OK, I need help here...  I started putting together scrapbook pages while I was pregnant with Rachel.  I bought it on our vacation last year in Maine.  My plan was that if I had all the pages ready, I could quickly print up the pictures from her birthday and get them all in to her book in time for her funeral to display.  Yeah... I'm always planning big... but this wasn't something I was able to do.

So, I have only about 8 pages made and ready for pictures and no pictures in it.  I just haven't been able to get back to it. The entire situation with pictures is stressing me out!  I know that I need to get this done before Asa comes or it's likely never going to happen... and I'm not a scrapbooker, this is my first attempt so it's overwhelming, but I would really love to have one for her.

What I am hoping you might be able to help me with is this:  If anyone is able to do 2 pages that have the same general theme (so I can use them as a spread) on 12 x 12 paper and get them to me so that I can put her pictures in, I would be SO thankful.  I have my pregnancy pics, baby shower pics, her birthday pics, and pics from her funeral that I want to put in it.  I need a lot of pages.  If 2 pages is too much, I'll gladly take one and make it work.  I know I probably sound pathetic here, but I'm exhausted, been pregnant for the better part of 2 years, I'm homeschooling and trying to get ready for our newest addition (including lots of doctor's appt's!) while still doing stuff for Rachel - I need help!! 

If you are able to help with this, you can mail it to Rachel's PO BOX

Thank you!


  1. I will see what I can do. But in the mean time have you ever ordered a photo book from Shutterfly? I get those all the time. And they do a lot of 50% off days. But I do that when my pictures get the best of me. Plus its a book!

  2. I would love to help you! Two pages will be coming your way.

  3. I am not a scrapbook person either, but my sister is so I'll try to talk to her and have her help me get together a little something. She's great at it. I'm sure you're book will be beautiful as is any/everything pertaining to sweet Rachel.

  4. I'ld love to! What brand scrapbook (or pages) are you using? I want to make sure they fit.


  5. I'm using what came with the book I got, they are nothing specific - just 12 x 12

  6. Scrapbooking is a lot of work! I made Carleigh 2 scrapbooks ant it took many, many hours and even then I left pictures out so I made a book w/ Hertiagemakers w/ the left out pics.

    Hoping you can finish her book soon!

  7. shutterfly is the way to go!

    But even better than that - try You can turn your blog into a book. It's a great way to record a year plus you get to go back and read all that you wrote while it was happening. I like that better than having to go back and remember what was happening for each picture.


We so appreciate your words of encouragement!
