Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend. I had a busy day yesterday Christmas shopping with my two oldest kiddos and my granddaughter, and then we came home and decorated a gingerbread house. We had such a fun day yesterday and now today we are expecting some sort of wintery weather. We shall wait and see what we get - if anything!
It is the middle of the month and that means it's time for a new sketch at Sketch N Scrap today. Heather has created a fun 3-photo sketch for us to play with:
I have been making a few Christmas layouts lately and decided to take a break from those and do something a little different. I am definitely lacking in layouts of Matthew when he was a baby so I decided to pull out a couple of photos and use this sketch for those.
I have used Echo Park's 'Hello Baby Boy' collection for this layout. I know I still have several photos of both boys that I still need to scrap and when I saw this collection I couldn't resist it. It has such cute patterns and the colors are so fun for baby boys.
I only had two photos of Matthew in his crib after a nap and one of the 4x4 cut apart cards in this collection was a great substitute for the third photo. The journaling on this reads - "Maybe it's because Matthew was our second baby. Maybe it's because we had tried for a while and pretty much given up on having another baby. Maybe it's because Abby was such a great big sister and a lot of help. Whatever the case may be - Matthew has always been the sweetest and happiest baby. He truly is our "Gift from God" and brings so much joy to all of us. Photos - August 1998 Journaling - December 2019"
Here are a couple of close-ups:
When I saw the little squirrel sticker on the sticker sheet of this collection, I knew I would have to add it somewhere. When Matthew got old enough to really start moving around his grandpa would call him his little grey squirrel.
It was nice to take a break from all of the holiday layouts and cards and do a baby layout. And it feels good to have a layout of Matthew as a baby done!
Head on over to Sketch N Scrap to see the wonderful layouts from the rest of the design team. I can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I will be back soon with another project to share with you!
