ABC book for baby Stone.

Tomorrow is Stone's 1st birthday. My sweet baby nephew who is SOOOO squeezably CUTE (I'll post pictures of him tomorrow). I've wanted to do an ABC book for a while and this was fun to do, although it may be the only one I ever make. 26 pages of detail...but all for a good cause!













Cute story from my sister: My 4-year old niece, Presley was reading her brother's book, going through each page and saying what each one was. When she got to the last page (as shown above) she said, "This is the part where Aunt Deb tells you she loves you." *heart melting* Never under-estimate the importance of signing your work!

**All of the letters and most of the shapes were cut using my Cricut. Alphabet is Mickey Font, shapes are DoodleCharms and Paper Doll Dress up. I also had to get some clip art online, print and cut out. And some of the embellishments are my own hand -- the robot (thanks to Carrie for the drawing) and the nest with the bird. Labels were hand stamped by me. **

I love this book! But then I love everything you do! Presley's comment was definitely and "hand on the heart and say ahh" moment! Can't wait to see the real thing!! xo

That turned out great, what a special keepsake! So many nice details! That would take me forever though, holy cow. I don't blame you if that's the last one you do! ;)
