Baby Album for Reid

You might remember I photographed Jo a couple of weeks ago? Well here are a couple more photos from the shoot now I have finished editing them!
I have used a "seventies" action on this first one which I kind of like for the subject of the photo. I think these "washed out" actions can be overused and still prefer a naturally coloured photo.
This one is soooooooooooo Jo. As soon as I opened it I smiled - look at those blue eyes!

Jo is having a baby shower on Sunday and I started this project a couple of months ago for her (and Reid) and I have finally got around to finishing it!
I have used a 7 Gypsies 6x6 album and covered it.

Added lots of different shaped pages, including this felt pocket with a couple of tags to store inside.

Made some pages using co-ordinating Bazzill.

A simple tag with felt embellishment.

Transparency pages.

There are also envelope pages to store bits and pieces in and pages dedicated to his big brother and sister.

I have also included some extra tags, transparencies, bazzill and embellishments that Jo can add herself as she completes the album.

I have also left the page protectors in the album so she can create some traditional pages or add bits and bobs if she wants to.
Simple but effective!

I have been putting some final touches to the classes for the Hyden retreat and hope to have some sneak peeks later in the week - so stay tuned! If you are interested in joining us in Hyden then here's the details:
