Minibook for a pregnant friend

A special friend is having a baby and I thought I'd make her a mini book. There is plenty of space for journaling and/or photos, either for during the pregnancy or after.
Beware this is a photo heavy post......
Cover

First page with pocket and space for tags



Second page with fold out accordion booklet for journaling or photos


pocket and tag


More pages with journaling spots, photo spaces and tags



pocket and tags

Clever kind of pocket hotding three tags, two at the side and one on top. Design by Laura Denison of "Following the Paper |Trail"




I used mainly Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden collection, which sadly seems to be out of print. I think it is one of the most beautiful collections out. If anyone reading this knows where to get it still, please let me know! Sadly I ran out someway through putting the mini together so I had to add other bits that matched more or less here and there.

Superfantastic album :) I love those papers too!!! If you didn't find them, try E-bay or just google the name of the stack, and you'll get shops that still carries them :) If you can't find them, please let me know and I'll see if there's a seller here in norway which still has them, and order some for you :) take care,
hugs and smiles,
Linda

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
