This layout I used Sketchy Thursday 10-20 sketch. Im excited that I actually got a layout done in time to submitt for a challange. I'm usually a week behind. Easter was Baby T's first major holiday. Being a first time mom I was so excited to dress him up, I had no idea he would be less than impressed. This is the first time that I used solid white card stock as the background. I really like how it turned out and will be using this technique again.

The journaling forms an x in around the pictures. My friend Jen was sweet and crafted me the basket using her Cricut.

This is one of my favorite layouts so far.

An afternoon of Scrapping

I feel pretty accomplished after this afternoons scrapping session with my friend Jen. We each got 3 layouts done. Not to bad considering we had a 7 month old baby and a cat to entertain the whole time. I'm starting to love scrapping challenges and following scrapping blogs. My pages are so much better now that I have some inspiration. I still need to do some journaling on the the 3rd layout so I will post that later.
More of my beautiful baby boy:

 These Pictures are from he newborn photo shoot. I used the journaling to make note of the special items in the pictures. Such as the hat that I knitted while I was still pregnant and the plaid outfit that was his dad's when he was a baby. This layout is based on Let's Scrap 10.12.11 sketch.

My next layout is also from Lets Scrap, 4.6.11 sketch. Jen also used this sketch today, great minds think a like. These photos are from birth to 1 month old. Its fun to look back and see how much my peanut has grown since then.

Hopefully my photography skills will get better so I have nicer pictures of my pages. Thanks for taking a look.

1st day home

Slow and steady is the pace for working on all of these baby pages. This layout is based on Sketches in Thyme 9/15 layout. This page has two parts, the car ride home from the hospital and our first moments at home. I also submitted this page in ScrapFit Challange #53 which is to have journaling boarder your photos.

4 Generations

The main inspiration for this page is the four generation picture. I used the9/29 Sketchy Thursday Layout. I love being able to use bright colors and patterns. I also had a lot of fun using the chip board embellishments for the first time. All the retro toys were perfect for this page.

For the colorful squares around the pictures I layered strips of patterend paper.
