Two more ...

Well I these lo's were done over a couple of days but I finally managed them. First of all I decided to do the sketch challenge on Sarah's blog I used the earth love papers from the Scrapagogo kit along with a couple of the other elements too. This picture was the first picture of the 3 of us taken in the recovery suite at the hospital. Emily was about 50minutes old when this was taken.
This other lo was a team sketch challenge and to also use 2 colours and a mix of alphas in the title. I thought these photos my sister took came out quite well and i wanted to relfect the love i have for my new baby. Emily was 5 days old whent hese photos were taken. I have used the MME be loved papers for this lo.
Well thats all for now. I need to think about what I want to scrapbook next. I have had lots of crafty shopping this week I am waiting for a couple of online orders. My new passion at the moment is thickers and journaling tags. I have ordered about 5 sets of thickers and loads of tags from elles studio direct in the US they are cheaping including postage than buying them here - not that many people sell them here. Hopefully I will use some more of the photos I have taken and new papers soon. My temporary box of papers is now full too so i need to get using it all!

My first Layouts with Emily

Well our gorgeous daughter arrived on 20th October and this week I have had my first opportunity to make some scrapbook layouts of all the lovely photos that I have taken of her. There has been the cc on uks this week so 3 of my lo's were inspired by that.

This first lo has been made using the american crafts papers. It was also the cc precrop challenge to scrapbook about home and whats important about home or what makes home. Home for us has really changed since Emily arrived and its so much nicer having a baby around the house.
This second lo was inspired by the weekly challenge on uks. It was to do something mini themed - so i chose minnie! This gorgeous outfit was sent by Amanda and I had already taken the photos so I couldn't resist using them.
This third lo has been made using the crate - bliss papers. It was a cc challenge to scrap about something important in my life. Of course this would be my husband and daughter. I love the B&W photo in this lo as I think it makes it.

The last lo is another cc challenge to scrapbook a journey. This was Emily's first car journey - the one home from Hospital. I have used Abbey Road papers.

Well thats all for this week. Its not quite so easy scrapbooking with a baby around but I wouldn't change her for the world and I am just pleased that I have been able to scrapbook some of our first photos. Hope to do some more this week.
