way I have a momento to go in their albums each year.

I write a personal message on the back of each one so that in years to come they can read my messages and they are there for future generations.
It is always a rather simple page and done at the 11th hour. But I think it is a great idea for a family who houses a scrapbooker. And the boys seem to like it :)

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Oh wow Alex, that layout is perfect. The photo is such a great focal point and you have blended the colours around it so well.

    Double figures? Princess is there in two years time, I am in complete denial!
