Pages with Papertrey, sketch #9

***Gasp*** I know it's been a while since I've played along with Pages with Papertrey. Let's see, this page plays along with Pages with Papertrey sketch #9. Leigh used this sketch.

I really had these images printed out and sitting on a piece of 12x12 paper before my son's 1st birthday. Yes, over a month ago, I thought I would scrap this layout. But no adhesive ever touched the page. It's actually a good thing for me, I think. There was something about it that just wasn't right. You, see, the photos that I intended to use were 3x4. If they were a bit bigger, they would've filled in the space and I just felt it was too empty. So I decided to use some paper to fill it in a bit.

I used some PTI Rustic Cream cardstock along with other papers from the Becky Higgins Sweet Baby kit. The "3 month" chipboard circle and "family" rub-on were also part of the kit. I used my PTI Banners die to create the banner and added epoxy stickers from the kit on top. I used score tape underneath the banners to adhere it and placed the banners on top with foam tape. It was a little easier than I thought to make it work. The bows I simply adhered using a glue dot right on top of the banner. The file tab is a sticker which is also from the kit. I used PTI's Mini Scrapbook series: Library Ledger for the date as well to make my journal lines. The main 12x12 is Quicksand from Bazzill.

I have also been trying to work on the second half of this 2 page layout. Yes, these pictures have been "staring" at me as well. Do not fear, though. They will make it to the blog soon. And I have also started that sewing project that I eluded to before in my PTI July blog hop post. It's amazing how much "free" time I have now that I am not planning a birthday party.

If you love baby pics, I hope you stop by tomorrow. You won't want to miss this. Really! Thanks for stopping by!
