This layout is actually for K's scrapbook. She absolutely had to help feed him so we got some shots of that. The patterned paper is from a stack (of course I can't remember which one since I separated them long ago) and the solids are from DCWV stacks. Since the background looked a bit grungy, I sanded each of the strips of cardstock, as well as the journalling spot, and I love the look. I used my new border punch for the big scallops - love that punch!
I was looking through the gallery at Club CK the other day. You can do a search by number of photos and I love that! It helps me so much to be able to look through the layouts that have the same number of pictures that I have to work with. I found a layout that I loved and I used it as inspiration. This is what I came up with:
These are my two favourite pictures of A when he had solids for the first time. I just think they're too cute! I wanted to record the details on one of the layouts and this design allowed for that. I never write directly on my layout but I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not sure that I like it so I still may put down a block of solid cardstock and journal on to it.
Here's my friend, Devra's, layout that I scraplifted:
I love this kit from My Mind's Eye. It's the Abbey Road "Stomp" kit and it is just too cute!
I love all the pictures, of course, but the top left one is a favourite because I love seeing A's chubby little foot and his toes all curled up! So, I had to direct attention to that pic. :)
I put the small circles in the top right corner and did a tiny bit of stitching. I wanted something there, but I wanted it to be subtle so this worked for what I wanted to accomplish.
I hadn't yet included the date on any of the layouts, so I added this little tag with the exact date A had his first solids.
