A baby boy mini for Hugh!

 This is another mini baby boy album my friend Eimear asked me to make for her friend Catherine who had a lovely baby boy named Hugh! I used the DCWV nanas nursery papers for this album...
 I used some nice boy themed ribbons on the binding...
 On each page I added a die cut baby bottle for journalling and also on the plainer patterned pages I added some baby boy themed stickers like this one has a little comb...

 A lil heart and bow...

 lil baby booties...

 A matching button...

 A CUTE felt nappy with a blue pin...
 I love this paper...
 Back cover with a lil romper...
That's it!
Thanks for visiting-I am working on lots of other design team projects etc for July so I can't wait to share them,
