Oh Baby! Blog Hop

I have to start with a shout out to one of my babies -
Little Bear - who turns 8 today!

Welcome to the Oh Baby! Blog Hop hosted by Emily at http://www.createserendipity.net/.  If you've stopped by my blog today for the hop, then you're in for a treat! If this is your first stop, make sure you go back to the beginning and hop along with all of the rest of the blogs to see all of our fabulous Baby themed projects! If you arrived here from Deborah at http://www.scrappingmamma.net/ then you are in the right place.  This is a very large hop, so you have 3 days to check out all of the projects! This hop runs from August 4-6, so make sure you check back for new projects each day!

Now on to my project for today:


This is a page from a baby book that I created for a friend.  She wanted a baby book that didn't look so babyish.  To create this book, I used the Fanfare papers from Close to my Heart and miscellaneous embellishments.  My favorite part of this page is the pull out journaling square.  Many scrapbookers are hesitant to journal because they don't like their handwriting, but our words give so much more to our layouts.  This pull out is the perfect solution!  Write your note so that it isn't a part of the layout but someone can still know the story of the page.  I created similar pages for the daddy and big sister.

 And now, for blog candy.  For your first entry, please leave a comment on this post.  For additional entries, you can (1) become a follower and (2) share this post on Twitter or Facebook.  For each additional entry, post a comment saying you've done so (and include the link if applicable).  No extra entries for this, but we'd love to have you like us on Facebook or follow @mamacurls on Twitter.

Now hop along to Michelle at http://www.designsoncloud9.blo​gspot.com/ and see what she has made for today!
