Retro Grammy Brag Book

  Welcome paper lovers!! Today I have a Grammy brag book to show you. I sure seem to be in the baby boy book mode. This is my 4th one in as many months! Like I have said before nothing is more fun than making baby projects!!

 I had already picked up this great retro paper up at Paper Daisies. It is the Little Boy Blue line from Crate Paper. So when a friend asked me to make this I was ready to go.
   Below is a shot of the first two pages.
   For this book I made a lot of foldouts so there would be lots of room for photos.

 I love this paper with its cool retro look and the bright vibrant colors.

 The photo below is a shot of a trifold. It is an easy way to add photo space in a small book.

 Ooops I forgot to open the foldout on the right side page in the picture below. There is also space to journal Grammy's favorite memories!
 I used key rings to bind the book. I went back and forth on whether to add ribbon to the key rings, I finally decided not to because it's a boy book!! I know that's silly but I also wanted to keep the clean lines of the book going.
  Thank you for stopping and taking a peek at this little treasure! Guessing that Grammy will get some bragging done with a new little boy to show off!!! Congrats and enjoy!!! Have a great day, Lori!
