April: Making Memories, "Animal Crackers"

just a fun little lo commemorating our birth class reunion after the birth of my first son...all those little cherubs are big 3-year olds now!!! we're still very close friends with Angelina, so looking back on these is pretty cool. i popped up the patterned paper block with dimensional tape to try to enhance the cut-outs. also used that same paper as a stencil for some smudgey little stars on the outer edge. hand-cut title letters from the insert that comes with the Making Memories "jack" border & tag stickers... (come on...with a pattern this cute on the "trash" you know they were thinking we'd be using it up, don't you think?!?!) very cute papers for babies (and other creative topics i'm not thinking of at the moment)!!!

this next lo came together faster than either of the other two, and i think i like it best!! using patterned paper (yes, a WHOLE piece, Shawna...look at me go!! ;-) ) as the background paper was kind of new for me...popped up the picture again for some interest and to lift the photo up and away from all the layering action around the edges a bit... letters are also Making Memories...LOVE these for their versatility...thesaurus page highlighting "precious", and other random bits. this is a cool touchy feely page b/c those letters on the background paper are FUZZY!
Pin It!

I like how you used the patterned paper but still kept your own distinct style in the layouts. The baby pictures are so precious!
