I've recently finished the third of three baby-related scrapbook spreads. Once I completed the last bit of stamping on the last one and sat back to look at the three, I realized that all three of these babies were 21 inches at birth. How funny is that?

I printed the photos in sepia for all three in order to let the papers set the color-schemes. (Last names are blacked out for privacy where applicable.)

21-Inch Baby #1: The Nephew
This layout is "Elegant Context" (pgs. 16-17) in Cherish (Close to My Heart book).

One of my favorite parts of this spread is the little footprints stamped on the vellum tag. So cute! Eek!

21-Inch Baby #2: My Best Friend's Boy
When my best friend had her first baby, she waited until he was born to find out his gender. However, they had a gender-neutral name picked out that s/he would get either way. Brind'Amour, French for "sprig/bit of love," is also the last name of the captain-at-the-time of the Carolina Hurricanes. Adorable for a girl and rockin' for a boy, right? So I started this spread the day she went into the hospital to give birth, still not knowing whether he'd be a girl or a boy.

This layout is a modification of "Simple Contrast" (pgs. 28-29) in Cherish.

21-Inch Baby #3: The Irish Twin
One day to the year after Brind'Amour was born, my best friend gave birth to Eulalia Frances. So that means big brother Brindy and little sister Eulie are Irish twins! And having two nephews, I was so excited to finally get to do a cute little girl layout! Hooray for pink!

This layout is "Leading Lady" (pgs. 16-17) in Imagine (Close to My Heart book).

Great pages! When I looked at your pages. I first, noticed the pictures and then the beautiful layout and embellishments. Which is the way I like it! Also, I have a 12 year old boy who will still ask me to sit with him and look through his scrapbook. (Just something for you to look forward to.)

I wish I had a friend that would scrapbook my kids pics.  My own scrapbooking skills are pretty pathetic.  Very well done!

croonqueen -- the Close to My Heart books ("Cherish" and "Imagine") have totally changed my life as far as scrapbooking goes. I know I sound like an endorsement, but I'm not even a consultant or anything--just a really big fan! They give you blueprints to make each page, then recipes for how to cut up the paper to make each spread. So you can just worry about being creative with the papers and embellishments. Then as you get better you can modify their layouts as needed, or make up your own once you get the hang of it.

Absolutely beautiful layouts - love the sepia photos against the pastel color schemes - - very soft & elegant.

Scrapping, sewing, crafting, fishing, dogs, cats and turtles - it's all here
