Bright Eyes Layout

I wanted to do a fun "springy" layout and I wanted to showcase some of the new pictures we have been taking of our daughter.  She has fallen in love with the camera and starts making faces and smiling when the flash goes off.  

I started with a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper (Urban Prairie - Monarch), but I couldn't decide where to place my photos without covering up the designs on the paper, when my uber talented sister Faith-Abigail suggested that I cut it up and use it as accents around the pictures.  As she said "the pictures are the most important part anyway."  So I pulled a wonderful poka-dot paper from my stash and some little paper embellishments (that came with a scrapbook kit I received several years ago). And viola...a two page layout with 6 photos.
Please excuse my messy desk.

And the second page.
I can't believe how quickly this layout came together, but then again time flies when your talking on the phone.  I'm very please with it and I can't wait to finish filling out the journaling tag and put it in her album.



This is a super cute LO Brandy! I love that BG paper and I can see why you didn't want to cover it up. The pictures really are the focus of the LO though and those pictures are absolutely PRECIOUS!!!!! Your daughter is ADORABLE!!! I love her big bright eyes and that little smirky smile on the top of the 2nd page is the sooooo cute! Thank you for sharing this! It put a smile on my face and gave me the get-up and go I needed to head to my craft area!! Have a great weekend!


What beautiful photo! I love the back ground paper its so pretty and suits the pictures perfectly. TFS :)


Well your sister had a great idea with this one. I just love the way this looks. I'll have to try this technique with some of my busier paper.
