Space Themed baby girl album

My cousin and his girlfriend had a baby in May and I am just getting the baby album done now (i know I know i'm so behind). But I have to say I was completely stumped on how to go about this album. The parents decided not to find out what sex the baby was going to be before she arrived in the world, and so a couple of days after she was born I asked about a theme. . .space.

I had such a hard time finding anything in the current market that was space-themed geared towards girls. So after much searching, I found this paper by Reminisce which was absolutely PERFECT. I then found the out of this world stamp/die set by Lawn Fawn but even after I coloured and cut them out the astronauts still didn't look girly so I used little bows that I have had in my stash for atleast three years and they are perfect!!!! I went to a scrapbooking garage sale at Paper Art Creations in Leduc Alberta a couple of weekends ago and found a boy stamp set (cannot remember for the life of me the manufacturer) but in that set they had an alien so I had o get that!!!! The larger rocket ships and aliens I cut on my silhouette on white paper, then coloured them, then added a coloured base, then added stickles to give it some sparkle. 

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you appreciate this album, as much as I have enjoyed making it :)
