Sneak Peek: Baby Boy Mini Album

Hello Crafty Friends!

Here is a baby album I've been working on for about...  a year!  It's 90% done, I hope to get it done during the week so I can give it to my good friend who had her baby last summer.  I really have a hard time finishing things, mostly because I don't have much free time caring for my toddler 24/7.  I don't have many photos of the album, and I don't want to put a photo of the cover just in case she sees this and well, the cover says his name on it.

So here is just a taste:

Inside of the "precious" pocket,
there is an opportunity for some jouraling.

There is more to come!

What do you think???

Thanks for stopping by! :-)

May Tag 2012: MARIPOSA

Hello Crafty Friends!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
I hope everyone had a chance to do something creative today.
