Baby Book - pages 44 & 45

I love it when u laugh & smile
I absolutely love this layout. I had it floating around in my head for a while and it just came together so beautifully!

It took me a while to find the right paper. I had a look in mind and couldn't find the right thing! Who knew you can't find navy paper with medium sized green polka dots? So, I found this awesome blue print from My Mind's Eye at my LLS. The dark blue and green distressed-look paper is from my Close to My Heart Autumn Harvest B&T paper pack and the striped accent paper is the other side of said CTMH papers.

I came up with the sketch all by myself :) I loved these pictures so much that I wanted to really make them pop and the large prints do that.

For the title, I used Making Memories rub-on alphas, jelly-stickers from Wamart (when) and a K&Co. glitter chipboard word (laugh).

You can't see it very well in the photos, but I made circles using brads. I used several colors of blue and green.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Baby Book - pages 42 & 43

Merrily we Glide AlongJustin never really crawled - he glided. He'd much rather stand holding onto something than crawl.

This is CTMH paper, CTMH stickease stickers and a CTMH Cherish layout (slightly altered). I love how the paper has all the colors of Justin's outfits. It's not easy to find light blue and red.
The letter stickers are also CTMH, but the 'Glide' letters are Provo Craft.

Baby Book - pages 40 and 41

Time to Play
Back to posting :) Hopefully I'll have some time to do some actual scrapbooking soon and not just chase after my three kids :)

This layout is of Justin playing before he could walk. Kids are so cute at this age and so easy to photograph :)

I used Basic Grey Color Me Silly paper - retired PP.
I used my Creative Memories Cutting System to cut several circles out of black cardstock in varying sizes.
I was all excited about a Adirondack Paint Dabber in White that I had just got, so I tried to get a specific aged and rustic look on the edges of the photos and some of the paper blocks. It didn't turn out the way I wanted, but it doesn't look too bad.
The arrow journaling block is from Maya Road.

That's it for now. Check back soon because I only have a few more layouts to post from the baby book. Then I'll show you some of the really neat projects I've worked on recently :)
