Hi Friends,

I am very proud of this double page spread; I don't think I have ever made a layout with as much detail as this one. I'm planning on framing these for my friend's very first baby to put in his loosely animal themed room on the wall or she can just put these in a scrapbook. I consider this a labor of love - so appropriate for a BABY shower. :)
