When you Wish upon a...

STAR...makes no difference who you ARE!!! Gosh I just lvoe that song...Disney is da MAN!!! I have a star to show you too, but it's a little bit of a different star...it's a star book! I made it for my husbands cousin Jennifer whowill be having a baby at the end of August. Wait till you see the AWESOME cupcakes she had there!!! The theme was sweet pea andlet me tell you those cupcakes were super sweet!!!

So you wanna see the star book? OKay okay here it is! Sorry these pictures aren't the greatest, but I was holding Bella and taking the pictures at the same time...realized before I left her house that I hadn't taken a picture of it! DUHHH

This is the front of the book, I love how it turned out! I used the simon lower chipboard letters from Stampin' Up! and covered them with Certainly Celery petal prints paper using modge podge and to make my edges so perfect I used Basic Greys precision tool kit...love that thing!
Here is a picture of the book open...you tie the front and back cover together and it looks like a star...hence the name...star book!!! And this is the book open so you can see what the pages look like. I used the stamp set Bundle of Joy (I don't think I can ever part with that one!) for the name, weight info and I used theSAB stamp set So Many scallops for all the inside pages.
And you know I had to have a matching card! Here it is...isn't it sparkly? I used the same papers and colors...gotta be matchy matchy!
And when that wasn't enough, I got out my beloved Bind-it-all and made a little advise book for her...isn't it cute? I just love making little gifts like these...of course I also bought her some clothes for the baby, but these are my most favorite things to give!
