Scrapbook for Ava

So two weeks ago tonight, my good friend had her precious baby Ava (who I got to see today!) I've forgotten how teeny tiny newborns are and I just miss that so much! She's just a beautiful little girl and I wanted to make a nice little "first" scrapbook for her since mommy is now busy with a newborn and just-turned 3 yr old!

I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch to create the cover (I told you I'd do a Mojo sketch!!). And here's the cover.

My friend really likes the vintage-y type things so this was my poor attempt at it, lol. My vintage needs more practice. With that said, I did love it! Yes, the thought crossed my mind to take out the Ava letters and put in my own daughter's, LOL. Is that so wrong?!? Ok, so I didn't keep it for myself, but vowed to make my own...YARIGHT!

There are about 12 embellished pages inside, and I really didn't get any shots of them, because you know I work at the last minute and wasn't able to spend some good quality time taking photos. During the few photos I DID take, my 22 month old was happily working the ins and outs of my copics...YIKES! (She's been wearing green copic marker on her leg for about 3 days now)

Here's a decent shot of some flowers I die cut and sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz Bed of Roses though!

Hope you have a great weekend! I have a stamp a stack this Sunday to finish preparing for. I hope to play with more stamps this weekend at some point though!

Until then.....
