A Smile Each Day: Mini-album

The font for Lucas is called Janda Curly Girl Chunky
One of my coworkers took the first trimester off from work to be with her adorable new son.  She returned to work last week and it was not easy for her to be away.  I wanted her to have something that she could look at and smile everyday so I created this mini-album for her.
I started with a Tim Holtz 6x6 Grungebook and cut paper from the DCWV Snapshot Stack to cover each page. I love the colors on this stack and how great it looked with some tape from my growing collection. On many pages I just used the paper as is, but I had to add some of the fun embellishments as well. I loved the Polaroid cut outs above.
The way these pennants (from the Snapshot Stack) looked on the page were also fun. I added some silver disks using my I Rock and they turned out just great. The opposite page has a photo of her son sleeping so this cut from Wall Decor and More was the perfect touch.
I also wanted to have some stamps on some of the pages. so I went to my Pink By Design stash and selected a few.  This is my favorite of the pages with a stamp on it. The stamp is from the Rain or Shine set. Here are a few more photos and some details.
The Hearts are off Designers Calendar & the font for the Mommy is Acknowledgement . 
The Red Polka Dot tape is from trendy Tape and the stickers were in my collection.
Love this paper stack and the fun things you can cut out to use.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  This week I have my post for Cricut FANactics on Wednesday and some much needed time off to celebrate Thanksgiving and my craft room. Have a wonderful Monday all.
