Baby Boy - Mini album, (part 2)

Hello Delightful friends and family!
We are having a beautiful sunshiny day here in Blue Lake!  I have my two little granddaughters today and they have been helping me water the flowers in the yard and now we are having some quiet time in the house before we walk Mimi (auntie's) golden retriever Ruby and then pick up Jake from school.  It's a great day to spend outside!  We've enjoyed it :-)
Baby album continued:

Pages 5 and 6
I've printed on vellum all the words on both pages (font: Cutie Patootie);  Two punches: Photo Corners (Marvy Uchida) and Scallop diamond border punch (EK Success)

Close up of page 5

 Page 6: Flag banner Punch (EK Success) not sure of the name of the "ric rac border on the right edge but also EK Success.  For a bit of interest I used a Polka DotEmbossing folder on the paper behind the "picture space"  and I'm still using the DCWV Nana's Nursery paper for baby boy.

Page 7 and 8
The ivy is a stamp (from stash) that I've stamped using paint (Distress Ink - Mowed Lawn) and the blue-green background is customized using Dylusions ink Spray.

The little frog and butterfly are 3-D stickers. I've used a little bit of white ink to embellish (Pitt Artist Pen from Faber Castell)

Page 9 & 10 (inside back cover)  "Be is for Baby (sticker) and I've used a Spellbinder label die distressed with ink (Ranger Distress Ink Broken China) and one side is attached with velcro.

 2 spots for photos and a panel to journal.  Inside cover has that gorgeous colored paper (I used Dylusions - Vibrant Turquoise, Dirty Martini and White linen ink spray to create it on watercolor paper and I've use the lattice stencil from Heidi Swapp).  The green was made by a large envelope, sealed, folded over and trimmed to create two pockets.  One pocket was designed to hold the vellum envelopes for keepsakes and the other for a tag with a Scripture on it.  As you can see I took the pics before it was completed.

Back cover:  I used the same Dylusions ink spray for the back of the album, but first I gesso'd the back cover then sprayed with ink the damp paper, then blotted it with a paper towel to create that interesting design.  I LOVE those colors together.  The green and gold ribbon is from a Key Ingredient Kit from Taylored Expressions.

Well, that's it for me, thanks for visiting!
I still have another mini album to share but before I do I need to hunt down the link for the steps to making the base.  I  think I may have it on my Pinterest board but I will double check.

I will be sharing part 2 at Word Art Wednesday (Anything Goes)

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.  Hebrews 11:6
