On My Craft Table Now

     This is the project I'm currently working on: a baby themed mini album. My cousin is having her first grand baby and I thought I'd send this to her daughter, my second cousin.
     The cover is from an old book I picked up recently at a thrift store (see the post here). The interior pages are a variety of things like scrapbook paper, a large playing card, a Bingo card, and sheet music.  It has lots of envelopes to store random mementos. I love creating albums where every page is a different and unique element. Here's a look at a few of the pages:
The green title block says "N is for new" (from a 7 Gypsies sticker sheet) then I added the "Baby" with old Scrabble tiles. The center of the flower is a tiny bottle!

This is the into page. It has the block at the top where the baby info can be filled in.

This piece of sheet music is folded up from the bottom to make a  small pocket.

This is the final page. I added this manila envelope so there would be lots of room to add extra photos or whatever.
I always like to have lots of little tabs and tickets hanging off the edges so they peek out beyond the cover.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
