8x8 album for FIL

I originally started an 8x8 album with pics of the girls from birth to give as a gift for my FIL's (aka Granddaddy) birthday, which is May 1st. I made a complete 20 page album the first year (you know it tapers off after that!) The next year I purchased another album and made 12 LOs; I scrapped the best pics from each month. The next year I created more pages the same way and started on the 3rd album. Then life got in the way, and May 1st, 2007 I had no pages made for him. (I had to get a store bought gift!) So last Christmas I had some pages for him completed through December 2006. Well, May 1st, 2008 I gave him the SU! school album (http://simplyelegantpapercrafts.blogspot.com/2008/05/bitty-board-books.html) because I still had not made pages. I knew he would be here visiting from NC this weekend (he never misses the girls' birthday), so this past week I got busy. The pages I made from Jan-May 2007 were okay, but this was one of my favorite LOs I made for June 2007. BTW, I completed album #3 with all the new LOs (21 total). I finished scrapping my favorite pics of the girls through July 2007 for now.
I gotta get back to making cards for the coffee shop :)
