i have been popping into my scraproom during all my free little moments lately. all i have been working on is miss ella's book. why is is that baby girls are the funnest thing to scrap. god help me if i have a son.

i have also been poking around blogs and checking out sketches. i think i have followed a sketch once in my whole scrap life. however, in the last week, i have kinda used three of em. they definately help give direction and jumpstart the scrapping process.

here's a sketch from the Sassafras blog that i chekced out.

here's what i came up with:

Title: A mother's love is like nothing else in the world it knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. Agatha Christie.

I am working on a sketch from Studio Calico now and will post it soon.

Here are a few other layouts that i've created recently.

Title: Already
Journaling: They already love you. They are already hooked. They already know you are meant to be here. They are already asking lots of questions about you. They already want to hug and kiss on you. They are already calling you their baby sister. You have only been in this big world for 30 minutes and still, they already know that you belong to them, always.

Title: where there is love there is life.
Journaling: your first moments with your parents after you were born. 2/24/11

Title: Meeting Ella
Journaling: It is amazing the joy, love, and happiness a new baby brings to a family. Your birth was no exception. MiMi, Pops, Nana, Daddy, Hayden, Madelyn, Maw Maw Ethel, Aunt Kathy, nannie, and Paran were all at the hospital when you were born. All of our hearts grew a little bit bigger when we met you. You are a very loved little girl.

even though i've gotten a lot of layouts done lately i haven't felt super creative. you know that great feeling you get when you feel like you are oozing all over with inspiration. i brought some stuff to the store today to work on so i am hoping the oozing begins soon.

happy happy thursday!
hope it's blessed.

  1. love the multi-photo layouts! I rarely use sketches either - I always think there are too symmetrical and boxy - but your take on the sketch is perfect!! I'm not that creative!!
