Baby Shower Gifts

I made the following for baby shower gifts. First is the name plaque that I created from a metal "scroll" sign that I got for $6 on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It had "love" and crosses all over the front and was oriented portrait style. I covered it with paper that coordinates with the nursery colors and added the oval with the baby's name. Two holes drilled in the metal allowed me to thread some ribbon to hang it landscape for a nice gift. I am quite pleased with the outcome.
I also made a BABY mini album and a Grandma's Brag Book (that I forgot to take a photo of). Look at the cute little monkey from create a critter. I just love him!
This is the back of the album and there are 2 "micro mini" albums inside to add additional photos. I hope you like it! 
It has been a rough week for me but I am thankful to have "made it" to the weekend. Mike and I just returned from a nice dinner date at Clear Springs and are looking for a movie to watch on PPV. Happy Mother's Day to all of my blog friends out there. Be sure you tell your mother you love her - you never know when it will be your last opportunity.
