LilyRose received some birthday cards from other children that were in the same SWI around the same time as she was. We will hopefully exchange birthday and Christmas cards every year so that she has that connection to her very first home. I decided to make a scrapbook so that she could look at the cards and pictures of her Chenzhou sisters and brother. I think it came out pretty good. There's 10 families including LilyRose. I am missing 3 cards and hope to receive them someday soon. Here are the pictures of the book. Let me know what you think about the job I did. Some of the pictures are blurry, sorry about that.

Lisa,

Your scrapbook for Lily Rose is soooo pretty. We are new to the group, but will be sending her a belated card and picture in the near future. We are one of the blank pages! We hope Lily Rose had a wonderful birthday. Your blog is wonderful.

Lisa,
The scrapbook is beautiful. I think I would even call you crafty!!!!! I see that AnnaClaire's card never arrived, so I will get another one in the mail this week. Sorry, I really and truly sent it when I said I did.
