Boy or Girl? Altered Photo Books

Tomorrow (August 9th) is the day we find out if we are having a boy or girl. My husband still insists there are twins, but we have already had a sonogram that showed one so twins would be a huge surprise if he ends up being right. 

I made these altered photo books as part of the reveal tomorrow for the grandparents-to-be. I made two of each gender. I plan on putting the first sonogram picture along with tomorrow's picture in these. I picked up the books at Alco for $1.00 each. They will be good enough for carrying around in a purse or whatever they decide to do with them. This post will come late since I want this little brag book to be a surprise to the g-parents. 

This project uses the new stamp set Baby Boutique. I really like stamp sets that have solid color and I couldn't resist the little turtle. I plan on making shower invitations and thank-you notes from this set in the future.
