Sweet Baby Boy

Look at that cute little bundle of joy! His name is Josiah and he's my little 2nd cousin! I recently came across these adorable pictures of him and couldn't resist scrapping them! I love the one with him sleeping...he looks so innocent and peaceful! What a life! :-)

I incorporated a little handmade creativity for this LO. I added some color with my set of prisma color pastels which add a soft touch and also created the round embellishment out of marker paper that I painted with watercolor and embellished with some die cuts from the animal crackers kit.

I also used the letter patterned paper from the "Jack" collection as a border and decorative frame then tacked on some of the kits' chip board letters for the title with some brown thread. The pictures on the right are also stitched on by hand creating a simple border.

This little man is such a happy baby and I'm happy to have captured his smile forever!

Baby Love

I recently bought a book by Making Memories called Baby Love moments and memories. This book was a great buy! It was $20 at Michael's and filled with lots of ideas for baby gifts, cards, announcements, scrapbooking and keepsakes! The design of the book is adorable and it made my mind start turning with all the possibilities for cute baby keepsakes of all types!! I find myself flipping through it constantly! I even bring it to work with me, so that I can glance at it whenever I have a chance! I definitely recommend it if you have any baby projects in the works...(among the hundreds of other projects we all have started, but are not quite close to being finished).
Take a look at a couple of cards I was inspired to make that actually coordinate back to baby scraframes I had already made!

*The majority of the papers and embellishments used on the above projects are from the Animal Crackers collection by Making Memories.*
