Kenzie's First Christmas (2010)

Hi! Over at "Lasting Memories", they are having a design team call for 2012! They are layouts only which is perrrrfecttt for me since I need to get my butt in gear and crank out those layouts of Kenzie's first year. The current design team is amazing, so I wanted to apply for the design team call and complete their challenge this week. Wish me Luck!

Here is the inspirational photo:

And here is the sketch I used that they provided for optional use:

And finally here is my layout!

The picture on the left is so much like the inspirational photo I had to use it! It is Kenzie at only 1 month old admiring the Christmas tree lights :) the one on the right is her little Christmas pjs with reindeer on the feet and says Baby's First Christmas on the tag on her chest.

This is a little tag that came on one of her gifts from this Christmas, I though it was soo cute I wanted to use it as an embellishment. It's one of those little picture things that changes when you move it side to side. I used little metal accent snowflakes and tied twine from the twinery in peapod and maraschino (love their color names!) into a little bow and attached it with a glue dot.

I used metal letters and instead of attaching them with brads or eyelets, I glued them with a zig pen and put little gray rhinestones over the holes, then popped the whole thing up on pop dots.

I used my Martha Stewart score board to accordian fold this strip along the bottom and attached just the ends so it would stay 3D. I then stamped a little circle only halfway underneath and put the year and Kenzie's name.


Merry Christmas!

****Update! I made it on the Design Team!!*****

First Scrapbook Ever

This was my first scrapbook I ever made and I made it for my mom. It is mainly of my older brother, my younger sister, and I. I made it back in 2004 when I was only 15. It is 8 1/2" x 11" and bound by a 1 1/2" binder. I think I did a fantastic job for my first time AND without any knowledge whatsoever about bloggieland for inspiration! ;) Thought I would share my first time with all of you :)


I think this is my favorite one :)

2nd favorite lol

The End!

Hope you enjoyed!
