Good Monday Everyone! How are you doing? Well, I'm happy to announce that today I finally was able to start my little cousin's album that I plan to give him on his 2nd birthday in July! I'm really excited on how it's already starting out to look. I have here a couple of pages I did today. Isn't he adorable? His name is Emiliano!
I based my layouts off the sketches that Alison Richardson (The Sketchpad) created. If you haven't checked her out, please do so. She has gorgeous sketches and such wonderful ideas! I found these two sketches to be perfect for these boy layouts. It's always so hard to do boy layouts. And I know I'm not alone out there. Getting the patterned paper and the embellies to do boy layouts can bring many stress! But thankfully "Baby Boy" scrapbook stuff isn't as hard to find as teenage boy stuff or even Men patterned paper. But again, thankfully "Baby Boy" items aren't too bad.
Here's the sketch that I used for the "First Halloween" Layout:
I love the scalloped edges on her sketch. So I went with that on my layout. I'm just so happy I got to see this sketch because when I first saw it, I knew I wanted these pictures for it! I was just hoping that I still had this patterned paper for it. Here's my take on the sketch:
Here's the second sketch that Alison created:
Again another perfect sketch. I had an odd square picture that I wasn't sure where I wanted to put it in Emiliano's album. So I thought that putting it in the front page and using this sketch to guide me would work perfectly! I'm very happy with my outcome! He looks so precious and I feel that the patterned paper that I used on my version of the sketch just made him even more "baby" (if that's even possible :oP ). Here's my take on the sketch as well:
Thanks for coming by my blog! I appreciate and enjoy your comments. :o)
