Baby Boy Photo Album

Hi.

Do you remember a few weeks back when Nancy and I had our craft day but my creation was a secret?

Now I can tell.

I made a photo album for my bff Jinju’s baby boy.  She’s due next week, YIPPEEEE!!

I gave her the book last week when we had dinner together.  I was SO SO happy to show her!

I bought a kit that included the album, baby boy-themed paper, some stickers, and embellishments.  I picked up some additional stickers, embellishments, and stamps.

I started with the first page….then hopped from one to the next, matching stamps and stickers to paper.

Oh, and we drank some vino.  Gets the creative juices a-flowin’.  😉

Here, my stack(s) of finished pages:

When I finished all of the pages, it was time to assemble the book.  I wanted to coordinate each “spread” so the pages complimented each other.  Some thought was in order!

Here’s what I came up with….

Introducing Baby!

It's a boy page

Then I realized it would be easier (and better displayed) to show each page on its own.

This was such a fun and special project.  I was beyond thrilled to make it for her baby and like a kid in a candy store to see her open it.

I can’t wait to meet this baby of yours, my bff Jinju!
