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.
Thanks for reading xx
