Baby Layouts - My Minds Eye Sweetest Thing Bluebell

Hallo friends,  last week Thursday I went to go and visit my friend Carina at her Scrapbook Studio in Jeffreys bay.  We were planning to have lunch together and I had a few hours to scrap before we went.  I started scrapping photos that was taken during the baby photo shoot shortly after Juan was born.  I wanted to put the focus on the photos, so you will notice that my photos are large.

Supply list:  Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers: My Minds Eye (Sweetest Thing Bluebell); Title Rub on: Daisy D's; Bling: Prima; Flowers: Bo Bunny and Prima; Sketch: Debbie Sanders of Scrapbook Generation.
The large photo of Juan is taken with him only wearing a purple beanie...yes he was that tiny.  I wanted to pull the purple through to the rest of the layout and matted my photos on purple cardstock  and added the Bo Bunny flowers that I got as a gift from my US friend Melanie.
...and a little bit of purple bling from Prima's e-line.
In my attempt to purge my stash I came across this beautiful title rub on by Daisy D's, a paper company that didn't survive the economic crisis.  To this day I believe that nobody makes rub on's of the same quality as they did.

The next two pager is of my handsome oldest son, Kobus and his tiny new born son.  I used three 5x7 photos and a 4x6 photo for this layout.
Supply list: Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers: My Minds Eye (Sweetest Thing Bluebell); Title and embellishments; (My Minds Eye (Sweetest Thing Bluebell); Rub on quote: Kaisercraft; Sketch: Debbie Sanders of Scrapbook Generation.

 I love these quote rub on's ...they just add so much to a page.

 I loved working with this line of paper and those enamel dots are lovely.
Another little cluster of embellishments to round off the layout.

Thank you for visiting me today.  Have a lovely day.

  26. So lovely Lynette. I wish it had been the fashion to have these types of photos taken of my babies. I didn't even own a decent camera back in the day. Beautifully scrapped too. You're right Daisy D rub-ons were great. The local Scrapbook King ones are very good quality I just don't like the heavy old-fashioned fonts they use.
