Baby Camo Mini

Hey my friends....I actually got a creative project done.  It's amazing when you are making things for others how much more motivated you are to get it completed.  I created another baby boy mini-album for a friend of mine to give at a baby shower.  The mom is using camouflage in the nursery so I tried to pull some of that into the album.  I really struggled with that part because my mind just does not connect camouflage with a baby boy.



 
The Quote on the front reads: God created boys full of spirit and fun, To explore and conquer to romp and run.
Inside cover and flap.  I used Cricut Cartridge Everyday Paper dolls for the fish, adding a googly eye and used the Marvy Gelly Roll pen in white to accent him.

I fussy cut the lion from the paper to create him and then added googly eyes.  The grass was cut out from Everyday Paper Dolls and pop dotted.  I just loved the addition of buttons for flowers.
The elephant was a 3D embellishment from Paper Bliss. The corduroy brad is from Close To My Heart and the mini buttons are from Favorite Findings, tied with DMC Embroidery Floss.
On these 2 pages I used a whale button from the Baby Animals by Dress It Up, the bubbles were created from Every Day Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge and highlighted with a Marvy Gellyroll Pen in White, and a Sakura Liquid Applique Pen in white. The starfish is cut from the Cricut Accent Essentials Cartridge .  These are all pop dotted for dimension.
The turtle is another 3D Embellishment from Paper Bliss, and the I Love you this much ribbon is from Michael's.  The hearts were punched and pop dotted from a small punch that I have had forever and not sure who the manufacturer is.
I also added a baby safety pin to the ribbon on the left hand page.  The brad is from Close to My Heart.

The last 2 pages.  I used baby blue baby rik rak from Wrights. The giraffe was cut from Everyday Paper Dolls, I then cut out the giraffes pattern and used the black out feature for the brown.  Of course he had to have one of those googly eyes.  I did some pen work on his mane to make the little hairs stand out.
In addition to the pages you see here there are 6 large hidden tags between the pages.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest creation and that it has given you some inspiration for you own!
