I made this for my older dd, it will be given to her when she is MUCH older. I made a hard cover book, which is what her picture is mounted on. The covers are made of corrugated cardboard, and the pages are individually glued in. I wanted the book to be easily removed for reading, so it's attached to the lo with velcro. I hand sewed the flowers.
I was nearly done this lo when I realized something looked familiar, and realized I had drawn inspiration for the design from the beautiful lo "Count The Waves" by micupoftea.
Journaling in the book is:

You have moved out now, and I can't help but worry, but you should know I have faith in you. And I have faith in God to watch over you. The song on the next pages is what I've been listening to...
Pages 3 and 4: The lyrics to Wild World by Cat Stevens.
