Jumping for Joy

Good Morning Everyone!

When I woke up this morning, I thought this was going to be a terrific Thursday! I was going to have a few hours to myself and try to get some more work done on a layout I have been designing. Much to my surprise though, when I stepped out of my bedroom door, that good mood I was in quickly vanished. Someone (or should I say something) decided to TP my home. Not on the outside mind you...but from the bathroom, down the hallway, into the living room. Yes, you guessed it. Our little Bella (he's not so little anymore) found a roll of toilet paper and played with it...probably for most of the night. Oh the joys of being a cat owner, who's cat has a paper fetish! It didn't take too long to clean up the mess this paper loving feline created, and my sour grapes mood soon vanished.
The layouts I am sharing today are for the twin's first year album. When Nova Davenport post
on her blog a layout she'd done using CTMH's Studio J of her baby in a Johnny Jump Up, that inspired me to scrap the pictures I had of the twins in their Johnny Jump Up. Thank you Nova for the inspiration. So, I searched through all my papers, trying to decide what and how to these layouts. I wanted to keep the green, blue and yellow color theme for their first year and then I remembered purchasing My Little Yellow Bicycle's Baby Safari paper pack. I knew this would be the perfect pattern paper to go with the Johnny Jump Up photos.I took a sketch from Becky Fleck's book, Page Maps, and converted picture size to fit a 9"x9" layout.Then I have to cut down the green froggie overlay to fit a 9"x9" page. I had so much fun with these layouts! And they went together so easily. I wish all my layouts were this easy.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Thursday!
Until the next time...
Happy Scrappin'!!!
