Baby's 1st Year Board Book

As promised... This is the board book I made for the sis-in-law of a fellow church member. It was kind of a last minute idea and I just pulled apart one of my kids' old board books. (My preferred method of preparing previously loved board books.)

There is a two-page spread for the general pregnancy, two-page spread for the birth, and then one page for each month of the first year.

I used Daisy D's patterned papers and WorldWin cardstock. Most of the ribbons and rick rack are May Arts and many of the embellishments are from Making Memories. I don't remember who did the rub-ons...and I'm too lazy to look it up right now. :0)

My sketches for page layout were inspired by the QVC/CK album layouts.

Now that little Hayden is a year old I'm very curious as to what his mom did with the album. I recommended black and white photos but I've no idea what she did.

It was great fun to make and I immediatedly pulled the very same papers, embellishments and rub-ons to make another one!
