For today’s layout I wanted to do something to help remember the everyday for Amelia. There are so many milestones as our babies grow up, but it is the little things I want to remember as well. Those little adorable crazy faces she makes or her favourite food at the moment. So, I did an 18 month layout of a day Amelia and I were hanging out by ourselves and she was goofing around with a mini slinky. The title of the layout was…
She was wearing her little Tommy Hilfiger dress that was black & white with red. I didn’t have many embellishments in those colours so instead of running to the store, I thought I would just make my own. So much faster and cheaper that way. The first thing I did was take a couple white paper doilies and rub the outside edges right onto a red ink pad.
I didn’t really have any black and white paper either but I did have some mistables paper from Pink Paislee. It had a cute chevron pattern and I took my black ink pad right to it and just rubbed it on until the paper was covered. I took a paper towel to rub off the excess and voila, the pattern appeared.
Here is the entire 18 month layout. I added some pretty pins and a flower from Webster’s Pages. The black flowers I had in my stash (luckily) but I am not sure where they are from.
Here is the left side. Check out those adorable faces she makes, haha.
Here is the right side, with Amelia’s foot covering part of it, the little stinker. God forbid I should be trying to do something without her. She just had to involve herself some how :). I used a lot of vintage items in this layout such as the red buttons, the old flash card and an old explosives card for the Pennsylvania Railway (I ordered a bunch of cool cards off of e-bay for my art).
Here is the card that her foot was covering. Just a few things I thought we might want to remember as she gets older.
Hopefully these are things she will want to know as she gets older as well and let her know how much she is loved.
