So Many Gifts!
My very good friend and neighbor is having a boy in early April. Her daughter and mine are 6 months apart and the best of friends. Our families have become very close and it's a pleasure and joy to know them. I've made her this baby journal - keeping somewhat 'boyish' tones while making it beautiful and a tiny bit frilly at the same time. I also tried to incorporate a vintage feel with the background paper (under the flower lace paper) and the vintage looking teddy bear die cut.
I've tabbed sections of the notebook so that she can make lists of things she needs before the baby arrives, keep track of sleep and eat habits once he is here, etc.
It's a little bigger than 5x7 but I think it's portable enough to fit into a diaper bag. I'm going to make a matching pen to accompany it.
