birthday books

For Courtney's 30th, I made her a little memory/autograph book while we were up in Big Bear. She rented a huge house that slept 24 people and we had a great time with family and friends. It was truly memorable and she was happy to have a place where people could write her a little note and she could look at it whenever she wanted. I love this yearbook-sort-of idea and hope to do more of these.
For my 30th birthday, my friend Kristin made me an amazing scrapbook (even though she is not at all a scrapbooker and doesn't think she is creative in that cut and paste way). It is one of the best presents I have ever gotten in my life. And although not all pages are appropriate for all ages, she truly took the time to create something that I will cherish forever. I laughed until I cried when I first saw it and will continue to do that each time I look at it.
