My Sweet Baby....

I have a couple stacks of pictures that I want to get onto a layout. Some with stories that need to be told, and some just because I love them. I really need to organize them, but let's not go there today :)

When I saw this kit from My Creative Scrapbook kit club, I immediately thought of these sweet baby pictures that were in this stack of photos. I couldn't really think of any stories or journaling that I wanted to have with this layout, so my focus was just on creating a sweet layout for these sweet photos. Each month there is a sketch provided as well, so I decided to use the sketch for this layout as well.

I stayed pretty close to the sketch, but added my twist on the layout. That is the beauty of can follow it exactly, or use it as a jumping off point and then tweaking it to make it your own.

The black gingham paper is one of my favorite prints. I didn't want to overwhelm the layout and thought that the thin strip added a sweet touch and helped to balance out the page.

The butterfly paper is one of my favorite papers of all time. I have enjoyed sprinkling these butterflies on all of my layouts with this month's kit. I added some machine stitching around the edge of the pink patterned paper as well, because that's one of the things that I love to do on my pages.

I have a process video if you'd like to take a peek at my process.
