A Tale: Baby E's First Birthday Photo
Your child's first birthday is a momentous occasion. You're still changing diapers, but the memory of the pain of child birth has finally left the building. Ha! Only kidding. Capture the moment forever with a project like this. I wanted to keep it simple because if you do have a one year old in tow you don't have much time for crafting! Just look at that face. Just makes you smile.
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
