A Gift For a Friend!



One of my girlfriends gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able to see her yet. Our boys are going to a birthday party together tomorrow so I wanted to have a gift ready for her. When her daughter was born the standard email was sent out regarding date, size, and a bunch of absolutely stunning photos. I decided to take those photos and put together a 6x6 scrapbook for her. I will admit that I have yet to buy the new Simpy Scrappin' Milestones kit, but I did have half of one of my retired sets left over. What I did realize when I went to package it up was that I only have baby boys gift bags in my closet... that's what happens when you have two little boys back to back:) I decided to take the same idea from the little Halloween bag from yesterday and make a coordinating gift bag for the scrapbook. I really had fun using the new Big Shot Two Tags die to make the little gift tag as well. I also loved having an excuse to use up some of beautiful wide Pink Pirouette ribbon! I've got another sample of the scrapbook coming up next week... can't wait to share!

Your friend is very lucky to have a friend like you! What a great gift that I am sure she will love! And I must say you pull off "Girly" well! I can't!! Even when I try to do a girly page, it ends up boyish! hahah
