I hope your day is going well.
Today I am happy to report that I have finished my project that I have been working on for the past 2 weeks. My niece's baby shower is this coming Sunday, and I had wanted to get her a special gift. I did not know what. But I knew I wanted to give a special, PERSONAL gift for her baby. After much pondering, and researching on Pinterest and personal blogs, I was suddenly hit with inspiration....hit with a sledgehammer! I was looking through Graphic 45 blog , which led me to one of their designers, Anne. her work is OUTSTANDING! When I saw this project, I knew, I KNEW this was what I wanted to make!
So, I ordered the G45 Mother Goose 8x8 paper pad, 2 of them, along with some other matching embellies .I had already bought the chipboard album at Michael's, had my glue ready, and away I go!
(Then I had a moment--OMG! I never made one like this before--you can count on one hand how many minis I've made----never made a mini album as a gift before--Could I do this??)EEK!
2 weeks later, give or take a few days, I am happy, and relieved, to say that this baby book is finished. I used the majority of the 2 paper pads, along with most of the chipboard embellies. I also added a few other touched from other companies in the mix, but the album is around 95% G45. Holy Guacamole! lol
Without further adieu, I present my gift to my niece. Note: Photo heavy!
