Baby GAGA... 9x9 Baby Boy Accordion Album

Front Cover

Pages 1 and 2

Pages 3 and 4

Pages 5 and 6

Back Cover

Move over Lady Gaga... What is it about babies that makes us so gaga?  No, I haven't been bitten by that nasty bug...  lol

My SU friend apparently was bit, though, and she has a new bundle of boy to prove it.  :)

Her baby shower is coming up this Sunday and this is her gifty I made for her, or him, whichever way you want to look at it.  I hope she likes it.  :)

Each and everything I stamped was then clear embossed, so it will all remain a nice rich colour and won't fade out over time.  And I used my Cricut to cut the tags.  The front cover was inspired by an album I saw on fellow CTMH Consultant Michele Rezewski's blog.  You can see her album HERE.

This is gorgeous!!! I love the black...I wouldn't have thought to add black with this paper but it adds the perfect touch.

Thanks, Jayma! It's actually Outdoor Denim, it's just showing really dark in my photos. ;)

I remembered this album for oh-so-long ago and finally created my version of it! I'm doing a Valentine's workshop next week and used your layouts for a 6x6 Sweetheart accordian album. About to post it on my blog :) Thanks for the inspiration I get from you SO OFTEN! I refer to your blog regularly.
