Happy Day


Aww! Today I have the first page for baby A's scrapbook album - the first ultrasound! It feels like forever since I've scrapped a layout and was a little unsure of even where to start but this page surprisingly came together in about an hour.

Used the March project kit from The Paper Bakery, which is full of MME Follow Your Heart and Miss Caroline goodness plus their current sketch for a jump start. Am also playing along with the current My Mind's Eye challenge to use hexagons, a favorite trend!


I just measured and hand cut a few hexies, plus cut some from patterned paper and used the chipboard ones as well.


For the border there on the right, I tried to stamp with the chipboard border and it kinda worked, even though it doesn't have the give that rubber/poly stamps do to get that smooth coverage. Still a fun washed out effect though! Loving the touch of red in this kit!

Have the most lovely weekend! ♥
