Adoption mini-book (pic heavy)

Some good friends of ours are adopting a little boy this month who is 2 years old.  We are just so very excited for them and can't wait to meet him!  What a blessing!  There was a surprise "baby" shower for the mom and she is one of my friends who loves all things scrapbooking.  I really wanted to make something special.  Since he is older I wanted him to know he was loved and a part of their family long before he ever joined their family.  So I made *him* a little picture book.  My friend can place a current picture of each member in the frames, then a pic of him, and pic of the 4 of them at the front.  I used a little icon to represent something that was special to each of them (mom is crafty, dad is in seminary, big sister likes horses, and he's a little boy so hopefully he likes planes :) ... and of course on the front is one of my favorite sentiments for little ones who are adopted!).

This is such a thoughtful gift, Kristen. I'm sure it will be treasured by all of the family. The Frame die cut is a great way to tie all of the pages together and it will certainly make it easier for the pictures to be inserted.

Oh, Kristin, this is perfect! I'm sure your friend, and her new son, will love it! Such a thoughtful gift!
I love how you used the Fabulous Frames.... it looks especially great cut out of text patterned paper!
