My First Year

The Digital Ink Challenge this week is a recipe:

Two designer papers plus 3 brads / buttons or eyelets

I've been making something for a while (and I hope she doesn't see this just yet!) but this is the front cover - the remainder of the pages are almost finished - once they are I will share it with you.

Anyway, it's part of a first year book for a baby boy who is due any day.

The image is a wonderful freebie download from Dawn Moore - Lost in Paper Scraps and it is such a lovely image that I've used it a number of times. It's been coloured with watercolour pencils. The papers are Funky Hand - V Funky, which I have cornered the edges and then doodled a fine black line around the edges.

The buttons are from my stash and I've threaded some pale blue organza ribbon through the holes. The sentiment is computer generated and I've inked the edges and drawn a fine black line around them too.
I'm really pleased with how the First Year Book is coming along and I've managed to use my Nesties too!
