Hi! Over at "Lasting Memories", they are having a design team call for 2012! They are layouts only which is perrrrfecttt for me since I need to get my butt in gear and crank out those layouts of Kenzie's first year. The current design team is amazing, so I wanted to apply for the design team call and complete their challenge this week. Wish me Luck!
Here is the inspirational photo:
And here is the sketch I used that they provided for optional use:
And finally here is my layout!
The picture on the left is so much like the inspirational photo I had to use it! It is Kenzie at only 1 month old admiring the Christmas tree lights :) the one on the right is her little Christmas pjs with reindeer on the feet and says Baby's First Christmas on the tag on her chest.
This is a little tag that came on one of her gifts from this Christmas, I though it was soo cute I wanted to use it as an embellishment. It's one of those little picture things that changes when you move it side to side. I used little metal accent snowflakes and tied twine from the twinery in peapod and maraschino (love their color names!) into a little bow and attached it with a glue dot.
I used metal letters and instead of attaching them with brads or eyelets, I glued them with a zig pen and put little gray rhinestones over the holes, then popped the whole thing up on pop dots.
I used my Martha Stewart score board to accordian fold this strip along the bottom and attached just the ends so it would stay 3D. I then stamped a little circle only halfway underneath and put the year and Kenzie's name.
WISH ME LUCK!
****Update! I made it on the Design Team!!*****
