Baby Girl Scrapbook

Before I get started, I need to say that NATURE is out to GET ME!  As I was writing this post, I opened the front door to let the cat in, and a BIRD flew in the house!!!  I let out a blood curdling scream, and a "THERE'S A BIRD IN THE HOUSE - THERE'S A BIRD IN THE HOUSE"!!!  Hubby came running downstairs thinking there was an intruder.  He grabbed a towel and a box and went chasing after the bird.  It was flying from room to room, and I flew into the bathroom and locked myself in there!  Every time I peeked out, I saw Hubby running from room to room waving a towel - yelling for me to help - but I couldn't do it...and the bird would fly towards the door, and I would shut it as fast as I could.  Finally (after 15 minutes), hubby got smart and pinned the bird down under a tennis racket, scooped him up with the towel and set him free.  I am SUCH a chicken!!

OK - back to the post, sheesh - such excitement around here!!  So, awhile back I made a custom scrapbook for a baby girl, Zoe.  I wanted to go for more of a shabby chic look to go with the decor of the nursery.  I had a lot of fun with this, and added a lot of texture with tearing paper, velvet images, glitter, dry embossing and ink distressing.  The mom was so happy - and I was happy that she loved the custom gift!!

 Love this one - definitely one of my favorite projects ever!
