Scrapbook for Preston

I was asked by a friend to make a scrapbook for her baby who's celebrating his first birthday. I had the photos for a couple of weeks before I even began to work on this project! For some reason, I have to "digest" the photos and the whole concept of the theme before I can actually get a move on. Sounds strange eh? Well, the theme for this birthday is Elmo and Sesame Street so I immediately thought of using the cricut and the SS cartridge. I borrowed this from my GF Cece since Nolan is a teenager now, I didn't want to buy this cartridge, couldn't think of anything to make! I have to send out a huge THANK YOU to my GF Joy who helped me cut out and assemble all of these SS characters. THANK YOU JOY!! What a lifesaver!!
The book turned out having 15 pages, so I'll be posting a bunch at a time. Here's a pic of what my table looked like with all of the photos and supplies. What next?Once I started creating, the ideas started to flow and here are the first 4 pages! My favorite QK die, Frankie lower...the stars are SU punches and the stickers are by Bazzill.
I'm finally using those large scalloped edge papers by Bazzill - can we say collection?? To represent each month, I typed the month and then punched it out using the SU 1 3/4" circle punch and the super jumbo marvy circle punch. Also, for each journaling entry (I made my friend journal on each photo, then I typed them up) I added a star next to it.
Love this Elmo cricut cutout!
The pages get cuter as we move along here...
BTW, Happy Friday! My foot is feeling better today, but I noticed that my toe area is kinda purple in color, strange. I'll be posting more pages tomorrow. Big day for the SU demos tomorrow...we have Regional at the Hawaii Convention Center! Looking forward to a day of stamping, creating and fellowship with my SU friends!! Hope I have time to make a few swaps. I'll be posting pics of my gifts to my DL soon. Thank you for looking in today!

super cute, teri! try putting Phiten tape on your toe area & leave it on for a couple of days, you'll be amazed at how well it helps with the blood circulation.
look for me at SU! regional!

Maria said...

Wow, Teri!! 15 pages. . .i can barely make one!! LOL! Looks like you've been slaving away making such wonderful layouts for your friend. She will surely be happy because your layouts are FABULOUS! Awwww, her baby is so cute!!

When it comes to layouts. . .I don't even know where to start. . .I just sort of put stuff on the page! LOL! Too much thinking makes my head hurt. . .I guess that's why I avoid making LOs. It takes a lot out of me! LOL!!

Sorry to hear about your foot! Ouch! I hope it gets better soon! Take care!!
