Finally! After all the ATCs and the crafts for the craft fair, I got to work on some layouts Friday night. These are the 2 that I got done. I was sooooooo happy to get back to scrapbooking as that really is my first love.
This first layout was of a picture that makes me giggle every time I see it. It's almost as if Alexis was saying, "Enough with the pictures already, Mom!". This was within the first month she was around and already showing us a bit of attitude (she is a strong-willed girl, but I prefer that than a wishy-washy one). I love the bright colors of the papers. They are from the Neon Chic paper stack by DCWV. I love bright and bold colors...I am not often someone who uses muted colors (I struggle with those). The letters and numbers are all Thickers (Lovely and Dazzle Stickers in Taffy Pink).
Here is my second layout. This one took a lot longer to do because I really struggled with what papers to match up and how to place the pictures. All in all, a major labor of love because now that it's done, I am happy with it. Whoa boy, did it ever take a lot to get it done!
These were all papers that I had in my stash. They were not labelled, so I cannot tell you where they were from. I also used some washi tape to add some "zip". Again, all the letters are Thickers (Powder, Taffy and I still have to look up the other ones). I keep looking at the picture furthest to the right and can't get over those big eyes. My little cutie! Well, she isn't so little anymore as she is quickly approaching 11 months...where did the time go???
