Baby Layouts

A few weeks ago I showed the mini album that I made for when I become a grandma.
We are now in countdown mode and I decided to make a larger album.

These pages took me quite a bit of time, I tend to overthink and pull everything out 
and before I know workspace is a diaster zone....
Do you do the same thing?

Let me show you the first four pages I've made...

This is the first time I've ever made a layout this big...
12 X 12 seemed so big but once I got started it
really was the same as doing a mini album,
just making everything bigger..

A closeup of the cute paper that I used...
Baby Steps from Simple Lines.....I also added more
embellishments because my motto is..
"More Is More"

The second page will hold a bigger picture and maybe some mementos....
I love the owls on this paper line, perfect no matter if the baby is a girl or boy..

On the third page I decided to paint a white piece of cardstock...
only problem - the paper curls from the paint
but should straighten out over time in the album....

The colors on this paper are so soft and weathered..

The fourth page is ready to hold a couple of pictures and perhaps
some journaling...Crystals favorite color is yellow so I added
a flower that I made with some left over scrapbook
paper from another project..

and of course another owl!

This weekend, I hope to get the album completed
and make a special something to welcome the baby..
Crystal reads my blog and I can't say too much right now..

I'm linking to these parties...

These pages are so beautiful! I have done mostly 12 x 12 pages & would like to make more little ones. What a wonderful idea to make the pages ahead of time to add the pictures to later!! I think that is a plan for the twins coming in idea alert!! Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Once you do a 12x 12 you will be addicted.
These pages turned out wonderful, adorable details. Can't wait to see the baby pictures in these pages.
