Give A Girl A ... Saturated Canary - HOP!

Hello bloggers.

I was so excited when Kellie, the owner of Give A Girl A, asked me to join her, Krista - the owner of Saturated Canary, and many other creative ladies, to bring you guys a very fun blog hop, full of inspiration and awesome blog candy.


&



I've been on a "baby" kick.  Not that I want to have another one, OH NO!!, lol...  But that I keep looking at Giovanni's baby pictures, wondering where the time has gone.  He's only 2, but has the common sense and smarts of a 4 year old.  (Every mom says that, huh?... lol).

I recently printed out some newborn photos and had been wanting to use them in a project, but didn't exactly know how.  As you know I'm a SMASH*aholic, but I wanted these special photos to be used differently.

So I got to brainstorming and came up with this 12x12, really simple layout.



It's been a while since I created a layout, [Smashing is much easier for me], but I had so much fun creating it.

I used Simple Stories "Baby Steps" 6x6 pad to cut bits and pieces for the layout, a few stickers & rub-ons from my stash, faux stitching and some wood veneers to add cute touches here and there.



I colored the new Saturated Canary "Jelly Bug" digital stamp (available in Krista's shop soon), with Copics and added her to this layout because that adorable little critter just screamed "baby mobile" to me for some reason.  It was the perfect fit!

The stamp set I used from Kellie's Shop is called "Keen As Mustard".  The sentiments helped me capture the emotion/s I wanted to express in the layout.


There's still some journaling to add under "She said", "He said", but this layout is complete and will stay hanging in my craftroom for a while, at least until mom sees it and hints how much she'd love to have it.  lol.
