The Sign Layout

Well.. I did it!!! I am now over my goal 4 layouts in 3 days, which is great because it means I have an extra day (we all know how that goes) I know Im gonna end up scrapping one day and falling behind my goal but to be able to say Im ahead of it.. even if it won't last.. is awesome news! Hopefully thow.. I stay on track and keep up my good work.

This is another layout of hospital pics of Jayden I used the Get Picky August Sketch #11 for this layout. I liked the pleated ribbon on my other layout so much I decided to try it again. I have issues.. when I learn something new I do it non stop for awhile lol.. but I think this will be the last layout with pleated ribbon for awhile. All the little paper flowers I had in my stash some are held on with brads (and I used my Big Bite II to punch the layout) and others are glued on with an irock gem in the middle.. (I told you I have trouble letting go of new things lol).

As far as the background paper.. well I made that myself.. not too bad eh? I used some of the paper scraps from my last layout (with the hang line of onsies) and used the onsie cut remains as a stencil and then I used pink & purple chalk in to fill in the onsies. Since I have onsies all over I figured what better thing to journal on than a onsie.. I cut this one out with Life's A party at 3 1/4 inches and popped it up with.. yup you guessed it.. pop dots lol. "The Sign" is also cut from Life's A Party the lower case are 3/4 inch and the capitals are 1 inch. I outlined the title with white scribbles 3d paint to help it stand out a bit. And to finish the page off I put a little pink button in the top corner with pink bakers twine tied in a knot and a purple button over my pink bow also with pink bakers twine.. but I tied this bakers twine into a bow.

I am entering this layout into the following challenges:
