Poking Fun

Another old set of pictures of my daughter.  In these, she's badgering our rat terrier, Stryder, while he patiently tolerates her.

I purposely kept this layout simple, just a little pattern paper and a 3 layered flower.  The pictures are a little dark and I used lighter papers to make the white and pink in the photos pop.

Here is the Let's Scrap sketch I used:

Riding High...

I found these adorable pictures of my now 6 year old daughter when she was 13 months old and just had to scrap them.

(Sorry for the poor picture, it's late)

The journaling says "Chloe loves her ride-on toy and had a blast showing off for Mimi & Pappy."

The title says, "Riding High."

5 Months - Baby Names

This layout is about my 5th month experience with the twins' movements and the names that we considered and the ones we ended up choosing:

I really enjoyed creating the heart banners and doing the stitching.

4 Months and TWO Girls!

This layout is of my 4 month picture with the cravings I've experienced and the ultrasounds that showed us we are expecting two girls!!

I had so much fun with this layout, particularly finding a way to make the two pages coordinate even though they have different patterned papers.  The hardest part was stitching through 4 layers of paper.

First Trimester and 12 Week Ultrasound

This two page layout is of my first trimester experiences and the 12 week ultrasound of the twins.

The picture is a tad blurry because I took it inside in the evening (bad lighting).

My favorite part of this layout is doing the butterfly trails with pen stitching.  I hand made the background shape for both sides because I did not have a stencil that size.

First Picture...TWINS!

This is page 2 of my pregnancy album and is my twins' first picture!

I printed the scripture with my computer onto the card stock and used stickers for the bottom title.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the borders.

Baby on Board

After a long hiatus due to moving our whole family, I finally am settled enough to jump back into my scrapbooking!

This page is the title page for my 8x8 pregnancy scrapbook, chronicling my current pregnancy with TWINS!

I created the paper pieced pregnant form from a sketch that I drew:

of a chipboard shape I saw online.

I used the 1-30-13 Let's Scrap sketch:

I liked the large images dominating one side with the smaller blocks on the other.
