Baby Book - pages 38 and 39

Buell's Orchard 2004

My family has been going for years to a local orchard, Buell's, for their Columbus Day activities. Hayrides, donuts, apples and fun :)
This layout is of Justin's first time.

I used Daisy D's Gypsy Harvest paper.
The layout is based on a sketch from Suzanne Powell.
I used silk leaves from Walmart ($1 a bag) as accents
'buell's' is spelled out using chipboard letters from Making Memories and Basic Grey. I inked them a purple color and then covered them with CTMH liquid glass for the shine. I used a metallic gold marker to add some highlights.
I stamped the other words using my CTMH Doodle Alphabet stamp set and purple ink.
I used two antique embellishments to accent the date and the word, 'fun'.
Add my special pictures and I love this layout!!!

Baby Book - Page 37

Baby DedicationMy sister did this layout.
This is one of the first pages we ever did in September of '04.
I've been tempted to redo the earlier ones, but this is special because she did it - back when we were very new and very bad :) It's her first page ever.

Baby Book - page 36

Page 36

This is Justin being held by some very important people in his life.
Top Left is Kevin's Dad.
Top Right is Kevin's Mom.
Center is my Grandma (Dad's side).
Bottom Left is my Grandpa (Dad's side).
Bottom Right is my Grandma (Mom's Side).
(yes, they're technically great-grandparents ... )
I wanted to highlight these photos since we don't have many pictures of them. The only person still alive that is missing is Kevin's Grandma and I have a picture of her and Justin at Christmastime.

I used some scrap paper I had from the CTMH Heritage collection.
The letters are a bronze color with scroll work. I love them, but Joann's doesn't carry them any more. If you look closely, I didn't have enough 'Rs' so I used a 'P' and drew in the leg with a metallic marker and used liquid glass to add dimension. It's an imperfect fix, but I love these letters!
