Daisy Baby Book

I have been working on this book for the past week now so that I can give it to my daughter, Sallie for her birthday next month.
I have taken as my inspiration the Little Kitchen Fairie named 'Oops a Daisy Fairie' and decided to use lots of my daisy stamps and embellishments.
The cover uses my baby wipe backgrounds and I have used far too many items from my stash to name them all but the stamps are:- Tildas from Magnolia, Personal Impressions and Anitas.
The book is held together with knotted organza ribbons and fastened with an organza bow.

These first pages feature a photo of the figurine which sits in my kitchen window and my daughters name.

A Dufex image alongside Tilda with bouquet.

Skeleton leaves, fabric flowers and organza ribbons.

Peel-offs and a stamp by Anita.

Tilda with basket alongside a dufex panel andflowers.

Embossed paper, fabric daisies with stamp by Personal Impressions.

A further photo with lots of tiny daisies and letter stickers.

I have learned a lot whilst making this book, making lots of mistakes along the way but I have had fun using diferent techniques and materials. I'm sure Sallie will love it and treasure it, as it is something special between the two of us.
