Baby's, Buttons, and Bows....


Hello my sweet friend.
How are all of you doing on this fine day?

I am doing wonderful..  Like I said on my last post I have been busy working
on a fun project.  And I will show you just a little piece of it today..

I am hosting this week over at City Crafter Challenge blog so that is how this
whole project got started.  The Theme is Babies, Buttons and Bows..
Can you tell I am just a little excited about becoming a Grandma..

So here it is...  This is going to be the Cover of a Mini Album
I am working on for sweet little Myles..
 



This book has 18 pages and I am only half way through..
That is a Martha Stewart doilie I am using along with a glitter chipboard frame
I got awhile ago..  The chip board letters I got from Kirsty!  Thanks my sweet friend..
The DP I am using is from Joann's open stock..  I just love it..



I pulled out my glitter and my yummy seam binding..



And some sweet little blue buttons..



So I will be back soon Hopefully to show you the rest of this
Little Mini Album I am making..

To play along with us this week over at CCCB all your have
to do is create a Baby project with buttons and bows on it..
To get the rest of the detail or just to check out what the others
Ladies have created you can hope on over to CCCB!

A great prize is up for grabs at the Pixie Dust Paperie..

Linda, this is a beautiful album cover! Very smart of you to get this done now. Once the baby comes, you will be busy smiling and holding him! then when he is ready to walk you will be there too. There won't be much time to make albums! time passes fast, my friend, so enjoy each and every moment being a grandmom. Love your challenge photo and challenge.
