Morning ladies....

I was three quarters of the way through this 8" square mini album for my stepson's best friend when I realised I'd miscalculated the width of the spine and couldn't add all of the pages to it, happy I was not and there wasn't any way it could be rectified as I'm making it for the baby's first twelve months

I've now started on the new album, I will be able to do something else with the one I'm showing and I can remove the name Cleo and put something else there
Take away the large tail on the bow, the clasp and pearl embellishment and you have an 8" square card.  I made the bow with my envelope maker board

The image is from a NitWit Collection and is a digital download, gorgeous papers and embellishments

I added glossy accents to the balloon, the flower centres, the head of the safety pin and the eyes of the 'animal'.  I was intending to add cute little flowers on the chipboard letters, the pretty lace was bought at our local Boyes store, they have an excellent range

I love this paper, it's from the 'It's A Girl!' 8" premium paper pad.  I used a Spellbinders die on the right side of it as it has cute small hearts

The offending spine remains naked 

And this is the inside cover.  I love the tag stating 'brand sparkling new'

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
