Scrap Book Baby shower Evening.
We all enjoyed preparing as many pages as we wanted so that Clare can add photos of the baby after it is born.
As we did not know whether the baby is a boy or girl we used mutual colours such as yellow, green, brown, grey and orange. Blue and pink crept in here and there.
I used the swirl from my new "Everything Eleanor" stamp set which had only arrived that day.
Debi finished first. She said that the Elephant embellishment was specially brought along to be used for a page.
Clare asked us all to write in a journalling box somewhere on a page.She wanted us to write something for the baby possibly including a Bible verse or poem. This gave each page a very personal touch.
My verse was from Psalm 127 verse 3 :- "Children are a gift from the Lord. The fruit of the womb is His reward."
Sarah used the Stampin up Baby Tees Wheel along the bottom of one of her pages. Clare said that she liked the way that it faded out at the end. If we had used an ink cartridge then that would not have happened.
I like the way that she used the wavy trimmer to give the idea of splashing and waves.
Claire J.did a Thank You page with some photos of her son who Clare G.has child minded.I love the addition of the dragon flies at the top.
There is a certain knack for getting it to line up properly.
It was good to use up some of my stash and I am glad to say that Clare is putting the pages in a 12 x 12 Creative Memories Album.
I can't wait to see it!
