Big Brother/Little Sister

Wow, I've just been cranking the layouts out!  Practically mass production for me!  I completed these layouts in...say...3 days!  LOL!!!  Just rocking!  Actually in my defense I completed one side one day and then worked on something else another day and then did the second side last night.  So, I'd say about 6 hours! LOL!  I would never win the award for fast scrapping.  As a side note it used to irk me at crops where they would give awards away for the most pages scrapped.  I think there should have been an equal award for the least pages scrapped.  I would have been in the running for that!  I am just such a fiddler.....I love to fiddle.  Anyway, I'm thrilled when I complete something and like I said...I love the process so there you have it!
These photos were taken just after Taylor was born and David was being introduced to her.  I just love his little face here....just total "what the heck is this thing?"  I wish he could have articulated what he was thinking!  It probably was "What the heck is this thing???". 
Here we go...left side first:
And the right side:
And a couple of closeups:

I have pretty much used up all my Echo Park Little Girl papers and just have a few stickers left.  I love when I get a pack and find a use for all of it.  I still love these bright and cheerful.
I used some bakers twine from the Twinery, some buttons from Paper Trey Ink and some of that jute twine type stuff from PTI as well.  I did some of the border edgings with Fiskars punches and also cut two with my Silhouette (those on the second page).  The green cardstock was from Core'dinations.
I am really happy with the way these turned out...I love the mixes of the pattern papers and embellishments and sometimes it really is fun to just gaze at your own accomplishments, isn't it?  Sometimes we can look at something and just say...Hey, that's good!  (Well, to me anyway!)

Happy Crafting!


  1. I like the buttons & twine used. I'm starting to become a fiddler with card making & scrapbooking. I start with an idea, change, make mistakes & learn from the mistakes & continue on.

  2. Love the bright colors on your scrapbook pages. They are beautiful no matter how long it takes you to do them. I felt so overwhelmed with the scrapbooking but in other ways I miss it a lot.

  3. Cute layouts- I like the little details like the buttons and the stitching is great!!! :)Amy
