Grandma brag booksl....

So, if you've read my blog at all lately, you know I'm waiting to be a grandma again.

So, while I was waiting yesterday I decided to make a cute little brag book to put pictures in to take to work and show the little guy off.

About 18 months ago I made this cute little brag book for my granddaughter Lucy when she was born. I decided I really liked the size and the amount of pictures that it held, so I made one with the same pattern for little Brayden.

This was little Lucy and the front of the brag book. Then when you open it up, it holds a few pictures on each side......but.....
As you can kind of see here, it has two pull out pages on each side to hold even more pictures.

That's what it looks like with the all the cute pictures in it. Well, since I don't have any baby pictures yet to put in it. Here is what it looks like while we wait.

I have to say that I didn't use stampin up dsp on this one. I did use Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler cardstock, but the DSP was from My Mind's Eye. My daughter wanted a more manly man type of scrapbook, and Stampin Up's baby paper isn't really manly man, it's more cutesy. Which is good too.

Anyway, this is the front of the scrapbook.

And this is the inside without any pictures and with the 4 pull out pages .

I will take pictures of it and show you when it's full of pictures of the cute little guy when he finally gets here.

It was so much easier to make the second time around. The first one I made seemed to take forever, because I didn't understand the directions all that well. When I finally figured it out, the directions made perfect sense. But, since I'd already made one, this made up in like an hour.
I got the directions from Lynn Pratt's blog Stamp n design. There is a link on my sidebar if you are interested. I think the tutorial cost $5.99, but I'm getting my money's worth.

My daughter has a doctor's appointment tomorrow and the doctor said if she hasn't had it yet, she will induce her if she wants. They are concerned because he is so big. So, if she hasn't gone into labor by tomorrow morning, I think she's going to take the doctor up on the inducement.

We have been doing accupunture points for inducing, and grandma's had a little chat with him, my son even went out and bought castor oil. We don't want her to do the castor oil because we have heard too many horror stories about how it was bad for the baby. She will just wait it out instead. So, hopefully next blog post has baby pictures in it.....hahahahaha

Thanks for peeking in today.

    My mom did castor oil and it worked fast, but the baby was already 8 days late.... Good luck to your daughter!
