Scrapbook Saturday: Pregnant Belly & Meeting Little Brother

Happy National Scrapbook Day! This isn’t really a post about that, but I thought I’d wish you all a good one on our national holiday 🙂

I’m slowly making progress on Tobin’s first year book. Here are a couple of layouts I’ve finished that I wanted to share because of some details.

The Expanding layout I like for a couple of reasons: (1) The extra spacing between the letters of the title make me laugh. They serve as title and journalling in one. Especially to any woman who has ever been pregnant. I mean, isn’t “expanding” exactly how you felt? and (2) I really like how the numbers of the weeks turned out. I painted a bit of yellow acrylic paint straight on the picture and then used black acrylic paint to stamp the number of weeks I was in the photo. The layout is a lift from the May/June issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. and is by Jen Lessinger.



The second layout I’m sharing is one of my favorite photos from Tobin’s birth. This is the day that Nicholas came to the hospital and met Tobin. I just loved seeing my boys together, Finally.

It’s a simple layout with a painted chipboard frame with some white rub-on letters. I think that the look of happiness on William’s face was all the journalling I needed on this one!

So what crafts have you done lately? I’d love to see your layouts or projects!
