she’s having a baby

My sister in law, that is. These are exciting times for the clan. :)We’re throwing her a book themed baby shower. Over the weekend, I got together with Michelle (my sister-in law’s sister) and we printed, assembled and mailed out these lovelies, designed and illustrated by Michelle herself. Her artistic abilities and creativity seriously blows me away. My only measly contribution to this project was the chocolate brown matting and the sewn edge.

    Can you please tell me which book the last picture of the baby is from? I am trying to find babies from kids books to use for invitations also!
