Baby Mini Album & My Favourite Four - R4, C4

Hello Friends,
I am back after so many days..was busy in so many things around here and I have missed  visiting and commenting on your blog guys.Well i was busy in completing a baby album. I will be sharing it today with you all. It's a 6*6 mini album for a newborn baby boy.This album took so much of time to complete as sometimes I faced backache problems and other times got confused in setting layouts and embellishments for the pages. In the process of its making i realized how hard we crafters work to make someone's memories so special. I hope the receiver likes it. I am not a scrapbooker but always wanted to make one. Actually its my second mini. I am happy I finally finished it and will be soon dispatching it. So lets take a look at individual pages.
 P.S. -Picture Heavy Post

Front Page -
The Front cover contains lots of handmade embellishments - 3d star, flower, banner and few stickers.

The bottle is paper pieced from an old baby card. The flower is handmade and its super easy.

 This is one of my favourite page. I love the soft colours of the PP and the embellishments that i have used

I have made a scallop embellishment with some doodling on circle.Used double sided tape to make it 3d.

There is also a small tag in this page.The white space is left for journaling. The cute creature is stamped with imaginisce stamp and coloured with steadler water colour pencils

Entering this page into Lulupu Challenge#5 (My favourite Four) . I have used last row R4 (photo, stamping & colouring, pattern paper, 3d handmade embellishment)

This page again contains soft pastel colours.I find much easier to work with soft colours.

There is a small accordian fold inserted in this page for taking baby's foot and hand print and journaling. Pictures can also be pasted if desired.

I have also used cute 3d bottle sticker

Punched out hands and foots here

Page 4 -
This was the most difficult and time consuming page for me. I still feel some lacks in it.

I have added a gate fold to add more pictures or journaling

Page 5 -
This page is also my favourite. I have used brad in the center of flower on half scallop so it easily opens to write something

Page 6 -
Now this page contains stamped leaves, froggy and text with it. I have used glossy accents on frog. The green rose flowers are handmade.

So you can see there is also space for journaling

This is the pocket and pram is 3d sticker which can pulled out to write some text


Page 8 -
This page contains three pics and it was really difficult for me to set them in this small page. Actually the size
of pictures which i decided went a little wrong but i think this is how you learn from your own mistakes. I have used a sun sticker. The rainbow is handdrawn, handcut and coloured. The clouds are also handcut.
The flower, owl and date text is stamped. The main sentiment is computer generated.

The cloud can be pulled out as there is a pocket made for tag

Entering this page into Lulupu Challenge#5 (My favourite Four) . I have used column C4 (pattern paper, sticker, dry embossing, stamped flower)

I love the colours of this page..The flower is made from a corner punch. The apple and sentiment is stamped
