A Unique Combination

Hello! I'm Alyssa, and it's been a while since I posted here... so I thought it was about time! :)

In my DT box this month, I received a fun combination of products from Webster's Pages, and Fancy Pants. I was especially interested in this Brag Book from Fancy Pants (in the store now!):

Before I got started on it, I took a few photos of the inside for you. The book is a combination of journaling pages, pocket pages, and photo sleeves, and they are alternated throughout the book.
I wanted to create this as a baby book for a friend. I know her pretty well, and so I knew that she would enjoy having a place to journal about her thoughts about motherhood, the baby's routine, milestones, and other tidbits. So I knew this was perfect! I started with the cover:
Then, on the first page of each section (pages are rotated - about 10 journaling pages, followed by a photo sheet and a pocket page) I created a little title page. So now, each section has a specific time in baby's life that will be recorded within it:

Then I decorated each pocket page, keeping themes and seasons (corresponding to the age that baby will be at that time) in mind:
All the papers and most of the embellishments I used are from Webster's Pages. It's all in the store now, and coupon code APRIL20 will save you 20%. What will you do with your brag book?
