Mom & Dad

It is nice to see the sun shining but it sure is deceitful....the temperature is just frigid outside today! That north wind just won't give up! So what better time to share a layout!

I am tackling my Grandson's birth photos one layout at a time. As I had the pleasure of being present while he was born, I was able to snap these shots of the new parents with their precious new arrival.

Here are some detail shots...

I popped up the two photos using some recycled cardboard backing from a sheet of punch outs. It works great as one side has the adhesive from where the punch outs were removed. It is a great alternative to purchasing pop dots.

I cut the arrow out with a die and layered on one of the die cuts. I also tucked in a couple of pieces on Tim Holtz film strip ribbon.

I used Pebbles - Special Delivery paper and die cuts for my layout. Adding some MME enamel dots, Allison Kreft designer paper clip, vinyl Thickers and Tim Holtz tiny tackers.

Here is the sketch from The Memory Nest - Make It Monday No. 34 that I used for inspiration.

Stay warm tonight! Stay Crafty!!!
