finished baby book!

Last week, I finished a baby book for some friends of ours who are expecting their first baby (a girl, obviously). It would have had more pages, but, I really looked at the new Pooh cartridges for the cricut, and I decided to cut it a bit shorter than I planned, and make them another book to take to them in the hospital of her first year. So, anyway, this book is for pictures taken at the hospital. Mom isn't really a girly-girl, so, I decided to forego the baby pinks and lavenders, even though, I would have really enjoyed that beings I only have boys! So, all the base pages are the same color of coral, even though they all look a little different, then I used a burgandy and moss green, so, it is still girly, but maybe not too much? It turned out pretty good, I guess. The orientation is 11X8 1/2, which I really enjoy doing for this type of book.
Title page
again, the backgrounds are all the same, taken in the same spot, one after another, I'm not sure why they all look a little different.
Mom and Dad pages, I used rubons and some vellum quotes.
Grandparents. Love, love, love the Fancy Pants stamps!
For the new family! And some other random pictures. I had fun playing with the patterned papers on these
There is another 2 pages, but they are super simple with no embellishments and 3 spots on each page for 4x6 pics. It would only let me upload 5 pics, so, I'm just not going to post them! The picture came out blurry anyways!
So, tell me what you think for a baby girl book? I'm going to leave a few empty page protectors in the back for the footprints and certificates they give out at the hospital, the size is perfect for her to just slip them in!
Thanks for looking!
