I have been making lots of layouts for my latest granddaughters album but today I decided to make this double page layout for my own album. I was inspired by the March double page sketch at
"LET'S SCRAP SKETCHES"
It was perfect for the first 5 weeks of Elle's life. On the left hand side, the picture in the circle she was 2 days old and this is when she came home from hospital, the vertical picture is here week 1 picture and then weeks 2 through 5 are all number on the right hand side.
I am also going to enter this layout in the new challenge just announced today #334 at
"LASTING MEMORIES LAYOUT CHALLENGES"
The new challenge is to 'Include a Banner' with the bonus prompt if you wanted to use it was to make a birthday layout. Well, this is kind of that with weekly birthdays as that is all Elle has celectrateb so far. I have that across the bottom of the both pages where I have the mini alphas on them spelling out I Am Growing. And she really is, I need to get back and visit for some more cuddles soon.
I love being able to combine challenges, but more importantly I love that I know that this great double page to keep for my own album.
I used all papers from the Baby Girl Mamby stack of papers. My title I made from misc. stickers that I matted and but on a matted pink card stock. I also double matted the vertical picture and added ink to all the edges of my papers. The mini alphas are from October Afternoon. My go to letters when not using Thickers.
Here are the links to the challenges and the sketch below them.
