Gift book for expectant mum

good afternoon! hope you are all keeping well. This is a gift book that I made up for a good friend I work with having her first baby. When I intially thought "how on earth can I do a card big enough for 30 or more well wishes?" I thought a book would be a great idea. there are 6 pages all embellished to the max .... and the best thing is that everything except for the green DP, matching chipboard animals and crochet flowers are from my stash....even the binding wire is what I cut off from my calendars!. The front image is from nitwit collections. I am really happy with how it has come up. The pages are 600gsm board I got from office works and I have bound it with my zutter.
I hope she likes it as much as you enjoy browsing the pages. Thanks for stopping by XOX Tania
