Baby's First Food

Good Morning everyone!

As promised yesterday, I am sharing the layouts that I have completed since the middle of the month. Here we are almost to the end of the month! How are your new year's resolutions coming along? Are you staying steadfast to your resolutions? Or have you swayed? One of my new year's resolutions was to complete those half finished projects. For one reason or another, I have put them aside and planned to come back to it later. Well, many months later (probably even years), "later" has arrived and I am getting them completed and sharing with all of you.

This layout I am sharing today, I started last year right about this same time. I am working on my grandchildren's albums. And I am not working in any particular order, so I have about 30 incomplete albums. Mind boggling isn't it? Well, I can't explain how my creative juices work...I just do whatever moves me.

So, last year, Close To My Heart had this special paper pack called "Key To My Heart." The papers were absolutely yummy. I loved the swirls and flourishes and I was so afraid of cutting into the paper, that I decided not to. LOL I used the whole sheet as my foundation sheet and backed it with a piece of cardstock to give it some stability. I took a sketch from Becky Fleck's blog. And I found my title on Bethany's blog. The baby food jars is from Masterpiece Studio. I thought it coordinated nicely with the other papers. I did a print and cut of the jars with my Wishblade, which gave me my journaling (something else I need to work more on this year and future layouts). The little journaling block on the right I embossed with white embossing powder. Then printed the little poem separately and attached it. The flourishes to the right of the layout I cut on my Wishblade as well as the spoon. Then I overlapped them as I glued them down. I popped the spoon up with some mounting foam.

Now, can you see with the layouts above how washed out the layouts look? These were taken inside under normal lighting. I wasn't too pleased so I retook the photos again, outside in my "backyard studio." Look at the difference.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to the laundry room, but I'll be back here to the rubber room and share the last two layouts I've done during our "rainy season" of the year! If you like what I've done, please tell me in the comment section. I love reading all the comments you all leave.

Until next time,

Happy Scrapping!
