Cute Calendars and Fish Lake

Vacation was sure fun but it's great to be back and scrappin'! Felt so nice to get out of the valley and get dirty for a bit (I know, it's a strange way to relax!) We had such a good time and I'm so grateful to have great parents who love to go camping with us! And of course, there were plenty of pictures that I can't wait to scrap. I'll show you a few later this week.

Speaking of scrapbooking, I have been reading this lovely book I recently bought from Creating Keepsakes called "Month by Month Scrapbooking", by Amanda Probst. She's put together some cute calendar ideas plus some monthly themes page ideas.

I got this book because I really wanted to document my pregnancies and baby books this way. Makes sense since that's how I recorded them! With each child I kept a planner or calendar (you can get some great ones from Close To My Heart on my website at ) and I simply wrote down the milestones on the calendar when they happened. Sometimes I wasn't spot on so I just wrote on one of the days that week. With my third child I was really good about it and these are a few of Garrett's pages I made using Amanda's book as inspiration.

Some great tools to help you "fake" it through the blank spots in your journalling are pregnancy calendars. Baby Center is my favorite and they email you a weekly or daily event based on your due date or conception information. They even have an App for smartphones which I loved with my last pregnancy! And with Baby Center, you can keep receiving updates as your child grows! Super helpful for busy or tired moms!

Have a wonderful summer!
