I had been participating quite a bit here up until a couple of months ago.

I took on quite a project that kept me pretty busy.

One of my good friends is expecting her first, a little boy, and I got a fun idea: Make her a baby book for the first year of her little boys life.

Here is the result:

(missing the other page of this, didn't upload, will add later!)







(Missing another page, add later)








Back page:


I was very surprised at the reaction at the baby shower when she opened it. There were a ton of "oohs and ahhs" and everyone wanted to see it, and gave me some really nice complements! It felt good to know that people thought it was a good idea!

That was a great baby present!! It turned out wonderful!! I really really like the June page! I love how you wove the ribbon in and out of JUNE and the "boys and their toys" embellishment! Did you make the paper clips on the march page? I really like them. Are the stars on the 1 year layout all 3-d or does the paper just make them look that way? That would be a lot of 3-d stars and would take a lot of patience!! There are a couple layouts that I think I may have to scraplift!! I can definitely see myself using the January one in Josh's book!

Thanks

The June page was one of my favorites. I really need to get the other half of it posted ASAP. The daddy is a competitive motocross racer, so the other side had a great dirtbike embellishment!

The paperclips from the March page were bought at a local "bargain" store. I think there were 8 in the pack for $2.88

And the stars on the one year page are actually a 3d-looking paper. I don't have enough patience to make something like that myself! haha

And Scraplift to your hearts content! I get a lot of my ideas by looking at others' work here!
