THE BABY LAYOUTS....

......for my niece's album, that is. You may remember I mentioned that mum and dad had brought my niece's baby pics with them, so I have been scanning and printing in my spare moments..and even got a few LOs completed over the weekend.


I used this 'Starting Point' from SHIMELLE


 scrapbooking starting point

and came up with this


and then, using this sketch from SKETCHABILITIES

Sketchabilities


came up with this one


I have left the journalling blank once again, but will be able to fill it in soon, as the Birthday Girl is having a pre-birthday, post-exam break here in just a couple of weeks time....beds are going to be in short supply here by the end of the month!


Thank you all for your supportive messages after STORYTELLING SUNDAY... as SIAN commented, 'what a wonderful bunch of people scrapbookers are'...to that I add bloggers too!

Thanks for dropping by!
take care of you
Alison xx

  7. By the results, it looks like you are having a wonderful time with these photos. And I couldn't agree with you more about grandparents and grandchildren being gifts to one another-that was certainly the case with my parents and my youngest sister's children. Mom and Dad were as good as a second set of parents and the grandkids added a lot of joy and (hectic) activity to their lives.
