Photos Galore!

Ok, so at the risk of totally over-doing it I have managed to squeeze LOTS of photos onto this layout. I had so many and I wanted to use them all! Thinking about my scrapbook as a whole, it's ok to have some busy pages and some that are more about the journey of creating a feature piece. Of course with this many photos there's not much room for embellishment, so I've kept it simple and used the colours from this week's Just Add Ink challenge as accents.

By the bye, notice the wee fingers at the side of the first photo? I was going to crop it but he was doing such a good job of 'don't touch' that I had to shout it out.

The second picture shows the hidden journalling under the main photo. Where else was I going to put it right?


Supplies used:
Colours: Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss
Others: Kiwi Kiss Grosgrain Ribbon, Jumbo Brad

Baby Thank Yous

The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is to make ANYTHING. But of course I had to have some sort of perimeters to work within so I set them for myself...

A friend of mine is pregnant and I thought it would be a neat idea to make some mini thank you cards for all the baby gifts she receives. These are made using the Love Notes (p.131 IBC) which come with their own wee envelopes. They're so cute. I wanted to experiment with matting white on white (and vanilla on vanilla). I used a touch of sponging to give it the dimension that matting in different colours usually would.


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Animal Stories (from Summer Mini - now retired), Short & Sweet ($35.95)
Colours: Going Grey, Elegant Eggplant, Kiwi Kiss, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Kraft (woah!)
Others: Non-SU! Buttons, Jumbo Eyelets, Love Notes, Linen Thread
