Because babies require a lot of time, this is bound tohappen if you dont make some time each day or week to work on thescrapbook. Regularly working on the scrapbook also means you will be able tonote details before you forget.Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.comGraphics by Trina at http://www.digiscrapkits.com
