Makenna from the beginning





I have done many pages of Makenna, starting from my pregnancy and her birth. I'll post some pages starting from the beginning. Here are the first 4 pages. I often will do a 2-page layout. I like how this looks when the book is open, as the colors and styles and stamps all go together. I think it adds a sense of cohesiveness to the book. These first few pages contain the birth story that I typed out. It's so important to write things down, because I won't remember as much later, and those looking love to know the "real" story. Many of my pages could use more journaling. Looking back, these pages seem plain. I sometimes over-due things, so maybe I thought plainer was better. Or I was just in a hurry to get them done so I wouldn't get too far behind. Oh, well. I guess that's part of looking back and seeing my progress over the years. Hopefully, I improve as I go along!
