Fenn's Baby Book

I spoke in an earlier post about reviving my Scrapbooking Skills and that will continue on for Fenners. I do not plan to deprive my son of the detailed documentation of his first year and have really been into a certain style scrapbook that I saw HERE ON THIS BLOG. The problem is... these bad boys are $150!! ( yes you read that right) and I just couldn't pull the trigger. My friend Nicole also sent me this site that is a little cheaper at $99 ( before monogramming) but in the end I decided to test my crafting skills that have been shelved since December and see if I could make my own. My Momma sent me this great link of a tutorial. Creativity has never been my problem in life, its the planning ahead and execution of details that I mess up on. Mom and Erik both balance that for me. Thanks Ya'll!


So I have made the book , and you know it's not half bad... but before I took it to the monogrammers, Nicole tells me about this site called The Pink Giraffe. Yes Please! It has tons of awesome monogram-ness but also some very affordable Scrapbooks and baby books and so I think I will probably just order one from her and call it a day! After shopping for materials and such, ya'll can trust me when I say this is an excellent price for this book!
And another really cool idea, that I have never tried but am very interested in is from the site called Big Day Books. Basically, from what I can tell, it is a site where you can make scrapbooks online and have them printed out onto paper. Does anyone know about this site or have any feedback?

And for even more Photo ideas you can read this excellent post on Magnolias, Marriage & Manhattan Blog!

I'm sure you're aware of this, but you can make scrapbooks in iPhoto and have them printed and sent to you. Probably won't be as cute as you'd like though. I've made one just playing around, but never ordered it.

how does the monogramming work once you put the fabric onto the book? I really wanted the book megan has book it is too expensive. I might have to try this.
