Pages with Papertrey #12

Happy hump day!!! I hope you are having a good week so far. I have finally gotten around to sharing the second page of a 2 page layout for my son's baby album. All of the elements are from the Becky Higgins Sweet Baby kit except the patterned paper used for the title and journaling.
This layout was created for Pages with Papertrey challenge #12. I also modified a previous sketch #4 for my layout.  For challenge #12, we are to make a title using patterned paper. There are some aplha stickers and rub ons that come with the kit, but they were either too big or too small for what I wanted. So I decided to cut out my title using my Silhouette. The patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink's Library Ledger collection and the sentiment is design id#9425. I cut it twice also using some of the blue grid paper from the kit to give it a shadow effect. I have seen Nichol Magourik use this technique all the time and it really gives it some depth. I used the same patterned paper to journal on. The arrows were also cut with my Silhouette design id#20270. I added some glossy accents (which unfortnately you cannot see in the photo) and popped them up with foam adhesive.

The middle arrow in the layout is pointing to the reflection in the ornament. I wanted to include this photo in my son's baby album because at this age, he still took 3 naps a day. So after I picked him up from daycare, he would snuggle up in the carrier and I would get a bit of crafting done. As you can tell by the Christmas tree, this was around the holidays, which we all know is a busy time. He is the little black blob in the center of the ornament.

I have the next two pages I am working on for his album laid out on the scrap table already. Fingers crossed for some time to actually work on putting them together. Thanks for stopping by!
