Welcome Little One!

At last I've remembered to blog this! The first photo of this book should have been as it was finished but Mr Blogger won't put the photo the right way, so this first one will just have to do as it is!

Anyway, I made this first year book for a little boy, who, secretly, I am pleased he arrived late as I did leave it a little to the last minute. Ok. So I hadn't even started it by the due date. And its not like I didn't have enough warning!

All the papers throughout are from V Funky. The giraffe image is from Lost In Paper Scraps which I have coloured with watercolour pencils. All the sentiments are computer generated as I didn't trust my own handwriting!

I've used buttons and bits from my stash as I've gone along. None of the pages were planned out regarding layout - it just happened!

Each page is a different month or event. The 'blank' bits in the middle are for where the photos are to be added at each stage.

So that's it! Congratulations to Alex and I'll be over for a cuddle at some point (Sebastian not you!)
