Beautiful baby girl


I am not much of a scrapbooker...but I did make this little photo holder for my niece Melissa. I think it turned out super cute! I printed the photos that she E-mailed me in Black & white on water color paper & then added a bit of color with my SU chalks. Melissa actually took the cute photos herself.













I have made similar photo projects using flip-flops instead of the little baby shoes. This is the third one of the little baby ones I have made.





I also embellished these little onesies with iron-on transfers that I printed off my computer using regular old clip art. If I remember correctly you can never have enough of these :)


And last but not least I decorated this little box for baby Evie to put everything in along with a gift card to target for diapers!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!! we are finally a little cooler here today!!! Woot Woot!! only in the 80's. thanks for stopping by!!!

What a great idea! I haven't done photo albums, but this sure makes me want to. The onesies are just too cute. A matching box to store everything is the perfect finishing touch. Great job!

That is a lovely project, Gwen! How nice to celebrate your niece. Just a little note about MFT: Their sets can be found at: http://www.mftstamps.com/ and the Rosemary one is under MFT presents. The design is by Annie LaPoint. BTYS!

Congrats on your new niece! Melissa is a great name LOL (That's my name heehee) This whole ensemble is astoundingly precious. I love all of it madly... The accordion fold photo-holder with the pearls and everything!! You look like a scrapbooker to me!... And those onsies with clip art. I am stealing that trick LOL. I have iron ons but it's be great to try printing on sticky back fabric for cards... The box! Leaves me breathless. SOoooooh SWEET!!!
