Made by Manda: Birthday Message Books

I think this 'Made by Manda' series, titled by my boyfriend by the way, will be a reoccurring Thursday tradition. If I have enough crafts to share that is!

I have made quite a few 'message books' over the years. It is something I enjoy doing, and I love it when the client is pleased with the outcome. Here are a few images from my own 21st book, which was toybox themed, enjoy!

Made by Manda: Scrapbooks

Here are some pages form the "Year in the Life" style smashbook I did. I used the red doodle smash which I purchased in December 2011. Smashing is a really fun way to let out your inner craft, I recommend it with anyone who does not like throwing out junk :)

My First Time Tag

1. My First Word: 
No. I was a pretty cool baby, rebellious and all that. 

2. My First Teddy: 
It was a massive Teddy Called Pinky. It was pink. Child Genius. 

3. My First Friend: 
I think it was probably Fiona, as our mums and brother were already besties it was fate that we would be too. 

4. My First Memory: 
I think it is of me falling out of the tree in my front yard. Traumatic clearly, although I didn't injure myself AT ALL. No broken bones, no fractures, just a one single bruise. 

5. My First School Crush: 
I won't name him but I think it was the new boy when I was about 8 or something. He was blonde and caught a bug once and once he showed me I was smitten. 

6. My First Kiss:
I seriously have no idea. I THINK maybe just maybe it was with my first bf but I cant remember.
