I always take way too many photos of my babies when I'm trying to capture their smile on camera. Usually I finally get one, plus some other really funny faces. I did this layout back in 2011 to document my daughter's faces.
When I saw the viewfinder layout by Kinsey Wilson on Pinterest, I knew it would be perfect for scrapping the photos my son's smile. However, all of the viewfinders I have are too small. I want to see his expressions (especially because the pictures were taken at night)! So I created my own in Illustrator. It isn't perfect, not even close--don't even think about measuring the distance between the squares and it's very simplified. I decided to put the viewfinder clipping mask up for free download for y'all in case you want to scraplift the layout too! FYI: it is not a viewfinder element, but a clipping mask so you will have to clip your own paper(s) to it.
I had a request earlier this summer to add more woodland animals to the Woodland Adventure kit. Before I start, what kind of animals would you like to see? I'm thinking I'll attempt a raccoon, moose, owl, maybe a deer...
Any other things you'd like to see from Citrus and Mint?
This weekend I finally sat down and forced myself to get some pages done for Alex's baby book. I'm determined to not add to his middle child complex by never completing his baby book. I decided to do most of his layouts in pocket style and save the fancy (i.e. time consuming) layouts for the special occasion pages. So far I LOVE it! I got 3 two-page layouts done in one day! High five-ing myself. How about y'all? How do you do baby books/baby layouts? Or how do you get scrapping done with kids?!
Found the "Hello My Name Is" kit by Paislee Press and had to buy it now. Didn't even wait for a sale. Isn't it perfect?!
Used the DigiScrap parade "That's Life" kit for this layout
Got around to scrapping with my own "Prehistoric Pond Life" kit with this layout.
