~Naptime~


Naptime. The word brings a smile to my face. I just love to watch a baby sleeping...Yes, this one will ALWAYS be my baby~
Seriously, is there ANYthing more precious???

My layout is based on this brand new sketch by Helen Croft {I flipped it}:

I used only one piece of cardstock and only one piece of Prima paper for this layout, plus the chipboard journaling block, the letters, the pompom trim and the pebbles. That's it though. No ink, no stitching...maybe I will go back and stitch around the edges with a nice brown thread...

Maybe it was the paper, maybe the sleeping subject but once I got the layout to this point it just seemed complete, enough. But now that I look at it, perhaps a little stitching...what do you think?

This layout is for the September sketch over at Scrap-a-Little so head over and check out what the rest of the design team came up with.

And don't forget to stop by the Cookbookin' blog for a chance to enter our September sketch contest and win this:


Happy Scrapping,

Beautiful! Both the baby and the layout. I might stitch a photo corner in the bottom right hand corner... But it doesn't feel like it's missing anything. I just love stitching. LOL

I don't feel like it's missing anything...but when does adding some stiching ever hurt? lol

I just used your tutorial about how to make pinwheels - am working on a blog post right now ;)
