Make a Page Monday

Well, I've been slacking once again with my Make a Page Monday posts the last few weeks. Things were just super busy around here with Dean's preschool graduation and my MIL's 2-week visit. But I did get several layouts completed this week, so I feel awesome about that!! I'm going to share a few of them with you today. If you're not familiar, Make a Page Monday is a weekly blog post where I share a handful of layouts with you from the Tribute Album I've been working on about my Dad's Life (he passed away in November from Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease at the age of 59) and maybe a layout here and there from Dean's baby / toddler book I'm trying to catch up on. None of these will be in any particular order. And if you're interested in the details you can probably click on the layout and see it slightly larger. So here goes...(credits below each layout).

I didn't get anything new done on my Dad's Tribute album, but I got 5 new layouts done for Dean's album, so I'm just going to share those with you today and save some of my Dad's layouts from my stash for future posts (I have a feeling I'll be working on his book quite a bit in the next few weeks as I'm feeling a bit nostalgic with Father's Day and what would be my parent's 39th Anniversary coming up).

It was the week of bath layouts. First up is this simple but adorable layout using photos from Dean's first bath back on December 11, 2006:

And another bath layout, this time the photos are from when Dean was almost 3 months old - late February 2007:

And my favorite of the bunch - just some pics of baby Dean resting peacefully when he was about 3 weeks old:

One of Dean's many, many trips to the beach as a baby - but his first time dipping his toes into the Pacific Ocean! (And I am in LOVE with this template!)
