PIXIE COTTAGE CHALLENGE

Hope your week is going well. Yipee it's already Wednesday and the Pixie Cottage Challenge is cute. How easy is that??

This is my cutie. A Baby Boy album for my dear friend Cindy. My last post is a card for her and this album is also for her. The reason they are moving is because their only son who now lives in Texas is having his first child. They have been trying for years and Joy of Joys they have a son due in about 8 weeks. Cindy and Michael want to be near to be able to spend time with their only grandchild.

I decided to make her a paper bag album because I had once made one for her birthday which she still rants about. I used the Waltzingmouse Sketch. Its a pretty simple front page. The red star in embossed with stars and the edges distressed. The Pixie Cottage image is the cute little Blake from Michelles Scrapbooking and More. It is also distressed and attached with a button. I used a zig zag stitch plus a decorative star stitch down the side and punched stars to add some fun down the other side. The edges are also distressed as is the bag itself. Its all tied up with lots of ribbons. I also distressed the gramma, grammpa and star. It has some fun inside pages which I will share later.

What a super gift for the new grandparents-to-be. I know I would be 'over the moon' with this adorable album. I'm so happy for them. All the stars, distressing, and fab ribbon are just so special. Great job, Davi, and I'm sure straight from your heart to theirs.
