Tiny Treasures of Gabby


If it weren't for my favorite cousin Andrea, I would not have pictures of my adorable niece Gabby. I am so grateful to her, she visits almost weekly and is one of Gabby's Godmothers just like me. She is funny, generous, pretty, mature & really my favorite cousin (I have never been hesitant to say that either). Recently she reminded me of a fun memory of when we were younger (I am 5 years older) and used to 'practice' french braiding her hair when I was learning and she was so patient to humor me. She braided Gabby's hair last month and told her about Auntie Donna braiding her hair and Gabby said, "yea braid hair". She actually did a real good job with it too!


I made this tin of my favorite pics she sent in March/April of some Firsts for Gabby. In the above photo this was taken March 1st - her first haircut (by her Aunt Cathi) check out the look on her face!
The next photos are her 1st trip to the beach and her 1st big girl bed (which happens t be a Princess bed) believe it or not - these 3 events occurred the same weekend! Andrea always gets the BEST photos and I can't thank her enough for blessing me with them! The least I can do to show my appreciation is make her gifts using them.

I used Melanie's What's in Your Tin set 1 by Gina K Designs for this gift album and there are photos on both sides of the cardstock. I kept the outside of the tin simple just in case she decides she wants to keep this in her purse so nothing is damaged.
