The First Mummy Month – Week 2

Hi there

Sorry for the hiatus, we’ve had family visiting, and although we all had a fabuloso time, i’ve not been near my computer for a week. Refreshing in a way, but i have to admit the prospect of opening my emails was a little daunting this evening.

Today, another scrapbook layout!…

Last week i shared a layout about my first week as a new mum, and explained that i documented little snippets of life throughout the first month so that i would never forget these first few weeks of our new life.

I’ve got Week 2 to share with you today. By the way, i didn’t scrap these weeks in order. I printed out the 4 sets of photos and then grabbed which ever one was more appealing or inspiring. I seem to get more milage that way, in fact, i don’t think i have ever scrapped chronologically – it just seems like another unnecessary limitation in my eyes. So i started with week 4, then moved onto week 1, then week 2 and then week 3 to finish. By the time I had done week 4 and 1, I decided that week 2 should have a different style, a different ‘feel’. I still wanted to use quite bright colours, but this time decided to limit the colour palate, and also i chose to distress some edges to create a more grungy look.

I had quite a lot to say for this week, so i wasn’t able to squeeze everything in by using my typewriter { 🙁 } or indeed by writing it myself so i printed the journaling instead.

Oh, and i think i love using the enamel accents to make the bullet points – how cute and easy!!

Thanks for looking, another two more layouts to come soon.
