Darling baby girl...





















Happy Wednesday my friends!  Cherry here to share a sweet baby album made for RRR.  Every time I do a mini album I always wonder why I don't do more of them because I enjoy doing them so much!  They do take longer than some altered projects or cards but I always feel such a sense of accomplishment when done.  I started with a nice sturdy chipboard base that I painted cream and distressed.  I than picked my papers and alternated them every other page mixing and matching.  I stuck to around 4-5 patterns and repeated them for continuity.   I started by embellishing the front page with my goodies.  I added sweet details like the little stars, buttons, and mini diecuts for interest.  The inside I heavily embellished each page to the right keeping my baby theme.  The left side pages I added vellum envelopes to tuck memories and lockets of baby's hair.  Or any keepsake Mama might want to tuck away.  There is also room for pictures of the wee one. I added Carolina white crochet lace at the bottom of each page.  Once done I assembled my pages together and it was ready for the cherry on the top!  All the sassy ribbons that I tied onto the rings.  This is the fun part I think.  I love tying on the ribbons and adding little trinkets and sentiments in between. I added pink safety pins with stacked buttons, baby blocks,  little hearts,  and a flash card. I used pink grosgrain in circus dots,  pink chevron grosgrain, satin with scalloped edge in pink, and Diamond satin in pearl pink.  This is a great way to use up shorter snippets of ribbons.  Well that is about it.  Except I had to share my buddy Bailey wearing my work.  He tries to help out ...more like steal my goodies. How can I say no to a face like that though!    Hope you enjoy!  Have a wonderful day and rest of your week.   hugs, cherry
