Baby Boy's First Year Interactive Album

Hello Everyone!! 


Today I am sharing my son's first year album. He is already 3 now but I never got the time to work on the album. I wanted to incorporate a lot of things in the album and make it complete with all the pictures, etc, so all the planning took a lot of time. I have been collecting the papers, embellishments and other stuff for the album since a long time, so that whenever I make it, I have all the things in place.

It took me almost 2 months to complete this album as I worked on it in bits and pieces. 

I got a box for the album and covered it with a pretty wrapping paper. The album will remain safe and secure inside the box. 

Few facts and figures about the album:
