Anything but a card.

I made this little book to have something to put a few photos of my little grand daughter in. The photos range from this one here which is less than 2 days old when she came home from hospital.This pink suit is Poppy's swimsuit and matching hat when she went on her first holiday abroad! The other one is just relaxing on her Mum's knee at home.
Poppy in her hat is again on her holidays. Poppy in bouncy chair is at Granny's house. What a lovely smile!

Poppy having a lovely bubble bath with her ducks. And a bigger girl with very red cheeks in her bath.

Bouncing Poppy with Missy her favourite Labrador in the background.

Poppy is now a big girl aged 20 months. She loves to be outside!!
I made this little book using a Funky Hands cd. I was able to print directly onto card so that saved having to cut out everything twice. I had to jiggle the letters a little bit so that I could get all five fitted together so that you could see the book says POPPY. I used ribbons, embellishments, brads and flowers from my stash.
I am not entirely happy with it but hopefully the next one I make will be better. I am going to enter it in the Truly Scrumptious challenge which is anything but a card.
Thanks for looking.
