"Lift the Flap" Board Book

I am so excited to share photos of my latest project with you! My girlfriend Dawn is expecting her fist child, a baby boy, in a few weeks. Her baby shower is this Saturday and I wanted to make something special for her son. (I am crossing my fingers she won't see these pics before her shower. I just couldn't resist posting them!)

I came across this board book on Oriental Trading's website and thought it would be perfect. Dawn is a teacher, and I know she understands the importance of books for children. Underneath the tabs, I plan on putting photos of Dawn, and her husband, Jon, along with other people from their family. Enjoy!!!

I designed this book using:

1. (On the cover) "Stick With It" adhesive letters and sugar coating glitter from Doodlebug Design, Inc. Peel and stick these adhesive letters and then remove the top film and add your glitter...lots of fun to do! We sell these at Memory Works, order them from me today!
2. The "Animal Cookies" paper kit from Close to My Heart. (I won this at a crop once and thought the bright colors would be sure to capture the little guy's attention!)

3. Stickers from Sandylion.

4. Stampin' Up's Tidy Alphabet set.

P.S. The blank book from Oriental Trading was only $5.99!!! :0) Gotta love a bargain!

I decided to leave a few photo boxes throughout the book, where Dawn could add some of her favorite family photos.

I just LOVE this frog I made! Open his mouth to peek at a favorite photo. He is just so cute! Here is a close up:

And from the frog, came the idea for a catapillar! Taa Daa! Here's a close up of the little bugger:
