The newest Dear Lizzy Daydream collection was perfect for scrapping the photos I took on the day of my niece's baby's baptism. Ahhh...it was so nice to hold a little baby again, especially one that isn't keeping me up at night! Hahaha. It's been quite a while, but I've evidently not lost my touch. When the little guy began to fuss, I was able to lull him to sleep.
Punched banner shapes from several papers from the 6" x 6" paper pad were used to embellish the large hot air balloon (totally inspired by the die-cut on its right). It was a bit labor intensive...but so worth it!
My second page is a little bolder, with freeform scallop borders at the top and bottom.
A bit of penstitching along the paper edges gives definition to most of the elements.
Who would have thought I'd be scrapping baby pages? It was a nice change of pace! And I sure had the perfect paper collection for the task.
Both of these layouts were featured on the American Crafts blog last week, along with directions for each of the pages. :)
