7 Month Layout

I have been needing to finish my baby's first-year album, and he is already 16 months old. I also wanted to participate in some challenges. But I don't need any cards. So I tweaked them a little and came up with this layout:

The challenges are Dynamic Duos:

I used the cloud paper from Dotty for You to partake in the dessert option. I know there are some splashes of other colors, but I use a baby shower card to embellish each page, and I thought this one was so cute with this page!

Less is More - up in the air. I interpreted this inspiration by using clouds and the little bird in the tree. This is a clean and simple challenge, so I tried to make my layout as simple as possible with no distressing and minimal layers.

The Sweet Stop:
I used this sketch for my left page and I put the little bird on it for the spin.


I used this sketch as my right page, just adding a strip at the bottom for the photos.

I hope you like my layout. I know it will look much better once I get my photos developed and attached!


  1. Wow, Sarah, very impressive for any number of reasons: great idea to use the card sketches for your scrapbooking layout; brilliant to use the Dotty for You paper for the blue sky/clouds (I have mostly been using the dotty BACKS of all those gorgeous papers-couldn't figure out what to do with the fronts!); and so smart to "up-cycle" your baby's shower cards as art in his baby album. You are inspiring me to scrap, too, vs making cards! Happy Sunday.

  2. Great way to use The Sweet Stop sketch in a layout! I love the little birde in the corner

  3. What a great lay-out. Love the way you used the sketch and the 'bird' theme. Pretty colors. Thank you for playing along with us at The Sweet Stop this week.

  4. Great layout, Sarah! I'm over three years behind in my scrapbooking, so I think you're in great shape (and I don't have a toddler!) I love that you use a baby card on each page, great idea :o) Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week!
