I am going to a baby's first birthday party today and needed a card. I went through the many chilhood stamps that I have and used "First Steps" and "Childhood" both from CTMH. The pieces of the train and cloud are popped up and buttons are used for the wheels. I hope the parents like it.
Lexi is at that age where she is so little and cute but wants so badly to grow up. I know there will be a day when she won't be interested in spending time with me. There will be girlfriends and boyfriends and so many other things that take her away from me. When I heard the song by Taylor Swift called "Never Grow Up," it brought tears to my eyes because they grow up so fast. I decided to incorporate that song into my layout. I used the Dakota paper pack from CTMH.
I am loving this Scholastic paper pack from Close to My Heart. At first, I wasn't too sure about the dark colors. I was thinking more along the lines of pink and red to match Lexi's dress. But, the contrast of the darkers colors makes her dress pop. Love it!
