I really like this LO, I did it for Shawna's Sunday Scrap Challenge, we had to do a LO with a white background, then I used some of the ribbons and elements from Ribbit Kisses. The fonts in my opinion look really cool, I used two different ones, Dream Orphans and Monika. The quote is from Peter Pan. I love the expression on her face, it definetly looks like she is going to jump right out of the picture, and she has such a cute smile! What a beautiful little baby she is!

This is a LO that I did for a challenge on W2W, the picture was taken a year ago on Easter, but its a beautiful picture none-the-less. The challenge was to do a LO of you holding your baby, and the theme was I am Blessed. I am using Sweet Aria by Lauren Grier and the font is called Karen's Calligraphy. Lauren has a lot of beautiful elements in her kit, so I wanted to try and use as many of them as I could on this scrap. I love the warmth of the colours in her kit, so soft and feminine. It's hard to believe that this will be her second Easter. I've already gone Easter shopping for her, so she is getting 2 CDs, an Easter Bunny, a basket and some eggs which will be hidden and a nice card. I can't wait to do the Easter Egg Hunt with her, that'll be so much fun! And of course, to do the LO of her Easter!

More musings

Isn't this just the sweetest LO you've ever seen? This was a tutorial I found online, it just fits so perfectly with the picture! I am very impressed with the results! I did this for a challenge on Elemental Scraps, we had to come up with a LO that had the theme of Dream in it, and this is the one that I came up with. Lydia was so young back then, its hard to imagine how much she has grown between when the picture was taken and now. Although, she still sleeps with her thumb in her mouth for comfort! I love this picture of her, and the effect with the clouds, its seriously just too sweet for words!

Here is another LO that I finished today. I scraplifted this one from one that Melanie did on Elemental Scraps, its of my brother and his girlfriend. I really like the kit, I am using Lauren Grier's Sweet Aria for this Layout, and I think that it fits just perfectly with it! And I love the font as well, its called Scriptina.

I had a good day today, I was teaching, and I am going to be teaching again tomorrow as well. Hopefully I'll get to do some more LOs over the weekend, but we'll have to see.

A favorite of mine.

This is one of my favorite LOs of Lydia. I love the effect I did on the photo, bringing out the purple in the dress. She just looks so sweet and so serene in that picture, looking down, almost as though she was looking out of the picture and on to the LO itself. The kit was from Two Peas in a Bucket, their February 2005 Freebie kit. This is one of my earlier LOs, but I love it!

I love Free Spirit!

I love Lauren Grier's Kit Free Spirit! Its so much fun to use! Here is a LO that I completed today, its Lydia right after she had a bath when she was about a month old. I titled it Tubby Time, because I always tell Lydia that its Tubby Time when its time for her bath!

Here are a couple more that I made as well using Lauren's Kit. It really is a lot of fun to use!

I didn't get called to work today, so I was able to stay home with Lydia, which is always a lot of fun! You should have seen her today! We were playing with her Fisher-Price Stride to Ride walker which has a shape sorter on the front end. Well, she can put all her shapes in the proper holes so that they fit! We were also playing with her Pooh Bear Mega Blocks set and she can put those together and take them apart! Lydia is getting smarter by the day!

Not too sure if I will get called to work tomorrow or not, but I almost hope I don't, so I can stay home again!

Some of my LOs!

I've been working on scrapbooking and this is one of my newest images. I love the kit, its from Lauren's Forget Me Not. I dressed Lydia up in this outfit just so that I could take her picture. Here is another one that I did from the same day with the same kit.

Here is a two page LO that I really like! I used Lauren's All About Baby Purple kit! It was my first time doing a two page LO, and I have to say that I am really rather proud of it!

Its hard to believe how tiny she was when she was a newborn! It's hard to believe that I've been a Mom for over a year now! I have no idea where the time went, and how quickly Lydia actually grew up. I've been working on a baby book for Lydia with the LOs that I've been doing. I hope to chronicle her first two or three years of life. LOL, if this keeps up, I'll have Lydia scrapbooked all the way through high school! Here are some more LOs. I'll be posting them as I do them, but here are some that I've already done, either for challenges on W2W or Elemental Scraps.

This one I did for Week 1 of Deanna's Baby Book Challenge on W2W. The kit I used was Serenity, by Amanda Rockwell. I love the beautiful warm tones of this kit.

This is Week 2 of the Baby Challenge. I am using Shabby Mommy kit from Shabby Princess. I don't really have any pregnancy pictures of me, so I had to rack my brains what to come up with for this LO and decided to do a LO of getting my room ready for Lydia. If you thought that week 2 was racking my brains, you should see week 3! It's even worse! Having covered my pregnancy pictures, and pictures of the baby's room, I had only one option left. Here it is, you can see for yourself.

Yes, you guessed it! I did a snowstorm! LOL! I am using Amanda's Serenity kit again for this one as well.

Week 4 was her Birth, which was the two page LO that I did above. Here is week 5, Lydia at one month old. I am using Lauren Grier's Sweet Aria, a truly beautiful kit!

Nice, isn't it?

I have to say though, that I am the proudest of my newest LO, which I did yesturday for Amber's Midnight Crop on Elemental Scraps. It turned out beautifully, I used Amanda Rockwell's Bliss, which I love! Beautiful colours, I love purples and blues.
