Sleeping Soundly

Welcome friends!  I hope everyone made it through and enjoyed my December Daily 2010 album, I had a lot of fun!  Before Valentine's Day kicks into high gear I wanted to share one of my LO's using a picture I just adore.

A few years ago I remember craft paper being all the rage, really it was everywhere!  When I saw this photo of baby E sleeping I knew I wanted to pair it with craft paper and cardboard.  I just love the vintage and classic feel when it's combined with a black and white photo!  This was also right around the time I got my Crop-A-Dile so I was using it a lot - so much fun!

I'm still trying to determine exactly how old E is in this one. Unfortunately, at the time I took the picture, I had my first digital camera and no mater what I did it dated every single picture as a random month in 2005.  Bizarre!!  So enjoy a throwback to the early years of my adorable son while I celebrate that my current camera dates photos just fine!

This LO warms my heart & brings back the most beautiful memories!

I used sticker words & phrases from Making Memories to frame the photo.  They're all baby themed so it fits well.

Daisies & sunflowers are my favourite flowers.  I think they add just the right punch of color.

I used 2 small pieces of cardboard to add some texture & the Tim Holtz "Dream" key.  E certainly has the key to my heart!

This photo and this page just bring me so much peace.  It makes me remember all the cute and funny things E did as a baby.  I am always challenging myself to scrap E's baby photos in different ways and using products that are outside the typical "baby" theme.  If I ever get around to picking up a 12 x 12 shadowbox frame this one will definitely go on the wall!

Thanks for popping by and peeking at my page!  I'd love to know - if you scrap baby photos, do you use "traditional" theme supplies or something else?

Happy Scrapping!

    I know you did this a while back, but that key you have on here is fabulous! Where did you find that?
