Baby I Love You Album (II)

I promised to show you progress of my baby album/pregnancy journal.
I haven't added any photos yet, but I did make a few more pages.

This is the first page:

baby mini album first transparency page
You probably can't realize yet that it's actually a small transparency page with a photo mat, but look at the next page:

Enjoy The Journey

baby mini album enjoy the journey page

It says "Enjoy the Journey" and I have been enjoying it so far. I have also learned new things about myself. Since it's the first time in my life I weigh more than 90 pounds I realized that having too many of them does make life a little harder. So I am so glad that my busy life does not allow me to gain weight. Hopefully I wont have too many extra at the end of these 9 months.

The tag is from Crafty Secrets and probably the birds too, but I have had them for a while and I can't remember. However, Crafty secrets is sponsoring this weeks Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #101 "Nostalgia" and I had a great time working with the images they provided the DT with.

I accidentally pulled out the brown cardstock that the tag is mounted on and I really liked the look, so I ended up adding an eyelet and some fibers and made a whole page around it.
Here's a closer look:

Best of Times

The left side is unfinished, but I do love the page on the right. The clock image is from is from a Teresa Collins kit and the text around it says "Best of times". This really is the best time for having a baby in our lives so I had to incorporate the clock.

The clock is mounted on a transparency with a brad and has room for journaling on the back.

That's it for now. Thank you for visiting. I will show you the next pages as I go on with my little album.

Hi Meda !!! How exciting it must be and is so great you're planning to document this huge event on your lives. Most of the time you think you won't forget the details but as time goes by you do forget, so documenting the facts and the way you feel is a great idea. The cover of the album is really beautiful.

Fabulous, Meda! It's beautiful! I have to do my Cuttin' Up Saturdays item today and I'm excited about it. Hopefully it will turn out well on the project like it does in my head! :)
