I have been slowly working on my daughter's baby album.  I did a two page layout showcasing the very first photos that were taken the night she was born.  

I used several different Cricut Cartridges for this layout.  The title "Our Precious Gift" was cut from the Jasmine cartridge at 2.5 inches.  The subtitle May 7, 2010 was cut from Plantin SchoolBook at 1.5 inches.  
This heart was cut from Paper Pups at 1.5 inches.  I added Pink Stickles to the word  love.

New arrival was cut from New Arrival Cartridge at 1.25 inches.  The hearts were cut from Gypsy Wanderings (border option) at 1 inch and  I added more pink Stickles to make them pop a little bit more.

These flowers were cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 1 inch and finished with some green and pink Stickles.

Sweet Baby is cut a 2.25 inches and Girl is cut at 1.5 inches - both are from Gypsy Wanderings.  I again added a little sparkle to the flower on Girl with some more pink Stickles.

I used this small photo as a pocket for a tag with her birth information one one side and journaling on the other side.  This was the information cut from New Arrivals cartridge cut at 3 inches and I cut the words apart and only used time, weight, and length.  The tag was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge at 4.75 inches.  I added some pink ribbon (after I took my photos).
The first Page.
The second Page.
While these pictures are some the most unflattering pictures (after 18 hours of natural labor I wasn't thinking about how I looked) I will ever scrap of myself - they do represent one of the moments I am most proud of in my life.  I have always loved children and wanted to be a Mom.  Once I held my little girl for the first time, I had such a peace and joy fill my heart and I knew in that moment that my life had changed.  She is such a beautiful blessing and everyday my husband and I are thankful for our precious gift.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  As always, I enjoy reading your comments.
