Baby Photobooks

A memory book, family recipe book, Christmas memory book or scrapbook makes a thoughtful and unique gift for any occasion. A few years ago I made a Memory book for friends. After 20 years we have shared mountains of memories. This year I finished three family recipe books - one for each son. I started with three identical books and used my computer to write the recipes. That way I could print the recipes out in threes. I used protective sleeves and embellished with family photos, scrapbook papers, and cut outs. I collected favorite recipes from different sources and added some stories as well. Their baby books were good sources of stories and anecdotes. I didn't add page numbers so that I could add to the book in the years to come. Once all the recipes were printed out I sorted them into 'chapters' and added a Table of contents. Perhaps it would be fun to create a cookbook just for desserts, party ideas, or one for Christmas recipes and memories. Another option would be to insert collected recipe cards into the photo albums with 4 x 6 sleeves.
