Welcome Baby Colton!!!

After 2 1/2 years, I finally got my baby shower pictures into an album. Man!, when people told me I was going to busy with my second child, they weren't kidding. I never get a chance to scrap anymore. I do it all on my scrapbook weekends away twice a year.
I started making this album awhile back and it sat on my desk, unbound with the pages waiting to be filled and for me to figure out what pics would go in it. First it was going to be about my Mom then it was going to be of a girls trip to the beach but I didn't have enough pics for that. Finally after going through my photos and realizing I had way too many pics of my shower for just one scrapbook page, I decided they were the perfect pics for my mini album.
I used the mini file from the Heidi Swapp Chipboard Memory Files and covered it with one of the Mini Memory Files. I used her Sugar Chic line of paper for the pages as well so some other paper I had in my stash that went very well. I so love Heidi Swapp's products and used many of her embellishments as well.

Here I used the American Crafts DIY Thickers and sprayed them with the Mustard Colorshines. So pretty!!

Here's a close up of the fold out heart. Such a fun touch.


After I was done with all the pages, I used my Cinch and bound it all together. I love that machine!! Plan to do more fun stuff with it in the future.
Thanx for visiting me today and MAKE PRETTY STUFF!!!
