"Baby, I Love You" Mini Album

Last week I received an email from Court at Court's Crafts asking what was "Meda's little miracle" that the girls were talking about on the Cuttlebug Challenge forum.

So I guess it's time to reveal the big mystery: Meda is 3 1/2 months pregnant, doing very well and hungry all the time.

And this is the first thing I created for my unborn baby:

It's a Basic Gray mini album that I am going to use like some kind of pregnancy journal. So you are going to see more of it as I decorate the pages.

I chose these colors for the cover because I don't know if it's a boy or girl yet so I decided to use some of my favorite colors that remind me of nature.

Paper: chocolate color cardstock, paper scraps, Cosmo Cricket "Earth Love"
Cuttlebug: Victoria folder, Persia die
Stamps: My Pink Stamper
Other: Sizzix swirl die, handcut flower, pearl, Sakura glaze pen, Cropadile

It seems I am a double lucky girl today. Once because my cropadile arrived in the mail and second because the sun came out for just enough I needed to take a quick photo of the album and show you my project for today's Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #99.

This week's sponsor is My Pink Stamper and I was sent some word stamps from the Family and Friends line to play with. I am sure Betty sent me the baby word intentionally. You did right, Betty, because as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to start decorating that BG album I had bought for this very purpose.

Your challenge for this week is to make a card, layout altered item etc. and use any sentiment on the front. Don't forget the cuttlebug. It's still a cuttlebug challenge. Add your link to the In Linkz gadget here by Tuesday, September 7 and check back on Wednesday to see if you won.
