Final batch of baby pages

Here are the final batch of layouts I did for Baby Month over at
This first layout was for a challenge to include photos of bath fun and also use circles, yellow and a multi alpha title. I used some October Afternoon Ducks in a Row to fill in the circles and nearly a whole packet of Kaiser epoxy circles for the blue dots.

This layout was for a challenge to scrap some baby memorabilia and to include bling, buttons and scallops. I scrapped about my son's teddy - Buffy.
I've used Echo Park This and That Charming for this one.

 Next layout was for a challenge to scrap first year milestones and include at least 2 photos. I'm loving the trend to use hexagons so had a go with some and  I used up some MME in the process.

 My final layout was for a quote challenge. I decided to use the quote 'I love you to the moon and back'. This is the first photo of DS and me. I have used Bella Boulevard We're Expecting pp for this one.
 Finally, a few pages of an OTP challenge I did - Baby stats. I created a page for each of use.

Some more baby pages

Well, I've got another 3 pages done for the Baby Month challenges over at
This first one was for Aga's banner and bunting sketch challenge. It was a great way to use up lots of scraps and I love banners anyway.

This layout was for the challenge to scrap an ultrasound picture. I have used Cosmo Cricket Togetherness for this.

Finally this was a nursery inspiration challenge to use one of the pictures of nursery's shown for inspiration.

DS's baby album is sure moving a long now.

It's baby month

over at with a month of baby related challenges. I have managed to get 3 done so far. I've decided to concentrate on scrapping pages of DS as I realised I have done very few. DH has been very kind and scanned in all the negatives from photos of DS from 0-1. It's amazing how different they are to the photos we have and how we are now able to tweak them to look better.

This first layout was for a sketch challenge which also had to include a bird or animal and some border punching. I used up some more of my favourite MME Fine and Dandy.
 This second layout was for a challenge to write about a birth story and include a pocket to include the journalling. This time I used some Echo Park This and That Charming.

This 3rd layout was for a challenge to do a layout about the name choices you'd made for your child. I used some Oct Afternoon for this.

Last March layouts

Well I managed 13 layouts for March and 10 of them were for the challenges over at! Here is the last one I did for those challenges. Last week the challenges were all based on chipboard. This one is for the What's Cooking challenge, where you had to include nude chipboard, altered chipboard and photos smaller than 4x6. I decided on doing a double as I had so many photos of DS when he did the Green Challenge at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary last December.

This layout was for Kerryn's Manufacturer Challenge over at Scrapbook Savvy. The manufacturer for March was October Afternoon and the extra criteria was to use chipboard. I used up some very old OA Daydream journalling cards and die cuts.

Finally, 2 layouts for sketch challenges. This one was for the sketch challenge over at Handmade by Suzanne. Not sure I really liked the end result of this. The papers seemed a perfect match for the shirt DS was wearing but I think it needs something else and I couldn't figure out what.
  Finally, my entry for the sketch challenge over at Anna's Craft Cupboard.
