Baby Face

Hi there! Welcome back to my Rubber Room...

I just completed the layouts for this month's workshop. This month we are using CTMH's Emporium paper pack along with CTMH's "Connections" stamp set. I used the instructions CTMH gave for their Workshop on the Go, but changed it just a tiny bit. These pictures I have showcasing in the layouts are of my twin grandsons, Benny and Jaden. Their first year album is a 9x9 size. So, all I did was reduce all the measurements to accommodate a 9x9 layout. Also, when I was placing my order, I needed to order enough pewter brads for all the gals in the workshop. Only problem is I forgot to include myself in that number. So I improvised and used some prima flowers and itty bitty brads instead. I love the scallop edge on the layouts using ink and a brayer...just watch...I'll be using that technique again!

Now, when I do one layout for one of the twins, I simply have to do another. So, with these layouts, the same goes. The first two layouts are of Benny....these next two layouts are of Jaden. Same layout, just different pictures.

Now, the title "You've got the cutest little baby face" came from a blog that I subscribe to. This gal Bethany is so creative. What she can do with a saying a fonts...its remarkable. She saves her work as a png file. Well, I have Adobe Illustrator on my computer and have no idea how to use it. Well, I decided, Sunday morning, to give it a try. I clicked and clicked and clicked some more. And the title of my layout is what I changed. Thank you Bethany for giving us a great foundation to create some awesome titles and sayings. Bethany's blog is http://elegantwordart2.blogspot.com/. She has loads on there, so happy browsing.
That's it for today. I need to do some major housework with the rest of my day. The twins are coming home tonight, and I do like to start off the time they are here with a clean and tidy house. Its not always that way, when they leave on Sunday morning...but at least we can start off the time right.
So, until next time.....
Happy Scrappin'!
Inky Hugs,
Leanne
