Pages with Papertrey sketch #31

Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. The hubs and I had a great time enjoying some of the Florida Music Festival. If you missed my earlier post about this event, you can find out more here. I managed to find some time on Sunday afternoon to put this page together for Pages with Papertrey sketch #31. I had originally designed this page before even seeing the sketch. It is a bit off, but I believe my collage of photos works well with the sketch.

This page is one of the last 6 pages in my son's baby album. I have been using the Becky Higgins Sweet Baby kit. The 12x12 is patterned paper that is a part of the kit. I made my monthly images of my son into 2.5 inch squares, adhered them to a piece of rustic cream cardstock and trimmed off a small portion. I slipped on some photo corners  and then I adhered it to the patterned paper. I added the blue ruler sticker border that is also from the kit. I used my Tim Holtz tiny attacher for the staples and then adhered the chipboard stars that are also from the kit.

I love how this page captures just how much my little guy changed in his first year of life. I am so happy to have these memories.
I got the idea to take/make these monthly photos of my son from Susan Weinroth. She has a tutorial on her blog about how to make these onesies. As you can tell by the 12 month photo, I had run out of the white onesies and just couldn't bear to buy another packet of them for one photo session. So I just had him hold the cardstock up.
Well, that is all for now. I hope to find some time in my craftroom this week, but as we know, sometimes is just doesn't work out. Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Adorable Deb! Love him holding the twelve month card. It's kind of like "tah dah"!!!

  2. Oh, I love this!! I did layouts like this for my kids, but they were all holding the same stuffed animal. I love those onesies!


Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving some kind words. They brighten my day!
