For Olive Nicole + Pebbles Inc.

Well folks I take off for vacation first thing in the morning! So I am going to leave you for awhile with this project.  My sister asked if I would make a baby mini for a gift.  I chose to go ahead and use Happy Go Lucky by Pebbles along with a Maya Road album, which is discountinued however THIS ONE would be great. Even though it is not traditional baby girl colors I love the combination and I think it came out super cute.  I hope she likes it!  


I made library pockets for a couple pages so the mom can tuck things into it and write some journaling on the tag.  




Because I thought it might be handled a lot I used American Crafts ZING! embossing powder on the ruffled edges instead of glitter.  I also used 4x4 size photos since they seem to be so popular lately.  SO folks I will try and see if I can blog where I am going.  I may or may not have internet so we shall see.  If not have a good week!
