The First Year Album Continued . . .

I don’t know what happens to all the minutes of my day.  I’ve not really had time to blog about the album even though I’d done most of the work on these two pages several nights ago.  Last night I finished these pages and one of my grandson’s altered notebooks and this morning I’m determined to get the album posted.  Hopefully the notebooks will follow later today.  So here is the first pic.


I used New Arrival for the bassinet and after I was finished putting it together I thought it would have been better had I used my Cuttlebug and the Swiss dot folder on it.  I used my Storybook cartridge for the “Month One” title and the floral border at the bottom of the page, and George for the little flowers.  I added some Stickles for a little bling.  I also used my Fiskars Threading Water punch for the bottoms of the journaling blocks. 


If you look closely or maybe not so close, you’ll see that I put the paper on upside down.  How did I do that?  By the time I noticed it, it was too late to do anything and I had no more paper.  Phooey!  I also really need to work on adding more dimension to my work.  P1040727

This is the second page.  I’m giving my niece room enough for a few photos and lots of room to journal.  I sure hope she’ll like it.
