I am in Eugene playing with the new baby and my daughter just wrestled him away from me to show him off to the neighbor...I am traumatized.... Little Luke and I have been browsing the web together this morning so if my comments say "pretty" or "cute"--- keep in mind they were typed with one finger-no capitals or punctuations! LOL I am having great Gwamma time with Cole, Luke and of course their parents too.
I made this mini album for a baby shower gift. I was so tickled to learn from someone at the shower that these were her nursery colors as well...Do you think I can tell her that "I meant to do that"? I am not sure she would believe me LOL!
The new girl baby on the block has such a pretty name...Josephine Berlynn. The top piece on this album/hanging uses her initials as I didn't know what her "nickname" might be (and Josephine was too long to fit). The initials were cut with my cricut and the cute as a button sentiment was computer generated. The journaling block is an Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday clear stamp. I have several of her journaling stamps and have used them so much! They are just great to have for these small albums.
I spent a whole morning painting this darn Maya Road chipboard album pink...not my favorite thing to do I have since realized...
The great DP is from DCWV...very dramatic and fun, don't you think?
I used my nesties to cut different shapes for the matting and embellished with ribbons, punches, baby "stuff" and a small sizzix die envelope for the Tiny Treasures. I also added lots of pink crystals to "bling" things up a bit.
I added lots of little embellishments in the cellophane gift bag for the new mama to add to the pages once she adds her photo's -- as well as to decorate the back of the pages as this is a double sided album.
I hope you enjoyed this mini. I have another super simple mini in mind...one that I can fit into my purse...a proud Gwamma type brag album. Nothing fancy schmancy like the last two I made...but totally a cute idea I found online. I hope to work on that one next week, so keep on the look out for that one in the next week or two!
(Darned if I could get these photo's to view in my blog the correct way...they show just fine in my compose box...it's always "sumthun'")
