We are so happy to have Lizzy Hill join in our birthday celebrations. Shall we check out how she was inspired by LESSology Challenge #29: Birthday Party?
Hi there! I feel privileged indeed to have been invited to help celebrate LESSology’s 2nd birthday…..& what better way than with a birthday book, I reckon.
What is a birthday book? Well, I don’t know if anyone else out there has done this…but I decided for my Wonder Boy [& only grandchild!] I’d create a book that celebrated ONE photo each year on his birthday….so when he gets to be 21 I’ll have a nice little gift to give him as a ‘keepsake’…..sooooo I found an old book at the Op Shop….ripped out the middle, then folded, stitched & pasted in this little booklet.
Then I set about decorating the cover….I used the little star fish that was already on the cover as inspiration & took it from there…but I kept the colours vintage-ish & masculine….more suitable for a 21 year-old-to-be than the 1 year old he is now! So, enough chat – here’s some photos.
Of course, I’ve only done up to his first birthday….I figure fashions, even in scrapping, come & go, so each year will show a different side of his ‘Ma’ as she creates this little keepsake…so, I’ll do the pages as his life & the years unfold JJ
Ahhhh...what a clever idea to commemorate a special date every year! This is such an awesome keepsake Lizzy! :)
Ooooooooooooooooh!!! Lizzy!!! This is extraordinary!! Love love love what you did to repurpose that old book! bRAVO!

A super idea Lizzy - I love the recycled book and the simplicity of just one photo a year. A gorgeous way to mark his milestones :D
