For the longest time I've had a scrappy crush on
everything that Crate Paper has been releasing! I was
so happy to see their most recent release Little Bo Beep.
Of course, the timing for me couldn't be more
perfect, baby girl is set to arrive this coming
Monday, so I decided it was time I do my first lo
about her. What better line to use than the new CP!!!

I've been scrapping on a smaller scale lately, 8.5x11
and I love it!!! The layouts come together so much quickly
and honestly right now, I'm pretty short on time.
Of course I've been inspired by so many scrappers that
excel at this format, like Sasha Farina, Waleska
and Cindy Stevens, sooo much talent!!!

These were the first pictures of baby girl.
I've layered the pictures together and tied them
with string from Divine Twine. This will
be the first page of her album, i think it's a
great way to start!!!

This layout was based on a sketch by Kristine Davidson
which was feature in her sketch book, Creative Scrappers
Creating with Sketches. Thanks Kristine for the book,
it's definetly a major source of inspiration.
