I love, love, love the sketch this month for CREATE! I got right to work with my 6×6 paper pads constructing a super fun color scheme for these photos. I wanted the beautiful pink flowers to jump off the page. 😉
Please stop by and see what my fellow designers did with this sketch and other inspirations this month in the September CREATE magazine.

I don’t do it often, but for the boys’ baby books, I had a few layouts to duplicate. One for their baby book and one for me to keep. I made this Monkey layout for the CREATE magazine but forgot I wanted two copies:
I couldn’t find another sheet of the sock monkey paper but really wanted to keep the same theme so I made my own sock monkey paper. I used a Recollections paper for the background and a Silhouette cut (supposed to be a juggling sock monkey) for the big guy.
Here are the two monkeys side by side:
Our first son at 1 & 1/4, 1 & 1/2, 1 & 3/4, and finally 2 years old!

One of Calvin’s very first masterpieces. He followed instructions in his big brother’s art book to draw a robot. A must for his baby book.
Boys out on a summer walk on a dry day with rainboots, one is missing pants and they’ve stopped to check out a snail. Classic.

We attended the premiere of this film in San Francisco because a friend of ours was one of the executive producers. Of course I forgot to take photos, so I documented the event with our tickets and a photo from online. It works!
