Uncle and Aunt Scrapbook Page
Here's a layout of my brother-in-law and sister-in-law holding the baby WAY back when she was just 3 months old. (Seems so long ago.)
This page came together in such a fated way. I found this patterned paper in my stash and said, "Well, I'll use it for a picture of the baby and her uncles." So then I had these pictures and I had some letter stickers in my stash that fit with the color scheme of the patterned paper so that I could spell out "aunt" because my sister-in-law was in the pictures, too. And then I had the chevron patterned paper sitting out on my desk, and it seemed to fit. Same with the heart patterned paper underneath the bottom picture. I grabbed the yellow cardstock from my paper stash, and then I found the dark green cardstock in a recently discovered 8.5 x 11 paper pad, and wouldn't you know it? The dark green fit with the color scheme of the "uncle" paper! The "adorable" tag and the flower were in my random embellishments bag, along with the journaling tag.
The journaling reads: "There's no turning back now." That's what I said to an expecting Pat and Meg after Daphne cried while they held her. Daphne forgot that she had met Aunt Meg and Uncle Pat before - and that was probably because she slept through that visit.
