This layout is in Sophia's 1st year album and features her birth picture, one of me holding her shortly after and another of her and her twin. I really love the color combination with these photos, I feel like it really makes them pop.

I used this Let's Scrap sketch as an inspiration. I really liked the blocks behind the photos and chose to do that on a smaller scale as mats behind my photos. Because my layout is an 8x8, I had a little less room to work with, but I flipped the sketch pages to work with my photos.
I used a similar format for Olivia's album with the similar pictures, but chose to skip the blocks and go with something girly and elegant for the mats instead.
And here is my take on it, recording the the first day (and the professional photos taken) as well as pictures of how tiny my sweet Olivia was that first week! Olivia's album is very elegantly arranged, so this sketch matched perfectly.

My flash takes away a little from it, but I really love the result. Because this album is an 8x8, it's a lot harder to fit in extra elements, so I try to put all of the focus on the photos.
