Celebrating the Twins' 2nd Birthday

In January 2011, when my son and his family moved to Japan, I never in my wildest dreams, think we would be celebrating the twins' second birthday here in the US! They arrived February 15 and their birthday is February 18. We actually had 2 celebrations for them! The first celebration was with my son and his family and my daughter and her family. The second celebration was with the rest of the family!

It was fun to make a scrapbook of the two celebrations.

I made the book 8 x 8 in size - easy for the little ones to handle if they want to look at the photos.

The paper is a stack by Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's brand) called Birthday Extravaganza. I liked it because its colors are neither boy or girl specific.

I used my Cricut to cut titles and embellishments and tags. Phrases is a great cartridge for titles!

Juli seemed to enjoy the cake, if the frosting on her face is any indication!

Party #2. I made a couple pages with pockets and tags in them. Since the twins will be bilingual, I told my son that he and his wife could write messages to the twins on the tags - in English and in Japanese for them to read when they are older.
The happy family....so glad they are back!!!

It seems like forever that I was not making scrapbooks, and this year, I've done quite a bit and I can't wait to share my creations with you! Hope you enjoyed today's feature and you stop by again soon!

Koala-t hugs,
