Hello Crafteronies!

I was only just told of a party for my girlfriends one year old for this weekend.  I Always like to make my gifts, and so I first found a post about a toddler's first photo album.  (v.cute!  Iron on photos on a fabric book!).  I went straigt to her facebook, but there just aren't enough photos to use without exluding some of the family. 

But I did find this beautiful pic of the little girl and her daddy standing togther looking at some horses at a farm.  I'm just racking my brain on how to use this pic in a crafty project... a toy, or a decoration for her room.  But I'm having crafter's block.  I'm running out of time, so I thought maybe my fellow craftsters might have some ideas...

Thanks for all your help!

What about running with the book idea, and putting pictures of the horses or other animals she saw with her daddy?  Kind of preserving a memory.  Cheesy This photo could be the cover or back page.  If they see the horses all the time, maybe you could get pics of the horses and put their names on the page with their picture.

You could print it out on some printer fabric, quilt around her and her daddy and then make it into a pillow using horsey type fabric, or something that goes with her room.

Thank you so much you guys!  Both ideas are awesome!  Due to time constraints, I am in love with the pillow idea!  DUDE!  PRINTABLE FABRIC!  I am so behind the crafty times! 
Thank you so much again!

That pillow turned out SO cute!  I found your post because I too was thinking of making a fabric photo album style thing for my best friend's daughter's first bday that is a little over a month away.  I've emailed the daddy for pics of people who love her but if he drops the ball, I'm definitely going the pillow route.  SO CUTE.
