It's getting late and I am still working on my layout, so I'll post this in case Monica, Linda, or Beth want to post their layouts for today.
Well, I ended up getting so frustrated with my layout that I went to bed, hoping for a fresh perspective in the morning! I guess it serves me right for scrapping after 10pm. I finished it up today, and it wasn't as bad as I thought. I actually like how it came out, although I ended up leaving it really simple just for the sake of getting it done. This is another layout for Elliot's baby album. Confession time: I used a non-CTMH stamp - gasp! I had purchased a set of stamps (Baby Firsts from Stampin' Up) when Elliot was a newborn, and then I never did his baby book, so the stamps have been sitting here unused for four years. Although I discovered the joys of CTMH's clear stamps in the meantime, I felt I should use this set at least once. The pattern is In the Groove from Imagine, and I had to adjust it a bit to accommodate the 12" x 11.5" pages from Elliot's baby album; it's an old CM album. BTW, I know the top left photo is too small. I had already cropped it when I realized that, so I have to get a new print developed. Yet another thing for my to-do list. On a happy note, we only have one more week left of LOAD. I think I'm going to take a long scrapbooking break when January is over - at least a week!
