It's A BOY!!!! Rebecca's Baby Shower Blog Hop!!

Welcome to Lisa’s daughter, Rebecca’s, Baby Shower!
What a great idea to have a baby shower between your blogging friends. Lisa has asked that we make a two-page layout which she will present to her daughter.
 Rebecca is having a boy and her son’s name will be Maxwell Thaddeus.  So Let's send her a GREAT BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
There is a fantastick line-up to check out all of our layouts which I hope you enjoy!!!

If you have arrived here from Lisa T, then you are at the right place for this baby shower. If you just happened to visit me today or happened upon my blog, I don’t want you to miss a single present for the baby shower and would want you to begin at the very beginning which is the proud soon to be G'MA, Lisa!

Now for my Project!!

For the mommy :) I have a two page layout that is actually Very Close to my Heart ;) because I designed this one after a similar layout that I had done when I was pregnant :) 

This layout is made with the Cocoa Collection which unfortunatly is now retired.....and that is too bad because it has some awesome papers in it........but don't fear CTMH has lots of current packs to choose from that are equally Awesome!! 

I tore to pieces of B & T duos and heavily distressed the edges to really give it a bit of pop from the rest of the page!  The journaling sheet that is titled the day you were born is just basic cardstock that is ripped and really beat up to give it an aged book appearance........There is a pocket with a tag for additional journaling or a small photo.....or maybe to save a momento from that wonderful day!

I then embellished with buttons and chipboard from the Lucky assortment, and some blingy flowers.

Page two also has a nice journaling section which is basically just a sheet of notebook paper ripped out....I made some old tags that will be a nice place for new baby size.  And again embellished with some chipboard from the lucky assortment.  Both pages are edged with some ribbon left kind of soft and loose so as not to harden the look of the layouts.  And both journaling pages are topped off with a sweet little hand prints! 


I have some blog Candy for you to enter to win!  Just in time for Valentines Day too!!!!  I have this super cute CTMH Level 2 Paper Pack  "SweetHeart" which includes 24 of these adorable papers!

Cute isn't it?  Well it can be yours!  All you have to do to enter the drawing is to follow my site here and leave a comment...........and then head on over to my facebook page and become a fan there and post on the wall Congratulations to Rebecca!

Pretty simple stuff right?  And here's an added bonus!  Come back tomorrow, leave some more comments and get a second entry into the drawing!!  Good Luck!

Now on to your next stop.....Lynn.

Make it a Happy Scrappy Day!!
