updating on #7

i said i hoped i'd be sore from the bench jumping i did on friday. well folks, i am. all over. and it makes me kind of happy to be this sore. it shows i did something.

and because i want this post to look pretty, here are the projects i put together for the simple stories booth at CHA this month. i made a couple of cards and a framed piece of art as well, i'll save those for another post. this first layout uses the happy day line. and no, that's not my boy, it's my friend's boy andrew. i don't have great baby pictures, that was before i started scrapbooking and i just didn't know how to take photos. but melissa has graciously supplied me with all i'll ever need, since she's a great photographer AND has twins who love me. i misted the background with clay mister huey, from the new memoir line, i love how very subtle it is. and the journaling spot is a stamp from the unity collaboration simples stories did. i stamped! i used mustard zing, i think it turned out well.

this layout i tried to channel my inner steph howell to make a fabulous bow. i think i did ok :) again, this is a photo of my friends' twins, using the baby steps line, so cute. it's not too themey and you can use it for either a boy or a girl. i even made a none baby project with it which i'll share later. the ribbon is may arts and it's gorgeous!

have a blessed sabbath day!

Those LOs are just gorgeous! I've had my eye on some of the Simple Stories stuff, but I haven't taken the plunge and bought any. Thanks for the inspiration!
