jbs mercantile banner/mini-album

i was in charge of the august mini-album kit.  i found this cute little bunting set from punky sprouts and fell in love with the new baby line from my mind's eye, so i decided to have a baby focus theme.

i designed the banner to be reversible.  one side for boys and one side for girls.  this would be super awesome if you have children of both genders.  if you're part of a dating pair it would be way cute to showcase baby pics of you and your special someone.  flashback to your youth and use photos of you and your siblings when you were babies.  or how about a mother and son mini-book?  his baby pics on one side and yours on the other?  those were all thoughts that went through my head when i was choosing pics. 

i ended up making mine a birthday banner.  g has his birthday at grandma's house every fall, so i made one side with photos from his last birthday and the other side is of baby riley who lives in england, but comes home for her birthday when she can.  i think this will make a great display piece at their next birthday parties!

 here is the girl side . . .

 and here is the boy side . . .

and look!  when not in use in stores so neat and tidy as an adorable mini-album!  happy birthday!
