Baby Shower Gift - Mini Album

Ok, I did not work on the Disney Cruise album this weekend as I had planned, but I did craft! I made a mini album for a baby shower gift. I still need to make the card/ gift card holder, but the mini is done! I used the new Everyday Moments collection from Teresa Collins. I love this collection! The dark blue CS is from Stampin UP , and light blue is from PTI. The mini album design is from Laura at On the Paper Trail. It is her Beaded Matchbook Mini. I made a small change to the length of the pages, but other than that I followed her tutorial!
I matted the outside of the pockets so that a 3.5 x 5 photo can be placed there with a .25" mat all the way around. The tags inside the pockets will hold a 4x6 with just a teeny little border around it on 3 sides and still leaving the patterned paper edge on the right that sticks out from the pockets.
I love the charms hanging from the ribbon on the cover. The silver one I have had in my stash for a few years, it actually came on a gift from Hallmark and says "Children are the greatest gift of all". The other charm is a clear acrylic tag from Tim Holtz that I stamped the baby's name on in Staz-On using a PTI aplha set.
I am linking up to Scrap Scene's WIP Monday post!

Very cute album! My sister just called and told me she found out she is having a boy, and a cute album like this would be fun to make for her.

I'm here from WIP Monday!

Oh wow! What an album! I too love those dingle danglies on the front cover. Such a pretty touch. Wonderful work!
