I came through!!

Over a year ago my sis asked me to make a baby book for a relative of her's who was having a baby shower. I said sure and had went out and bought all the stuff with good intentions of making it. Did I? You guessed it - NO.

She didn't give me a lot of grief about it thankfully, but then she asked me to create a book for the baby who is now turning one. I said yes even though I had a bajillion things going on in the past week and a half. I was determined to get this thing done. I told her it wouldn't be a huge mini book, but just a few pages. It came down to Thursday and I took the whole day, on and off, to throw one together. I couldn't let her down I used the cute new cupcake chipboard album from Maya Road and took some inspiration from Katie Watson's awesome book!! How fitting they were both for one year old's. I used the beautiful Heather Bailey papers from the kit I won on the Work In Progress blog.

Anywho, I called my sister yesterday morning and told her I had a little something for her. She said, "You finished the book?! I didn't think you would." Ha, I proved her So here is my fastest mini book ever. I must say it's really hard for me to put together a book with no pictures. The pictures always give me inspiration. I just used my imaginationExcuse the bad pictures. I had to take them yesterday morning with a very cloudy/rainy overcast before giving the book away.

Hope her parents enjoy their little homemade gift
