Here's another baby layout I did. I really wanted to do something special with this photo of DS holding DD2's 1 day old foot in his hand.
He is so sweet with her and is fantastic at putting her to sleep. I thought this photo perfectly showcased how tender he is with her and is a memory I wanted to preserve.
I again used paper from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Pad. I cut out the deer from this sheet and raised it using pop dots. I did the same with the P. I used a chipboard letter as a template and handcut the letter and raised it on pop dots. The "P is For" circle was cut using my fiskars templates and I stamped the circle and then chalked it for added effect... again using pop dots.
Finally I used rub-ons to add interest to the page. My journalling is hand written as I do like to have my handwriting on the pages whenever possible as I know how special I find handwritten things of my mothers' and grandmothers.
So the ways I saved on this layout were the handcut "P" from patterned paper in the pad and by cutting out an element on the paper and raising it up to make it an embellishment.
