A Few Pages

It took me over a week, but I have been able to squeeze a bit of scrappy time in here & there and actually came up with three layouts!

The first is for The Paper Bakery using the provided sketch
I flipped it and came up with this...
I used photos taken the day we took Paolina home from the hospital. She is sooo tiny and my hair is sooo short! I finally used some hoarded Green at Heart paper & cardstock stickers, which were perfect for the colors in all our clothes.

I also did two layouts for challenges at Colorful Creations...
I used some more photos of Paolina as a newborn. It's amazing to look back at how tiny babies are when they are first born, especially after you get used to them being preschoolers (and older)! The challenge for this layout is to use Circles, Flowers and Butterflies.

For both Paolina and Santiago I have four whole albums for each of their first years of life...I find there are just so many "firsts" that first year that it's impossible to get them all into one album. This double page will be the second to last to complete Album #1 of Paolina's first year. The photos are of my mom holding Paolina the day she was born. My parents didn't get to meet Santiago for the first time until he was 5 weeks old, so I know this was an especially meaningful moment for "grandma". The challenge for this layout is to use layering and buttons. I am also submitting it into a challenge at the Use Your Words Challenge Blog. I'm a hot mess when it comes to journaling & titles so it helps to find challenges that give me prompts in that area. Their August 1st challenge is to use the word "moment".

Thanks for looking...hope to squeeze more time in this summer and maybe get some pages done for Santiago's albums...
