Inspired by a book

Good Morning,
It’s Thursday and time for a new challenge over at CRAFT Challenge.
Our theme for this week is
Inspired by a Book’
We have three fabulous sponsors this week

For my DT projects this week  

Inspired by 'The New Baby by Mercer Mayer'.... 

I  used the 'Book Box Set' to create a box for a mini album for my eldest daughter's baby shower. She is expecting her first baby - a boy at the end of June.


The papers are from Katie Pertiet's  Paper set  - 'My Baby Boy' - here
The dies are all Marianne dies.

Ribbon and magent for the box closure are from my stash.

A Duck shaped Card Invite Set  from the Cutting Café to create a baby shower card and favour boxes.

I resized the pattern on my Silhouette machine to make the smaller ducks and then created a tray to fit between the two ‘ducks’.
The ribbon and dummy are from my stash.
