The Most Precious Birthday of All

It's a beautiful day. The birds are singing, the sun is shining (hopefully in your area)
And babies are being born.
 This is a long one, so get cozy...
This month Make it Crafty, has been about birthdays.
If you follow me, you know I've had a few in my home as well.
Then, Zoe introduces Geeky Love New Baby Collection.
Lastly, I find out one of my biggest artist inspirations is having a baby.
Ok, so it doesn't take a hammer to see these stars aligning...
Let me start from the very beginning. A couple months back I won a "Love to Scraps" challenge.  The super cool prize was a mini album mania Cd from Technique Junkie.
I was so excited because I had been wanting to try something completely different. This was perfect
On to April...
The project I picked out to create was called a gift bag album.
I began by coloring all the images from Geeky's Baby collection
Then started creating.....
Cover Page                 Inserts pages slide out from center section


A Place for Baby Prints     The Section pulls apart for easy usage


  Center Clasp                                  All of Baby Details      

                                      Daddy's Page

      Mommy's Page              Pull out Pages with Felt Flower Grips

Haircut Clippings and First Tooth Lost         Velcro Secured pouch

   Photo ops and Formula           
Slept All Night and other Memorable Firsts     Pull Out Pages


Night Night Baby....
   All the images were colored with Copics.
Papers are from paper studio as are most stickers, rhinestones and other embellishments.
Other products used come from EK Success and others from stash.
Fiskars, spellbinder and paper studio punches were also included
