Baby Face & I See What You See - New Layouts

Another week has come and gone, how do I get time to slow down? Tonight I had a chance to scrap and completed two different pages that I plan to be across from each other in Maddie's album.  Here is the photo of both of them together.

For the left side, I used the sketch from Scrap Africa challenge #17.  I matched the sketch almost exactly although I added a couple more embellishments.

I also played along with the MME and JBS Mercantile recipe challenge over at Jenni Bowlin Studio.  The recipe challenge is as follows:

Recipe Challenge:
1. Combine at least two MME products to create a unique handmade embellishment - I used 4 MME products to create my handmade arrow embellishment. I used MME Stella and Rose paper, MME twine; MME decorative compass brad and MME Stella and Rose trinket heart.
2. Focus on the journaling in a creative way - I journaled by repeating the same words over and over to represent the action Maddie was learning in these photos, to lift her head!
3. Get painterly! - I painted the edges of all the photos.

Here are a few close up photos of my layout:

For the right side, I used a sketch from Scrap Your Story - challenge #11

I also played along with Scrappy Friends - Scrappin N Happy May challenge.  This is a recipe challenge that requires the use of lots of layers, use at least one stamp and include stars.  I layered everything on this page from papers, to photos, to ribbon, to brads, to a felt border.  I also added red heart stickers and stamped my title with CTMH stamps.

Here are a couple of close up photos of my layout:

Materials Used:  paper - MME; ink - CTMH; arrow - Scenic Route; paint - Making Memories; twine - MME; decorative brads - MME; banner stickers - Jenni Bowlin; star stickers - Jenni Bowlin; journaling sticker - Jenni Bowlin; ribbon - MME; felt border - Queen & Co.; metal embellishment heart - MME; date sticker - Jenni Bowlin; letter stickers - unknown.

Thanks for visiting my little blog!
