One of My Gifts For a Friend

I realized that I have not shown everyone my little gift that I made for our (Brian and I) very very good friends Ben and Alana Gwinner. They are expecting and their little bundle of joy will arrive into this world in April 2009! Very exciting stuff! Anyhow, I wanted to make them something that they could put their boy's hospital bracelet into and his hospital wear as well. I wished I had one of these when my little girl was born. I also created a little mini album to go into it.

I purchased the metal tin and the scrapbook paper from my job. The collection is called Toodle Loo. It is such a colorful palette and works especially well for spring and baby related projects. I had a blast making this gift.

By the way, I just have to say my excitement has not passed. I have been thinking about my blog all the time! I'm such a dork :)

I have to tell you, every time I open that little tin and look at everything my eyes fill with tears of joy! It's such an amazing gift and we are so thankful for having you two in our lives! I'll have to take a picture and show you, but it's sitting on baby's dresser in the center of the baby book and pictures. I absolutely love it, I can't even begin to tell you! :) Thanks girl SO much from the bottom of my heart!
