Baby Book for Balmonte Baby

Wow! Say that title 5x in a row! I have been putting my Bind-It-All to good use lately. Here's another mini-album I made for Chris and Lori and their new family of three:) I guess it's not quite so mini as it was a 6x12 album. It was great to do it this way because all I needed to do with each 12x12 was cut it in half! Don't you just love Penny Lane from My Mind's Eye? What great color combinations! I can't wait to see the finished album when they add family photos.

Yes, I know. Lots of pictures and long posts. But my blog is a place for me to look back at all I
have done, so I like to record it all. Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you are keeping it cozy!
The top has two squares stand for Chris and Lori. Then I added three squares to the next page to show they are now a family of three! I made the flowers using Cuttlebug.

I really loved adding the button badges to the photo insert pages. Neat way to separate them.
I left a lot of space for journaling. Lori is one of THE MOST creative people I know. I'm sure she will add nice touches and make this album all their own. You think this book is good? She will make it great!

I love how acrylic paints and sponge stamps make letters pop!

A true labor of love! One of my favorite albums!
