Baby word album for a new friend

Hello everyone, I hope all is going well. I have a new project to share with you today. I finished my first handmade "chipboard" word album. I made it for a swap for a nice new friend. She has a new grandbaby that came into this world in December 2011. I wanted to make something special for this little guy.
 This is the front of the album I used my cricut and gypsy to make the base of eash page. Welding a letter to a rectangle to create the page. The stamp next to the 'B' says Cherish the Day, it's from close to my heart. I love that stamp set.
 This photo is of the inside of the first 'B' and the front of the 'A' (which I thought was cute as a bottle). The little baby pin was actually a brad but I took of the clasp portions of it and use it as an embelishment. What do you think? Does it look ok?
 This picture is the back of the 'A' and the front of the second 'B'. I love this train paper, it goes perfectly for a boy, doesn't it? All the paper used on this album was from DCWV. The patterned baby was from their Nana's kids stack and the solids from one of their solids stack. I'm obsessed with their paper, I wish I had the means (and space) to have all their stacks.
 You can't see it in this picture very well (kind of just looks like a water mark on the left side of the solid green paper) but I used some iridescent embossing powder with a swirl type stamp (I don't know the name of it). The effect looks great when you have it in your hands).
 Even though this album is small I wanted to make room for plenty of pictures. On the last two pages there is plenty room for at least 8 small pictures. I hope she finds/has the perfect pictures to put in the album.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope to be back soon with more projects to share.
