Baby Boy - Mini Album (part 1)

Hello Delightful friends and family,
I completed not one but two mini albums for my niece for her baby shower and wanted to share them with you!  I've taken a lot of pictures so I've decided to divide it up so it's not so overwhelming for me!  Here is the front cover and the first 4 pages.

I'm only going to add a little bit of information to each picture, something I've done that may have added to the design.  For instance the front cover: the chipboard alpha stickers I've coated with Glossy Accents and I've customized the tabs on each page by covering with paper, chipboard, ribbon or painted.  Other than that, this front cover was pretty simple, the paper is DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy (paper pack, it's used throughout the albums) and I've cut it down to 8x8.  The picture will enlarge if you click on it. You never know what small detail may inspire you!

The first inside layout pages (1 and 2):
Sun, banner, tag, onesie and scallop border are Dies from Taylored Expressions, the words (on pg 1) were printed on vellum and cut out.  The words "Baby and It's a Boy!! were stamped with Lawn Fawn Alpha Stamps.  Pg 2 the words are stamps from Taylored Expressions.

 Page 3 and 4
Fishtail Banner Dies (My Favorite Things), Frame (Spellbinders); scallop circle (EK Success punch).
Words are computer generated, the font "Cutie Patootie"

I love this layout!  The hearts are a Mover and Shapers Die from Sizzix (Tim Holtz line); the words are a stamp from My Favorite Things.  The faux stitching was made by a Faber Castell Pen. The scallop diamond border punch is EK Success.  Ribbon and buttons (my stash)

Well, that's it from me for today.  I'll try and get some more posted within a couple of days.  I'm heading to a Beth Moore Living Proof event in Stockton, CA with a friend on Friday so a lot is going on before I can head out of town so I'm not going to make any promises  :-)

Thanks for visiting!!

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.  Psalms 27:14
