The Paper Girls Challenge #16: Baby

The Challenge this time at the Paper Girls Challenge blog is make a page or project about someone/ something you consider to be your baby. Well here is another picture of Elliott when he was just two months old. Since I found this file of pictures I just had to use another one for this challenge. I remember taking this picture specifically with his little elephant toy that he loved so I could look at it and remember how happy he got when he played with it.

I used papers from a Studio Calico monthly kit from last October. I thought it would be appropriate to use up some of the stuff that I've been hoarding for over a year! I love the soft colors - even though I don't usually use them often. I did have to throw in some bright accents here and there. I thought it would be fun to use a Sassafras Lass journal card that just happened to have a 2 on it and an elephant to show his age at the time. One more thing to note is that my alpha didn't show up very well so I used a metallic gel pen and traced around the letters to bring them out more.

Make sure to head on over to the Paper Girls blog to see the other projects and to link up your own creation!

soooo cute!!! Love that sweet photo and your layout! I hope you have a great week. Certainly your choice .. but you may get more comments if you turn off your security. I've never used it on my blog. I have the comments sent to my email, and I can easily review them there and delete unwanted comments. Honestly .... I have had very few I have had to delete over the last few years. This is the third blog I've come to today with the security ... and for some reason I often don't get the word correct and have to do it more than once. Hope that helps and have a great week!
