Advice for the New Mom

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Sunday as much as I have. I got to go out with one of my son's for lunch. Just him and I. What a joy it was. Then after lunch I made a tag book for a Baby Shower. Robyn gave me the ideal, when I mentioned there was going to be a shower, She most graciously (because she said that is what BFF do for each other l0l ) redirected me to this correct post that inspired me. I used my Cricut to cut all the tags and centers. The Stretch My Imagination cartridge was used. I used the same cartridge to cut out the little babies with the little onsies on, and the baby rattler. I cut up colored indexed cards, and centered them on the first layer for the shower attendees to write the new Mom some words of advice. I thought using the ruled index cards would make it easier for everyone to write on. I reserved the the first page for my friend the new grandmother to write the first piece of advise. Then I embellished each page differently. I added a front and back, and some ribbon to the ring. I hope the new Mother enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.
