New to SB board just wanted to share first layout in a year

I finally got a chance to sit down and scrap today. I only accomplished on page LOL. But at least I have the baby's started. I wrote a poem for him as though it sounds like we don't know he's a he. But I like the whole "it's a boy" to be reserved for the actual birth page.

The poem says....

A baby is coming oh what could it be?
Will we call you he or will you be she?
For now we will wait to find out patiently
And hope you arrive very strong and healthy
But grow now my precious, sweet, little baby
I know when you're ready you'll come to meet me.

Yeah I pulled out a bunch of embellishments and 3D stuff, but when it came down to it, simplicity was the key to this one. You can't really see the pics are triple matted in the photo, but there is a tiny thin mat of pink between the yellow and the blue.

Haha, I just noticed the shadow on the bottom right corner. I don't have a scanner so I have to take a picture w/ my dig camera instead. The shadow is my pregnant belly ROFL!

Nice! Good for you for getting started early. I wish I would've done that. Now I'm just going to start a bin & put all my things to scrapbook in it until I actually have some time to get around to it!
