I walked through the baby aisle today to grab a gift and I was shocked once again at the latest and greatest gadgets that have become available in the past 3 years since Samantha was born. For about 10 seconds I had a fleeting thought in wishland of “I should have another baby”. The thought was very short lived as I realized I just really wanted to have another baby and wedding shower to replace all the worn and well used items that need to be retired in my home.
So imagine my surprise when Nicole sent me one of her fabulous 20 Questions Memory Albums for Samantha for her 3rd birthday! Fantastic – I get to enjoy a latest item without going through childbirth all over again. Hooray!
The album is produced by Blurb and is the perfect size at 7 x 7. If you know Blurb, then you know their quality is stellar.
From the ages of 3 to 18, I will ask Samantha the same 20 questions. We giggled as a family as we listened to Sam answer the questions at the dinner table. The entire time I interviewed Sam, I kept thinking… I so wish I had this for my oldest 3 children. I was right back in wishland.
On the inside cover I included a 6 x 6 picture of all four kids.
The title page has some adorable fonts.

I will treasure this book always.
I have to tell you that this 20 Questions Album and Project Life are all that you need for memory keeping. They are my perfect combination for memory keeping. I still love to make an occasional mini-book but that is more for a creative venture than for record/memory keeping.
So head on over to Nicole’s blog. She has fabulous and inspiring scrapbook pages, projects, and custom stamps. She is also a new design team member for Ormolu. Go here to see Nicole’s post about these albums and the fabulous colors they come in.
But more important than her talents is her heart. Nicole is perhaps one of the greatest gifts that I have received since starting this blogging adventure. I treasure our online friendship and look forward to meeting her one day soon.
Blessings sweet friends – Jenny
This album was a gift from Nicole, but this post and the opinions in this post were 100% completely my own.Tweet
