Sometimes it's the smallest things.....

And here is the calendar layout I did to go inside the album. (previous post) It was compiled along with twelve others as well as the title page and final page that were submitted by a fantastic group of scrapbookers. See previous post for the album and more details.
You may notice that my stitching is incomplete. I knew I was not going to be able to finish it before the sun went down and it was my only chance to photograph the layout - oh well! I wanted to keep the layout simple to focus on the photo of this cutie, but I think the stitching was just what it needed.

The blank calendar is meant to make recording of special moments and "firsts" easy for the new Mom.
I loved working with these Simple Stories papers again! I love how they have all those fabulous little quotes, words and images. So much fun to play with!!! I used a combination of 12x12 papers and the 6x6 paper pad.

Also, those who know me well know that I love Winnie The Pooh, so when I saw this quote included in the papers, I just had to use is somewhere on the layout.

Trying to make it a quick post for tonight. I am freezing cold and my warm bed is calling my name despite the fact that I was really hoping to play in my scrap room tonight! The snowboarding went quite well today - I actually made my first real "turn" without embarassing myself. I did; however, have a really good "wipe out" following the third or fourth attempt at said turn. I called it a day after that! Will likely have a large bruise to show for it by tomorrow night, lol! We will be back at it again Sunday, but this time on skis!!! The good thing is it is warming up. Only -12 currently with snow in the forecast!

  6. Gorgeous layout! I'm not even sure I got to see it finished! Will have to ask Donna for a peek. I'm so glad that things are going well at the ski hill. Thanks for the chat tonight...didn't mean to go on so long, but it definitely made me feel better to get it all out. Thanks for that. :)


  7. I love this layout! It really shows off my little man. Not only do I love the stitching, but the buttons work out very well on this page as well. The quotes are a fabulous touch.


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
