finally a layout

Can you believe it? I actually made a layout today. I still can't believe it. I have been having a hard time scrapping lately, mainly because it takes me forever to finish a layout. And time is something very rare in this household nowadays. I wish I could do a layout by stages, like start it whenever I have 15 min time, and continue the next day, and again till it is eventually finished. However that is not how I work. If I know I only have an hour time, i don't even start. I guess that is something I have to work on ;-). So today Chris' mom looked after Damien in the afternoon and since I am still home on sick leave, it gave me the opportunity to scrap. I used these new W&W products by Heidi and Gina:Here is the layout, the photo was taken during Damien's first trip to the library. He really enjoyed himself and loved looking at all the books and games, however we do have to work on keeping a little more quiet.

Credits: brown background paper, scalloped border, straight orange stitches (recolored), ticket from Vintage Charm by Heidi Williams available at primahybrid.com; yellow paper from Soft & Shabby Elegance by Gina Marie Huff available at weedsandwildflowersdesign.com; stitched flowers and stem from Yarnin' It Up Blossoms by Gina Marie Huff available at weedsandwildflowersdesign.com; polaroid frame from Valentine Challenge Feb08 freebie by [ksharonkdesigns]; circle stamp from 100% tampons by [ v.vv ]; letter stamps from Real Stamped Alpha by Lisa Whitney; number stamps from Hand Stamped Brushes by Michelle Coleman, font: Catholic School Girls.

Such an adorable layout. Thanks for sharing it with us. I find it hard to complete a layout also and hate to start and stop. Let me know your secret if you figure out how it works for you.

Beautiful layout, that dark brown paper looks great with his outfit! It's funny you used one of Sharon's frame, because when I saw the layout my first thought was that it could have been one of her layouts-- it's that clean, but breathtaking style. Hope your feeling better these days. Still love your lists.

WOW, gorgeous layout! :-)

Wow, that turned out so cute!!! I am so the same way about scrapping - it can be weeks before I sit down and use all the stuff I gather (mostly thanks to your freebie lists:) I usually don't attempt it unless the kids are at my parents for the night!

I LOVE the layout you did - it´s worth all the time it took, for sure!

I had the image of it on mind all day long yesterday, so I did some sort of scraplift last night.

It´s here:

And, of course, thanks for the list and your blog!
