Layla Layout

As I've been sorting through all my scrapbooking stuff, I've come across some layouts I had planned to do 4 or 5 years ago, some started, others just put in plastic holders with pictures and papers. One series of pictures I started working on almost 5 years ago is of Layla's first professional photo shoot when she was 6 weeks old. She'll be 5 years old on July 8.


The layout you see here is nothing at all like I had envisioned back then. I didn't even use the paper I had thought was perfect for the pictures. I love this paper with the brown line drawings of flowers and the bird on a pink and white background, so I stayed with the brown and pink theme and added ribbon, a button, a bling flower and letters in her name, stickles sparkles on the bird and hearts, and used my Slice to cut the words - things I wasn't using, or weren't available, 5 years ago.

Sometimes it pays to procrastinate! I love this layout.

I love seeing your scrapping. You are very creative and have a good eye for it.

What a neat tradition "the tricycle pic".

And a beautiful snapshot of your daughter's family.

To answer your question- Yes my kids do read their bday blog post. In fact Seth couldnt wait to read his when I arrived in WY. But they dont read the blog on a daily basis.

it's funny how Layla still looks just like "her" - even at 6 weeks.

Love it Pat! I can see the stickles! Love the hearts and flowers, bird and the Slice words. It's a gorgeous layout. Won't Layla be surprised to see it!

Ditto to Sara's comment. Layla is an original, sweet little girl.
