It's taken me two days to complete this little Baby Book for an upcoming
baby shower, but it's finally done.  I haven't made a mini book for a while and it
really is one of my favourite projects to produce.

The pages started out as kraft-coloured chipboard and were then covered with DP.  Next I used my Cinch to coil bind the book together.  I had quite a time attempting to weld the word "BABY" and "ELEANOR", using my Gypsy but I finally succeeded and am
pleased with the results.

I have left several spots for the new Mom to put some photos and have added several
journaling tags, tucked into pockets, for her to write some notes.

And on the last page, I have included a poem called "Mother's Heart", which when untied, folds down to reveal the poem.

I hope Eleanor's mom enjoys the book.  And as much work as it was, it certainly felt good to be back crafting again.

Thanks for stopping by.

So great to see you creating again. This book is awesome. Love all the special detail you've put into it. I've been thinking a lot about you and I've been working on something for you that should have been done by now, but as you know, life has gotten in the way. But it should be done soon, so watch your mail (well, not for awhile knowing how long Canadian mail takes! LOL) Best, Curt
