Growing

The Challenge:
Use one of the many free downloads at CK blog.

I decided to use the cute alpha designed by Kim Hughes.  I printed them on white cardstock, cut them out, used the cuts as a template to trace onto patterned paper, and cut those out to add to my layout.  I used a fatter pen to do the tracing and cut them out with a slight margin, so the pen lines added to the charm of the letters.  They are super cute and fit this layout of my nephew well.

This layout actually started as something quite different.  I had another photo in mind and a totally different title picked out too.  When I was digging through my papers, I came upon these rulers and an idea was born.  I was actually wondering what I was going to do with these three photos and I thought the rulers would be the perfect way to tell of how quickly a new baby grows.  I really like the direction this layout took and these three photos are now scrapped and in the book!
