Baby Boy Photo Album

I made this for Mum to give as a baby gift but she didn't like the lower case 'd'!  I don't have capital letters for this set of Sizzix dies so I cut a capital 'D' from the Cuttlebug 'Groovy Chick' dies and put it on instead.  (I didn't have time to take a photo - but I think I prefer it with the lower case anyway ;)

I made the chipboard buttons by cutting just the circle of the question mark on this Sizzix die.  Then punched two 1/8" holes in it with the cropadile and tied some embroidery thread through it.

The elephant is another Sizzix die, cut from chipboard and paper pieced.  His eye is a white pearl, coloured with a black copic marker.  I added green thread behind his trunk to look like water spraying.......but it looks more like grass. lol

The children are going to Bible Club this week so I will have 3 whole hours to myself every morning!  Lots of craft time and I hope to make the most of it and get some mini books finished :)

Thanks for stopping by today.
