In our church, if we choose to, we get baptized at the age of eight. Last weekend, that is what my eight year old chose to do. I’m so proud of him for his choice. To try to help him remember this special day, I made this mini album, using chipboard. I used the new Cricut Craft Room program to cut all the words. After having a Cricut for almost four years, it was SO fun to be able to weld words together!For the inside cover, I put the invitation (that I made in Photoshop Elements) and then a picture of my son with his dad.Most of the following pages look something like this. I left spaces for pictures from that day (which, as you can see, I’ve printed and put in the book) and also left space for those who attend to write a note for Justin. I’m not sharing those pages because of the personal notes on them. 🙂When I got to the end, I had some of the words left over that I had cut out, so I thought why not stick them on the back.I am SO glad that I did this for my son and I hope that he will treasure it for a long, LONG time.
What a great way to keep some special memories. I’m glad you’ve been able to make your cricut more helpful. 🙂

I’ve bought chipboard at craft stores, or paper supply/shipping type stores. You can also use cereal boxes. They work great for stuff like this. 🙂
