What's Up Wednesday?

Well I made a lovely little video last night but I couldn't get it to load so instead I have a bunch of photos.  My friends and I threw a baby shower for our friend, Alison.  I took a ton of photos with the idea that I would make her a shower book.  I got a 8x8 We R Memory Keepers Scrap Book from the store as well as all the boy themed lime twist papers from My Mind's Eye.  I also added a couple sheets of My Mind's Eye fine and dandy paper.  I love the way these papers go together.  It totally takes the guess work out of color combos.
I had a bunch of photos so I wanted something fast and easy.  I cut some photos to 4x4 and left some at 4x6.  I simply mounted them on the paper and cut out some words on the Cricut.  My Mind's Eye has great accessories that go so well with this paper.  

I had so many photos of her opening presents so I cropped all of them down to 4x4 and slapped them down on the page.
For some pages I spent more time but once I was organized this book came together very fast.  I have a few finishing touches and then I can send it off. 
I got some lime twist twine that I plan on using in the book.  I am thinking I will tie it around the 2x3 pattern paper that I put inside the pockets of this page protector.  The book came with divided page protectors with room for 2-4x6s and 2-2x4 spots.  I cut pattern paper to fit in those pockets.  I also bought some full 8x8 page protectors and used a mix of both. 
Sorry for the delay.  Thanks for stopping in. 
Pin It!

Wow, impressive! That's such a lovely gift to give! Thanks for all the photos of it, I'm sorry the video didn't work. I'd loved to have seen it.

Fabulous, Leah!
