The Many Faces of Babies Board Book

I have a fun project...but a long post...to share with you tonight. I made this little board book for one of my colleagues, she's a sweetheart and is expecting her first baby. I'm so happy for her and I thought I'd make this funny little book to showcase some of the funny faces babies make. :)

As you can see from all the pictures below, I used the entire Ooh Baby Stamp Sheet by The Stampsmith to create this cute little book.  I don't think I've ever created anything using every stamp in set, but this was a super fun project to make.  I used cereal boxes for the pages and die cut pattered paper to cover the cereal box board.   I adhered the patterned paper with a glue stick and distressed the page edges, the photostamp images and the sentiments using tea dye ink. I looked at all the images and came up with the sentiments myself.  The sentiments I chose are my interpretations of the baby expression alongside.  To finish it off, I went for a visit to my friend, Janice's and she graciously let me borrow her Bind-it-all.   Ya gotta love that little machine!  Thanks, so much, Janice!

Holy cow that was a long post!   Lots of images to upload!  I hope you enjoyed the many faces of babies...after all laughter is the best medicine!

Thanks for stoppin' by!  :)
