Mommy to Be & Daddy's Sunshine Scrapbook Layouts

A special SHOUT OUT to all you scrapbookers
who've been up around the clock this weekend! 
Happy World Scrapbook Day!

In honor of this, I decided to show you two of the scrapbook layouts I've completed recently.  These are individual page layouts for my precious granddaughter Emery's memory book. 

The first one is appropriately titled "Mommy to Be". . . my beautiful daughter Katie . . .

The quote under the photo reads:

"No one else will ever know
the strength of my love for you.
After all, you're the only one who knows
 what my heart sounds like from the inside."

My second layout is "Daddy's Ray of Sunshine" . . .

There is a tag stamped with lines hidden under the photo
 for my daughter or son-in-law to add some journaling.

Once I decided on the sunshine layout, I sorted through my scraps of yellow designer papers and cut the rays freehand.  I decided to zig zag stitch around them too.  The letters and the grass were both cut out with my Cricut machine.  The little flowers are punched and yellow buttons added with baker's twine.

 I've been a rubber stamping cardmaker for several years and now scrapbooking is my newest hobby.  Of course, with an adorable subject like Baby Emery, how could I resist?!  

I will have more pages to share with you, so stay tuned, ok?  And would you do me a big favor please?  If you're a scrapbooker and have a blog, please leave me a comment and let me know so I can follow you.  Or, if you have a favorite blog or scrapbook site, I would love to hear about that too!  Thanks!

 For Mother's Day, I'll be going to visit my daughter and family in Nevada and my camera will be close at hand, ready to capture more blessed memories.  I can't wait!  ♥     Just look at this recent photo of Emery at 10 mo old and you'll see why . . .

"Hey, Cabana Boy!  I'll have another bottle over here please!"  ;)

Thanks for blogging by!
