I've had a ball going through photos of the girls that we take every month and am slowly getting caught up on their month-by-month layouts. The colors in Crate Paper's "Pink Plum" collection matched the girls' outfits perfectly in their 8 month photos. I swear Crate Paper got their inspiration from The Children's Place for this collection. :) I adored the girls' little brown and cream polka dot berets. They didn't exactly like to keep them on very long but were so cute anyway. I'm planning on doing a layout just of Lily (the upper left photo) because her baby blues are just gorgeous in this photo.
I kept my design fairly simple by using a grid and created a border for the layout with patterned paper and machine stitching.
I cut a strip from one of the patterned papers to create border across my layout and accented the designs with pearls. I layered journaling stickers matted by patterned paper that I trimmed with pinking shears for my journaling block.
Finally, I highlighted the "8" in my title with a Crate Paper sticker and machine stitched across the "months."
We're cleaning like mad this weekend but I'm hoping to fit a little scrap time in tonight and maybe Sunday afternoon. I got the May Midnight Rooster kit in the mail and hope to work on some layouts for the big launch. You will LOVE this first kit! I got the add-on kit too and it's fabulous! Both kits are full of exclusive items including stamps and fabric. Yum!
I might be back later this weekend as I'll have a new layout kit up for sale at The Scrappy Gourmet. See you then!
