This week I have mostly been making....

.... well finishing because I started it ages ago..... a baby book for my friend and her beautiful new arrival.

I have a confession.
I like to make scrapbooks.
But don't put my pictures in them for fear of 'ruining' them because my life doesn't really seem 'worthy' of scrapbooking it at the minute.
I used to be like this with stickers when I was growing up. Just looking at them rather than sticking them anywhere.
My current drawer full of stickers would probably tell you that I am still a bit like that.
I know I'm a loser.

Anyway, as I said, I made this for my friend and have left space for her to put all the pictures she wants to in it and write about different things baby Mabel (I know, old school name isn't it) has done/how she develops etc.

Shall I just show you it?
If you thought 'no', you should probably close your eyes right about.......

NOW :)

 The front cover with a space for a picture of baby :)

 In the 'crib' the card opens up to put all Mabel's birth stats like date of birth, weight etc.
 This opens out if you pull the elephant.
 Mini frames for mini pictures.

 These hands lift up so you can put a picture underneath.
This is a mini envelope I made and put a little 'Happy Birthday' card in it for her 1st birthday.
And this present opens up, with the bow pulling up to reveal another tag :)

This is just a selection of pages; I didn't want to bore you too much. Each page is also a pocket that has a tag for more pictures/writing because I made envelopes out of card and then covered them with pretty paper and begrudgingly.... stickers :) I then bound it with my bind-it-all and bob's your uncle. I didn't want to make it all pink and girly girly because my friend isn't really too 'girly girly'. Plus I loved these papers.

You can open your eyes again now :P
