Baby's First Birthday

.
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.

Don't You Ever Grow Up

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.

Another Back to School Layout

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!

Back to School Layout



 

 Lexi started the second grade last week. I used the Scholastic paper pack from Close to My Heart to do my layout. The owl and back to school saying is a cutting file from Bear Hugs.
