First Family Picture layout

I had a six week break from school so I tried to focus on getting some scrapbook pages done. This week I focused on Mason's baby album. Since he's one now (time flies super fast) I know I should create the pages before the memory goes away. 

This layout share is going to be submitted to two challenges. The sketch is from Stick it Down blog and the journaling prompt, which is answering the questions "What are you most proud of?" is from the Studio challenge blog

I was drawn to the sketch because it had strips of paper on the back of a single photo. I loved how that helped me use up some scraps of paper that I've accumulated from making the rest of the pages in my baby album. 

 I have a gold foil type of cardstock in my stash which I used to cut out the cursive "family" word as well as the leaf design on the left side of my photo.
I have set aside product to use for this baby album and they are all kept in a plastic Iris container so when I get a chance to work on the album, all of my pages will have the same products, making the book have a cohesive look.

 I love the prompt and I used that to journal about how proud I am of the little family and my husband and I built together.

So there you have it. I hope that you stop by the challenge blog links and find inspiration for your next paper crafting project.

Till next time,
Grace
