Worn With Love

Today I'm sharing a layout I created with the February Hip Kit. I've said it many times, I love that kit. I'm hoarding every little piece of scrap paper because I just can't get enough of it. I do think there are a couple left in the Hip Kit store.

The subject of this layout is near and dear to my heart. It's about the onesie. I bought this onesie when I found out I was pregnant with Danika, 9 years ago and gave it to the Mr. as a way to announce that I was expecting. At first, he didn't understand the meaning of the gift, he thought it was for sometime in the future but once I told him I was expecting, he was the happiest man on earth. Ever since, all 3 girls have worn this onesie, I'm sad that it wont' be worn again but also very happy. We are done having babies and I'm FINE with that. LOL!!! I do think the onesie will be preciously kept to pass down to the girls when they have babies, yikes!!!

I love the background paper by Elle's Studio, I flipped the page sideways to have the printed border at the top. I added some Cameo cuts that I had pre cut, I always keep a stash of pre-cut cuts, this way I always have some on hand and can quickly put a layout together. As much as I love my Cameo, I find it time consuming to stop a layout to search for a cut and cut it out. Yeah, I'm lazy that way. I usually have 30 to 45 minutes to create a layout, so I have to be quick quick. 

Happy Monday, hope the sun is shining.
