Baby Keepsake Books

Hi All,
Firstly, I would like to welcome my new followers.
Thank you for taking the time to join me and
I hope you like what you see here!
 
I must also thank all of you, for you lovely messages,
regarding our house move.
It is quite exciting, as we will be starting the next chapter of our lives.
 
I wasn't very excited this morning! I spent a few hours, completing
pages of questions,
for both the purchase and the sale of the properties. :-(
I always worry that I have made a mistake somewhere!!
 
I made a couple of these 8" x 8" baby books,
using Lili of the Valley Baby stamps
and colouring with Distress Inks.
 
I sold the girl one last Saturday! 
 
 
I decorated 4 of the pages, just so the recipient can see what they can do.
They can just add pictures if they want.
Better than just having photos on their phones or computers!!





                             
 
 
This is the boy book.
Again, 4 internal pages decorated.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                          
                          


                          
 
 
 
I will make another girl one before next market in August.
This market is one that I really enjoy and will miss lots of the stallholders
and the lady that runs the market.
It will be the last market here, as I will have to pack up all my stuff!
 
I am not looking forward to that as I have so much.
I have made a good start with packing of things that I don't need to use.
Best dinner services etc.
We have also done the shed and garage. Also a few trips to the local tip!
There will probably be a few more too!
 
Thanks for stopping by and you know that I always love to read
your lovely messages.
Big hugs,
Carolxx

Your little baby books are superb Carol and a great idea leaving some for the recipients to fill in. The little bows and flowers are so gorgeous and love this gorgeous image.
I can understand about filling in forms and stuff..I have to go on a course next week and do a numerical and literacy test...don't know what that has to do with cleaning toilets etc...but gotta do it.

luv CHRISSYxx

These are fabulous Carol, no wonder they sell well. Moving house is all about paperwork, but well worth it!! xx

These are great Carol, what a lovely idea. I had similar books when my two were babies and I still enjoy looking at them - I agree it's just not the same having pictures on a computer screen.
