Mini Album completed ...

Well as much as I can without any photos :-)
.
This pic shows off the pattern on the overlay better

But this is more the true colours of the album - kind of distracting seeing all the things on the following page though sorry.
Back of cover ... on hind sight I wish I had used vintage photo distress ink on the back of the pattern paper I pleated then it wouldn't look so stark white! Oh well live and learn! :-)
A little pocket with a tag and ...
I plan to journal on the tag date, time, weight etc. details of the baby (that's why the clock stamp!) :-)
The little paper clip holding the tag in place on the right page we embossed with distress embossing powder. They came up looking very cool.





And back cover.
I haven't added too many rub-ons yet as I'll wait and see what colour to use :-) Then I can make it more girly or boyish depending on what "pops out"!! hehehee

That looks fabulous - you rock that shabby chic look! The pic of M sleeping yesterday is so cute - ahhh, butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Almost forgotten about the dreaded Swine Flu - if you remember both Mitch and Glen had it last year, but Ashlee and I never caught it, despite it's supposed extreme contagiousness - hope everyone stays well your end though - it's the last thing you need this close to baby arriving!
