Baby Book Countdown

Well my maternity leave is coming to a close.  I have two months left to go and am now frantically trying to finish my eldest son's baby book.  He's now 4 by the way.  ; )  I would guess the book is about 60-70% complete, but I would LOVE to get it finished before I go back to work.  Plus, when I started my mat leave I told my husband I was definitely going to finish the baby book!!  Haha!

Anyway, I've been busy scrapping lately and thought I would share some of the recent layouts I've done for my son's baby book!  Here we go:

This first one is highlighting one of my favourite pictures of my son.  I used papers from the Studio Calico Roller Rink kit, Fiskars cloud punch, twine, Studio Calico wood veneer stars and the title...I from Recollections.  Oh!..I also sprayed some Mister Huey's in powder blue on the cardstock.

The next one has some of my favourite photos from when my dog, Sally, used to sleep beside my son.  She was such a little Mommy to him.  This layout was made primarily with Crate Paper's "Little Boy Blue" collection.  The circles on the side were fussy cut from a piece of patterned paper from October Afternoon's "Five and Dime" collection.  

Next up is one of my favourites, also made with Crate Paper's "Little Boy Blue" collection.  I used Mister Huey's Letter Jacket and Powder Blue.  The alpha's are from Basic Grey, Jenny Bowlin and Thickers.

This next one is one I just finished today.  It's the first time I have used the POW glitter paper and I am hooked!  Love it!  I should note...I thought the POW paper was sticker backed, but it's not.  When I tried to pull the back off, it just started to rip.  It has a glossy back to it, which might make it hard to adhere.  I used Tombow's Mono Multi liquid glue and it seemed to bond really well.  I'm a big fan of the hexagon trend and this is the first time I have created a layout with it.  I used Simple Stories "Take a Hike" for the background paper.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the hexagon pattern as well as the title.   The patterned paper is from Studio Calico's Roller Rink kit.  I threw on some MME enamel dots and button, Pebbles wooden clips and Marcy Penner flair.  I stamped the fork and knife using Amy Tangerine's Ready Set Go stamp set.  I used a white glaze pen for the journaling.  I love how this one turned out!! : )

Lastly, I thought I would share a layout I have done of my youngest son.  This one, once again, is almost entirely Crate Paper "Little Boy Blue"...sure love that one eh?! ; )  The title was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  The "heart this" phrase is from Ali Edwards and the "look" tag is one I made by altering a Studio Calico class cut file.  I love the ledger washi tape I used on this one.  I'm pretty sure it came in Studio Calico's Roller Rink kit...not positive though.
