Baby Mini book

Hi All
I have made this cute  mini book using the fab new paper pad from Trimcraft /Cavania called "its a girl". The pad includes tags and stickers which I used throughout the book and the rocking horse on the front is a sticker from the pad too .
The cute crocheted  pram, ribbons and gems are all  from Meiflower Crafts. .The rest of the embellies  are ones I have had lying around for ages...The book was made using 6x6 card bases which I cut in half and tied back together using Meiflower crafts organza ribbon .The flowers are made using a punch and its a girl papers. The envelope on the last page was made using the we are memory keepers envelope punch board. I have left plenty of space for cute pics.
