My layouts for the week - updated with layout 4 (post 29)

I really need to catch up on a TON of professional photos for the different books. I think that's my goal for the week, doing 1-2 a day. In fact, I'll just update this thread with each one so I don't have to start a new thread for a "simple" layout. (simple or not, definitely time consuming!)

and if anyone is bored out there, I'm looking for a New York Yankees cut file for the George cartridge (Design Studio) for my next layout. The last time I searched for a specific cut file, it took me well over an hour!

Without further ado, here's Jack's 6 months Picture People pictures. Those are puppy eyelets on the bottom of the left page, totally forgot I had them! I wish I had something else to add on that side, but I'm just drawing a blank. It's for his professional photos book, so I don't sweat the details as much as I do for the baby and family books.

I'm thinking I should take a better picture, you can't really see the puppies so well. Smile

and I found the .cut file, just waiting to hear back from the woman who created it (you have to request her .cut files). so I guess I won't be doing that layout tonight, maybe tomorrow.

I will take the pictures tomorrow. Smile How many puppies do you want? PM me your address and I'll send you some. They came in a set, no idea of the maker. But I have plenty of them!

Where did you find those brads?!? They are sooooooo cute! I love these pages. Simple, yet they let the pictures shine.

Beautiful pics, beautiful boy! I can't believe you stay caught up on all of the kids professional pics. It truly is a feat.

Oh, I'm not caught up on ALL of the kids, just Jack. Look for Natalie layouts this week.

Great pages Gwen! Those puppies add a lot to the page and are so cute!

I like the second page, too. The colors really draw your eye to the picture and all of Jack's cuteness. Smile

thanks everyone!

now, here are two pages from Natalie's book. I have a quandary though - it's two pages, but the way the book is, 9 months is on the left side and there's a space for one page. I guess I can go out of order and put 11 months next to it (as that's a 1 pager) and do the two page 10 months next. I entertained splitting the pages up but would rather keep them together.

oh, and I cut the little reindeer with paper dolls then cut the dragon out of the cream to get the spots to put on the deer. Wink the dragon spots were perfect!

I got a card order (for my photo card business) that needs to take precedence now. I have the 11 month layout ready to go plus I need to revisit my Yankee kids layout. There's never enough time in the day is there? Heck, I should have gone to bed 2 hours ago! (the layouts have been finished for over an hour, I've been screwing around lurking on the drama on the photgraphy board)

These are all fantastic Gwen. I especially love the last one you did for Natalie's 10 months. The little deer on there is perfect.

I can't believe I haven't responded to this yet. The layouts are great, and of course it helps when you have totally adorable subjects. I love the way you did the January on the first page and those puppies rock. Jack is adorable and Natalie... She is gorgeous. Love those smiles.

Natalie's deer page is ADORABLE! It makes me melt. It's seriously perfect!

I love the colors of her 11 month page are perfect. I love the partial frame out of the polka dot paper.

thanks!

and that partial frame is only partial because that's all I had left on that sticker sheet. Lol I thought it looked okay that way though so I went with it. Smile

omg! I missed Natalie's pages!! The reindeer is from Paper Dolls?? That's the cutest ever! My friend happens to be letting me borrow that this week...gotta go make some of those cuts. It matches the layout absolutely perfectly.
