New Baby Book


I started this a couple of months ago but I couldn't finish it for some crazy reason... It's intentions were to go to my mom's co-worker who was expecting, but I just could not finish it. So, I put it away for awhile and last night got it back out and poof! it's done! Luckily I had the gypsy file saved so there was no worry about sizing and pieces I had thought about using.

Here are the first two pages, where a little note for the mom/baby would go...

Next pages... the outfits are kind of hard to see, but I inked the edges so in real life it doesn't hurt your eyes like it does on here!

And then... some of the frames have little pearls on the corners, and you can't really see the cute green stork above the frame on the second page.

I just loved the presents and outfit on this page... there is a pearl on the flower of the shirt, and the rattle has pearls, too. One of the packages has stickles on the "ribbon" to make it sparkle!

Here is the matching page...

Here is a closeup of the pearls that you can't see on the other pictures... not that you can really see it on here, either.

More details that don't clash in real life...

And lastly, here is the back. I ordered a personalized stamp in the mail a few days ago to "brand" my work, but it hasn't come yet. Until then I'll continue my tradition of just writing my name. This little onesie says "Made with 100% LO<3VE" :-)

I think it's b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l and it will probably make a good gift one day.

Umm... is this for sale? I have a co-worker who's about to pop a baby out any day now. =)

Ummm yeah... how much do you want to buy it for? I thought about listing it on Etsy for $10, but there is no way I'd think about charging you that much! How about... free? Maybe if I get enough of my 'work' out there then people actually will start to be interested in buying it. Who knows! I can't wait to get my name-stamp in the mail, though. Hopefully it will be flippin' awesome and look totally professional!
