Baby Girl

Hello, here is a little word book I made for my DD2 to give to her SIL on the birth of their 1st baby which is due this week.  Call me old fashioned but I think I'd rather have it the traditional way in that you dont know the sex of the baby until delivery!
I used my FunkyHand CD and chose all of the paper designs for each letter.  I spent a merry old time with my QK and all of my baby themed dies and they were all needed to help cover all of the sides!

The gorgeous flower brads hold it all together and they were in the lovely candy I won from Fiona last year as this has been the first opportunity to put them to good use!
I had fun making a little box for this, it took 3 attempts to get a good fit for a lid and then I happened upon how to best do it for the next time - that's assuming I will remember it though!

Oh I feel very indulged after this weekend, it was so good having my beautiful girls come to stay overnight on Saturday.  We collected a wedding dress, had a little pampering session and then a lovely trip to the New Forest to mooch around a possible wedding venue followed by a really lovely lunch in a forest pub.  Best of all was of course the super sunshine!  Im sure the sun shone for all Mums yesterday in one way or another and I hope you all had wonderful days!
