Scrap That Baby - layout, mini album and DT call

Phew, another 9 days with no blogging. Another busy month almost gone. Ella went to 2 birthday parties, dressed like a lumberjack for Lumberjack day at school and graduated from speech therapy. So proud of this girl! 
Lila spent hours at the rink, practicing for the Nationals and participated in drama workshop at school. Last Thursday the club organized a party for the team to wish them good luck and she received her medal from Maplewood competition. Her team took the first place but the organizers were one medal short, so Lila agreed to wait. Tuesday early morning they fly out to California.

We had snow, again. So much snow this year. It was beautiful. But I started to think about spring and warmer weather. I am waiting anxiously for summer. My parents are coming to spend few weeks with  us and I can't wait.

To make it easier for Eli to connect with his grandparents, I made a little book for him with pictures of his grandparents and his uncles and aunts. It is a super easy project that took only few minutes after I chose the pictures and printed them. More pictures and full tutorial here at Scrap That Baby.
Here is another layout I made for Scrap That Baby. The prompt was "funny faces. Eli looks puzzled by the strange creature with fur and whiskers.
 I painted the center of the patterned paper with acrylic paint and used the same paint to add green dots to the tags.

Supplies: patterned paper and tags (Basic Grey), letter stickers (Doodlebug), paint (Honig), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), twine, photo corners

I love designing for Scrap that Baby! Sarah's prompts make me create layouts that I probably wouldn't otherwise. I just finished working on my layout for the next prompt that will be posted March 1st. If you scrapbook about babies under age 4, you may want to apply for Scrap That Baby Design Team. But hurry, the deadline is tomorrow. All info is here.

  1. The mini-book is a great idea - it's much easier for small children to understand about things or people they can see - even if only in a picture.
    I do love the photos of Eli with the cat. Little kids are wonderful, the way they will get in really close to investigate. The cat doesn't seem to mind him (though my DS learned a lesson last week, when my niece's cat took fright at being hugged and scratched him in the face - he's 13 and I would have thought he'd know better...apparently not!). Obviously the cat in your pictures is more placid and doesn't mind children. What a wonderful couple of photos to keep for ever - and so well set off by your clever scrap page!
