Love you Forever Page

Here's what we will be doing tonight in my Scrapbooking Class.  You asked for a Baby Girl page and now you've got a fun, sweet little baby page.  The children's book, "Love You Forever" was in the back of my mind when I created this page.  If you don't have a baby girl, it could be about you or about someone special that you know.  Imagine making this page for a Baby Shower Gift.  You could take photos at the shower and mount them on this page.  What a great gift!!!  Also, with a few minor changes this could be for a baby boy.  Again, you have to use your imagination.  Let me know what you think!

You'll find some of the details here...
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink
DSP:  Subtles Prints Pack and various others
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue
Big Shot:  Bathtub, Apothecary Accents Framelits (New), Oval Accent Bigz Die, Buttons Embosslit, Heart Embosslit, Timeless Type Alphabet, Tasteful Trim
Accents:  Baby Outfit (premade or make your own with my card stock/scrap paper)

I'm looking forward to a fun evening of scrapbooking.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Come again soon!
