Celebrate Life Album

As part of the 'Something from [almost] Nothing' class there is an option to make an album called 'Celebrate Life'........I hadn't intended to make an album for this class.......just make a big dent in my stash making pages for albums already started.
But......while sorting through my photos.....I realize I've got a lot of photos [mainly pre-digital] of my children's birthdays........sometimes only a single one.....sometimes a series of photos.......I'd really like to get them scrapped....and this class is a perfect time to do it.
It also means I won't have to be searching/deciding which photos to use each day........just deciding which birthday!!
And if a birthday doesn't 'Celebrate Life'......then I don't know what does........even if it doesn't fit in with the actual prompts!!!
Again have used some papers that I've had for a very long time.......also gone with the circle theme again....am really loving that........plus used up some more brads........and the scraps from this will be perfect for making cards.

Jacky - that's a splendid idea turning the "celebrate life" theme into birthday pages! And a great way to scrap those pictures and use up a lot of old stash. Have fun with it!

Great ideas--both the birthday pages and the circles as a mat for the title.

It's great, Jacky :-) And a fab twist on the Celebrate Life album idea, too!

I'm waiting till the end before making my album - I do like the idea, but I want to be clearer where I'm going with it before I begin! Plus I get to see what everyone else has done and get inspired by their ideas too ;-)

I like how Shimelle is teaching you how to use up your stash. And, the birthday theme is a great way to treasure those memories.
