Baby Album

Here is the baby mini album I made for my mother for her first great grandchild and my first great nephew, Peter! I used a Close To My Heart chipboard mini album, where all of the pages were cut differently, and Graphic 45 "Little Darlings" paper.

I used a lot of stuff on the cover. The roses were hand cut out from scraps of the LIttle Darlings paper, the name was stamped with CTMH Urban Alphabet, the "Prince" was from a Teresa Collins page, the metal name plate is Tim Holtz, and the Little Darlings tag was part of the chipboard set that matches the paper. All pages were inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed Ink.

Again, the bird, "postage stamp", and "Sent from Heaven" were all cut from scraps of the Little Darlings paper. Interestingly enough, I've never done that exclusively for embellishments before, but it was just enough for this paper line!

How cute is Peter with his first ashes on Ash Wednesday? And that bib with the tie is adorable!

The rest of the embellishments were things I had lying around. I scrounged though all of my stashes on this one, mainly because my mother asked me every 10 minutes if it was ready yet? Kind of reminded me of kids in the car "are we there yet"?
