I loved doing this layout! My favorite part is how I created the title from four different fonts, even the dh commented on how much he liked the title (: I've had these pics for a year, which for me is a long time, so I was glad to get them committed to paper!

This was actually last weeks project from Practical Scrappers, I'm running behind (: I saw this paper and just loved the cute little moon and caterpillar! Adding buttons to them for dimension just made them even cuter. Throw a pic on there of my cutie Coop and the whole thing came together in a great way (:

I saw this Peacock Lane line in a magazine and knew I was going to have to find it! Lucy's first day of school outfit was picked to match it (: I lifted a lot of this layout directly from BoBunny's ad, but much of it is my own original ideas added to it too.

One day of our family vacation consisted of time in Baltimore, Anapolis, and Washington DC. I could spend a year working on those pictures, but decided to do one highlight from each part and then combine the rest on this collage layout. I used my white pen and circle stencils to draw the white circles. Little letters from Cosmo Cricket are used to tell the different locations.
Lucy sings "Jesus Loves Me" literally at least 1O times a day. In fact while I was making this layout she was working on her "layout" and singing it over and over. So sweet I had to do a page about it. I love how this one turned out! I used my cuttlebug to emboss some music onto the white paper circles. The Jesus Loves me title is part of the paper in the big circle. I've had that paper for 3 years, who knew it would be such a perfect fit!

I think I'm getting addicted to Kraft paper...I really am starting to love it and want it on everything (: My favorite thing about this layout is that I used up a whole bunch of letter stickers that I had forever, in fact I never thought I'd actually use them again!
This layout was based on a cover layout from Creating Keepsakes last spring. I saw it and loved the flow of it. It fit well for doing a layout about Lucy loving her big brother. She always anxiously awaited the end of the school day for him and then greeted him with a big hug. So, I being the insane scrapper, made sure to document this (:
I love the colors on this layout, they step out of my normal color scheme!
I saw this doily paper from Basic Grey and knew I wanted to use it for a baptism layout. In incorporated some BoBunny clear acrylic flourishes. The little blue hearts are a blue fabric flower that I cut up.
The title "Father Welcomes" is a hymn that is regularly sung in our church, especially on baptism days. It also is a favorite amongst the kids in our church, it seemed like a fitting title for a baptism page about Cooper being welcomed by his heavenly Father.
After a long hiatus to spend time with baby Cooper, I'm back into my scrapping! This is a layout I created after a long day of potty training, all about my little sweetie who can also be a little monster (:
This was also done for Practical Scrappers White Pen Challenge. I outlined most of the cardstock with my Sakura White Souffle Pen. I also added white to my letters.
