More First Birthday Layouts

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Trailer Feast

Friday, November 11th, 2011

While in Austin with my mom, we stopped by the Gypsy Picnic, a trailer food festival.  We joined up with my friends Chris and Jennifer for a lunchtime feast.  I had been to the Oakland version, Eat Real, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This one was equally as great and cheaper.  😉  I had the most ridiculous dessert donut (with icing and peach jam), crispy thai chicken, a fried pierogi, a chicken doner kebab, a gourmet hot dog, and a strawberry basil smoothie.  Yum, yum, yum!!

Products used – Patterned papers: KaiserCraft (forks), Making Memories (dots), pink paislee (grid), lily bee design (yellow/blue), My Mind’s Eye (yellow/cream), Bazzill Swiss dot;  Journaling block:  KaiserCraft;  Accents: KaiserCraft (lemons), October Afternoon (date) ; Letters: American Crafts Thickers;  Sketch:  Sketch Support

Chompers

Tobin’s first tooth!  It was next to impossible to get a photograph of his first tooth.  Every time I tried, he stuck his tongue out, covering the tooth.  These are far from the best photos, but you have to roll with what you’ve got.  When I have more time to master Gimp or Photoshop, I will do my best to clean up the larger photo and update this layout with it.

Products used:  Patterned papers, letters, journaling block:  Making Memories;  Stickers:  Jolee’s

Just in Time for the Celebration

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

We had two grandmas in town for Tobin’s birthday celebration.  Unfortunately, Tobin had a cold and we had to reschedule his party with friends.  But we had a wonderful time together with the family.  These are our group photos out by the pretty hydrangeas in our neighborhood.

Products used:  Patterned papers:  American Crafts, SEI (dots);  Letters:  Making Memories, Prima

Hand cut embellishments:  The embellishment on the left page was created from a white circle and trees cut out from the patterned paper on the right page.  I added interest by lining the edge of the white circle with dots from a brown marker.

I created the journaling block by layering papers with rounded corners.

Mismatched paper:  This page incorporates a new idea I’ve been meaning to try.  I added subtle interest to the page by incorporating two different colors in the background.  The left page has a darker shade of blue than the right page.  I brought the two shades together by adding a darker blue journaling block on the right.

A Walk Along the Beach

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Every March we go to Tahoe for a week to ski and visit the town.  This year Tobin came with us for the first time and my friends Ali and Terrence joined, too!

If Tobin’s nose looks a little….red…..we had our first big booboo in Tahoe.  =(  It’s all healed up now, though.

Products used:  Papers: Creative Memories (background), Imaginisce (trees), Scenic Route (green), Making Memories (bronze), SEI (thin striped strips);  Embellishments: Bella Blvd (clouds), My Mind’s Eye (circle), Me & My Big Ideas (togetherness);  Letters: K&Company (beach), Creative Memories;  Sketch: Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 8
