Hello There

Happy Tuesday!! :) Today is another crazy day here at my house, I swear, with all the activities the girls already have in pre-K and kindergarten, I am scared to see what our lives are going to be like as they get older! Yikes!! Does it ever slow down?? lol.

I know I had promised some photos from the shower, but wouldn't you know it, that my camera sat there neglected most of the day. A friend did snap a few for me, so once I go through those I promise I'll get some up!! Hard to believe that we are at 6 1/2 weeks until we meet our little man!! :)


Speaking of the little guy, I have the first layout I have made for him, to share with you today. I had a picture in my mind of how I wanted this layout to go, didn't really end up looking the way I had planned, and I can't decide 100% if I like it or not. So, here it is, you guys let me know what you think! :)

 
 
I used mainly the "Nostalgia" line by MME on this one, with a little bit of Studio Calico "Hey Day" thrown in. I loved these colors and thought the tones were beautiful for the look I was going for. I'm thinking I might need to cover that piece on the envelope with another pattern...didn't think about it at the time, since it was on the inside of the envelope...hmmmm I'll have to do something about that I think! :)
 
Hope you all are having a fabulous week!! :)
 
Take time today to create something you love!

What a great layout! I love all the extra photos in the vellum envelope!

Oh it's perfect! I love the envelope with extra photos. And the sequins are the perfect, minimal, whimsical touch for a boy baby page.

It is SO SWEET, Amanda!! You already look like a pro at little boy layouts! :) I love the way you used the vellum envelope and the confetti look you created with the sequins! Can't wait to see pics of your new little guy and the layouts you create to go along with them!! :)

This is adorable, Amanda! Isn't it fun to finally be able to make boy layouts? I remember my first one of Weston was his ultrasound pic too. I can't wait to see what else you create for him!
