    Default Baby shower gift or for hospital...help choose!!

    My brother in law is getting ready to have his first baby, well his gf is, not him. LOL Anyway, her shower is in a couple weeks and I really wanted to make them a LO that I could frame and they could add her newborn picture to. So I lifted this one from one I saw on etsy...but it was still really hard. I LOVE it, and want to keep it for my baby girl, but I digress. Anyway, DH thinks I should keep it, take a picture of her myself when she's born and then put it in and give it to them later. What do yall think? We are getting other things for the shower too, more practical things, but I wanted yalls opinions. Oh, and the extra chipboard tags are from the last scrapbook train. I got them out then and just now used them, so if you recognize them, they were probably yours before...and THX!!!

    If you want it to be a very intimate gift then take the picture yourself and give it to them 100% completed. But if you want them to pick their favorite picture for it then give it at teh shower.

    By the way that is an amazing layout. I am sure they will love it.

    tough call! I always wonder the exact same thing! I thnik since you are getting them practical things as well, then maybe later? I dunno though...it's REALLY nice, and would be great to show off at the shower too....maybe you could temporarily put an ultrasound pic in there to give it at the shower and then tell them to put their fave newborn one in once she's here? Or maybe that idea is silly. lol

    I don't think that idea is silly at all! I think the ultrasound picture idea is a great compromise! I love the layout.

    I think it is great! What if you took a pic of the mom at the shower by all the unopen gifts but get her belly in the shot???

    that's a really hard decision ... I think I'd wait and take a photograph myself to give it to them completed.

    it looks beautiful!

    I love the page! I don't know about what pic to put in it though ...hmmmm ... I like Gwen's idea about waiting and taking a picture yourself!
