Baby shower, exploding box

Good day everyone,

Well I'm going to be a first time grandma in June and this is the creation 
I made for the baby shower we had at my house last weekend


This is my first exploding box and I had so much fun creating it
I used white cardstock for the base along with Maja design papers
in Vintage Spring and Vintage baby collection


T change the color from pink to Lilac in the vintage baby paper
I used Shaded Lilac distress ink 


Every pocket has a pull out white booklet
that I added a lilac tab, and also added extra pockets
for journaling
Lots of lace, ribbon, glitter and pearls


The hardwood floor background was created using
my score pal and distress inks


I found this cute wooden crib at the dollarstore
and painted it white, created a cute comforter with added lace


For the cover, lots of flowers, ribbon and pearls
leaf diecuts and flowers sprays
