Taylor and Mommy

Here is a layout I did of my daughter holding her baby (Taylor) for the very first time.  She was just a minute or two fortunate I was to be in the delivery room so that I could snap this photo and preserve this memory. 
And you may not be able to tell from this photo of the layout but I just love that my daughter's mouth is pursed into a "shhhhhh" as she is trying to comfort her baby girl from the trauma of being born into this great big world! :)

I used some Paper Studio paper I had on hand and some Color Core'dinations cardstock.  I also used a new toy...the Creative Memories Border Maker System for the scalloped edging.  I love border punches and Creative Memories has come up with a foolproof method for getting that border PERFECT!

Here is a look at the border system:

Very cool tool!

I also cut the word "Tiny" out with my Cameo and that image came from the Silhouette Store.  The journaling tags were done with a couple of Spellbinder dies.  I used some white cotton thread and used a Bic Marker to make the thread look like baker's twine.  I tied the twine through a Close to My Heart button and wrapped some around the large photo and was done!  All done in under 3 hours! LOL!  OK...this one was pretty quickly done but I am NOT a fast scrapper! 

Hope you all have time for some crafting today!


  1. Beautiful layout. You always have the most amazing pictures- and how awesome that you were there for her birth...amazing! :)Amy

  2. There you go again as the gadget queen with the new border system. Especially like the scalloped edging.
