This is a layout that features my daughter within her first month of life. Yes, she was already a drama queen...we knew we were going to have some trouble on our hands! I mean, seriously, look at those expressions she is making!! This is a 12x12 layout for my daughter's First Year album. I cut the large flower out using my SCAL software and then cut the pictures out (using my Creative Memories cutting system) to fit on the petals. I cut the baby face and bow out using the Cricut cartridge "New Arrival". I used "Peachy Keen" paper doll face stamps for the baby face and proceeded to color in the eyes and tongue with markers. I used a border punch and ribbon to make the border on the bottom of the page. The extra petal of the flower will be where I journal the events involving the pictures. The title words were cut out with my SCAL software. I then stamped the words "her", "shining", and "through" using a small stamp set I purchased at Walmart for only 99 cents! They actually have several fonts to choose from and I need to pick up another one one day when I am in there. They work great and I have never had any problems with them. They are perfect for quick titles like this one. Similar sets are about 5 to 10 dollars elsewhere, so this is obviously a great deal!
I hope you enjoyed the layout! Now, go work on your next layout! Have a great evening and remember it is always homemade!
