Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

I have started my son's scrapbook. Here is the very first finished page. Papertrey Ink's Blog hop challenge came just in time and helped push my page from boring to PERFECT and all it took was a tilt of the word "HELLO". You see, I was going to put the word "HELLO" on this page straight, how boring, right? Just before I started gluing things down, I remembered PTI's challenge for this month, "Tilted". You can find the details to the challenge on Nicole's blog. It was just the technique this page needed.
I don't consider myself a scrapbooker (cards are so much easier) so I find these baby books for my children to be extra challenging on my creativity but always rewarding when they are finished. Of course it helps to have such cute kids to work with.
I can't wait to see all the other fun projects everyone else had come up with for this challenge!


  1. Completely enjoyed reading through your blog! Your baby is gorgeous! (Boys can be gorgeous!) and your sissy's STD's! Honestly your a hoot! Can't wait for the wedding!
    Oh and love the scrapbook page. Brilliant angling the hello.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words!

  2. What a great layout! I love all the bright colors. And you are right - the tilted Hello is just perfect. Your son will appreciate the time you took one day. He is a cutie!

  3. I do think the tilted "hello" is perfect!

  4. Oh, so sweet! Tilting the hello definitely was the thing to do - looks great!

  5. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment! So sweet. Your layout is adorable! You're right, Cards are way easier but I love how scrapbooks layouts are like a stopping time....with style! You nailed it! TFS!
