Here is my project:
I found this sketch on Pinterest & orginally from (
Let me get to the details of my layout! I was born in the 70s so I decided to do a layout of one of my baby pictures. I've included a few close-ups so you can see the different elements. The paper is Recollections Pink Paisley Open Stock Paper that I found at Michaels. The "say cheese" and "always on the go" stickers are from Momenta ATD Super Sticker Pack- the baby sheet- that I found at TJ Maxx. The blue strip is a piece of paper that I used from a lady at my crop night at church= where I made this layout. The pink photo mat is Recollections Butterfly Wings 4x6 paper, also found at Michaels. The bottle is a small Sizzix die that I also used at the crop. I glued the little green piece in to give it a little color. I'll get to the picture in my journaling. The pink/red strip under the pic is Scotch Expressions Washi tape found at Walgreens. The green strip is from my stash- Bazzill Open Card Stock found at Michaels. The pink button is an 3D embelishment sticker from a set found at Michaels. I love shopping at Michaels, can't you tell! :) The journaling semicircle is from Best Occasions Jewel Punchout Pack. I wrote that this picture is of me at 7 months old in the walker and Chris Smith (one of my first friends, but I don't remember him).
this is a close-up of the title
this is a close-up of the bottle and picture
  I had another crop tonight at my church and will be posting another baby layout that I made tonight soon. I hope you will come back to see it! Thanks for looking!
