Baby Layout

Hi friends,
I wanted to share a layout I made for a friend. She's part of a group of ladies I crop with & she asked us if we would make a (baby boy) layout for her baby album in lieu of gifts. I thought that would be a great idea- that way all she would need to do is pop her baby pictures on the mats & her baby book would be done!
Here's the double page layout I created for her:
First, I have to say that this is something that looks waaaaaaay better in person. I didn't take good pics of it as I was rushing out the door :( I added a title along the right border after I took the pic :(

Here's a closer peek at the left page:
I paper pleated along the top. I layered, layered, layered patterned papers. (one of my fav things to do- even on scrapbook pages ;) The mat on this page is ready for a 5x7 pic. I added faux stitching along the edges.

Here's the page on the right: again sorry for the hideous pic :(
I added more paper pleating along the edge. This page is ready for two 4x6 pics.

All the papers for this layout were from My Minds Eye Quite Contrary Collection which I have LOVED using on several projects. I'll be so sad when this collection is gone :(

Thanks so much for peeking today. HS is going pretty well. It's been crazy busy getting used to new routines/procedures that come with moving to a new school, but hopefully by the end of the month I'll feel more comfortable in my new surroundings & my life as a HS teacher. I am LOVING that prep period, though!!! It really helps a lot :)

Hasta Luego!
