Mini Album (first double page)

Well I've finally done some crafting this summer holidays. I'm planning on doing a 12 x 12 scrapbook for my best friends 40th birthday. But because I've had to ask for loads of photos she knows what's coming. So as a surprise I'm going to add to the present by adding 3 mini albums which will be just on each of her 3 children. Although Emma is the youngest I've started on her album first. It doesn't look as if I've added much details to the pages, but where they are small anything else I added made it too much. Both these photo were taken the day she was born, so I added all the details. Then added the Sunday's child bit, then die cut flower to tie the pages together. On page 2 was a lot of info so just added small teddy and princess crown. As Emma is a real princess. On a roll now and hoping to do another couple of pages by the end of the week.
Well today is a funny old day, I'm feeling terrible, it's results day for A-levels. My Nicki is getting ready for collage as I type. I really don't mind if she doesn't pass. But Nicki is hoping to go to Uni. She's had the interviews and done the audition etc etc, and has been accepted on that, but of course will need the point to get in. So it's fingers crossed and keep your mouth shut Mum. I made the mistake of saying it didn't matter if she didn't get what she wanted she could resit and apply next year. OOOOO I thought or was trying to say I was proud without the results. She's worked hard and that's all I've ever asked. And seeing that neither me or her Dad did A-levels we're chuffed already. But it means the world to her, so I have the biggest worry belly on. I'll hopefully put another post on later saying what's happened. We might have to wait a few days to hear from her Uni, if it's down to a few little points.
Hope you all have good days and that it doesn't rain too much. Hugs for now oxo's Vicki

Oh Vicki you must be biting your fingernails right now!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for Nicki but I'm pretty sure she will have done just fine.
These LO's out of Emma are just gorgeous and if you don't mind I might use your ideas for some of Belles baby pictures?
