One to Send...Another Princesses Challenge

Popping in this morning to share another Papertrey Princesses challenge...this one from Leah who challenged us to make a card that we would send out within a week.  While I love making cards...and other gifties...I definitely have a hard time getting them into the hands...and hopefully hearts...of those they are intended for.  I was so up for this challenge!
A friend of the family had their first baby this week...a precious little girl...and what better card is there to make than one to celebrate a new little life?  I couldn't resist CASEing a card made by Betsy Veldman and using PTI's new Hanging Out stamp set and dies...TO. DIE. FOR.  Seriously, folks!
I had been hoarding some Cosmo Cricket Little Girls paper, and I talked myself into cutting into it...I was not disappointed!  These little jumpers and t-shirts and onesies are ADORABLE...they look like something you could pick up at Gymboree, don't they? 
I've wanted for awhile to make a little gifty scrapbook that Nichole Heady had on her blog a while ago...an easy way for parents to document their baby's first year milestones.  This was the perfect opportunity to do that...so, of course, I had to make a tag that matched the gift...I cut the tag with a coaster, so it's strong enough to stay on the book for all times!  If this little girl is going to be anything like my kids, though, it won't last forever...their baby books are well loved (uh...kinda destroyed)...but I don't mind...we spent many hours talking about how special they are and how many people loved them.  
I didn't get a chance to photograph the inside of the album, but it was easy peasy to put together...I'll definitely be making more of them!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a SUPER Saturday!
