Hello Ladies,
I am making a scrapbook for a friend of mine that is having a baby. She is not crafty but loves the things I create. I am looking for Layout suggestions and other Ideas on how to make her a book that she can easily add the pictures to once the baby is here?

Please Help!

I have a friend who does this all the time for gifts. She includes a page for the new baby pic to be added and has a printed out "worksheet" for parents to fill in the details like height, weight...

Another page for "first visitors", "bath time", and pages for pics of being fed a bottle and pics with family.

do a search for baby book.

I would do something like "the best year of our lives" and note all the firsts

First day (birth picture) with a stats sheet to fill in
First Visitors
First pic with mom & dad (bros and sis)
First pic with grandparents
First Day home
First Bath
First Smile
First Laugh
First Bottle
First Foods
Fave Foods
First day sitting up
Crawling
Walking
First night slept thru

I made one for a friend/co-worker for the first year, and did all the firsts like Glenda said. Just keep it simple, and try to use mats in 4x6, cuz that's what size most ppl print pics in. Make journaling cards/blocks, and include some adhesive and a nice acid-free marker for the journaling.
