Baby Shower Mini Album - Gift Idea

A mini album is a perfect solution for a quick baby shower gift. My friend is about to get really busy with her third boy.  "My three sons" is her new line.  So, we want to give her something girly and something to show her the moms and girls in her life, too.  You can recreate this same mini album with the same paper line available from Craftangles.
