My grandchildren have always been my favorite subjects to scrap. And with a new granddaughter and loads of photos coming my way, you can expect to see baby layouts for a while.
The first layout is sort of a round-up of photos from little Charleigh's first week "on the outside". Not a lot of action unfortunately, since like most newborns she spent most of her time sleeping. I loved the simplicity of this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:
I used scraps from my Kaisercraft "Pitter Patter" papers and some chipboard embellishments from Crate Paper's "Little You - Girl" line. (Don't you just love that bunny?) The doilies were from Hobby Lobby and I used a Silhouette file to cut the little roses. Then of course, there are those sweet baby pics:
I re-interpreted the large photo into a series of smaller pictures. Charleigh's second and third week included more awake moments, as seen in the photos. I used the August and September kits from Citrus Twist Kits and came up with the title when I found that doll ephemera from Crate Paper's "Cute Girl" collection.
This sketch came from Let's Get Sketchy; again, I liked the simplicity.
Like many scrapbookers, I don't often show up in my own layouts. My daughter took this photo with my camera so I have no excuse. I used the August kit from Citrus Twist Kits; loving the Cute Girl ephemera pieces!
And just for variety, here's a zoo layout (also a frequent scrap subject, since my mom and I have an annual pass and visit our local zoo fairly often). This is the sketch from Citrus Twist Kits:
And here's my layout, using the September main kit and add ons from Citrus Twist Kits. I loved the red kangaroo's pose as he watched the visitors go by and stayed cool under the trees.
There are more baby photos every day; looking forward to getting some from a professional "newborn photo shoot". I'm also looking forward to Halloween photos to scrap in a few weeks (Halloween is my favorite holiday to scrap. I love the Halloween themed collections!)
Thanks for looking; have a wonderful day!
