Baby Scrapbook Big Event Pages – Milestones
A baby scrapbook full of nothing but the major events is a book of clichés. A steady march of the usual scrapbooking baby pages from hospital, to home, to first bath, to first crawl, to first solid foods, to first steps, and so on ending with birthday cake on baby's face is a monument to blandness. Sure, the cuteness of your little angel will probably salvage the whole thing, but why be standard, when your baby is so much more than that?
Having said that, no baby scrapbook is complete without those "big moments" like that first feeding, and definitely those first steps. A great scrapbook doesn't eliminate those baby pages, but rather includes other pages in between that include big moments for YOUR BABY, and for YOU. While you're at it, try to make some of your baby's milestone event pages a little different.
Whatever the subject, making a classic better is often best done by simply adding a little something, or taking a little something away, rather than recreating the whole concept from scratch. For example, a Baby’s First Steps scrapbook page often includes little graphics of baby feet or baby shoes. For a different take on the theme try using OTHER footsteps. For a big lumbering baby walking early with heavy steps, try dinosaur footprints. For a small kiddo whose stride seems more elegant, skip the footprints altogether and show your baby walking on clouds. Does your baby walk a little duck-footed? Yeah, I don’t know what to do with that either :)
