Play day with this guy!

Hello there!  Is it raining where you are today?  It has been gray and cloudy and rainy here all day long.  Perfect weather for the ducks and to make a scrapbook page or two!  Since I am neither a duck or a duck owner I decided to take advantage of that second thing!  I have been working on one scrapbook page all day long!  Today's page features another of my adorable grand kiddos! I am lucky enough to get to have a full day's worth of play date with this handsome little fellow at least once a week.  I snapped these cute photos on our most recent play date.  This sweet little guy is such a serious little baby!  You have to work kind of hard to get him to crack a smile, but man oh man when he does...I am a goner!!   He is such a sweet baby.  Take a look:

Is he not just adorable?!  He just melts me! Ok, on to the details!  I went with a very traditional yellow, blue and white baby boy color scheme.  I did a little bit of stamping in the background of both the large white piece of card stock and the blue one.   I matted all of my photos against white card stock.  I wanted to carry the yellow throughout so I used it in lots of spots.  I used my Cricut to cut out and piece together that cute little baby and his teddy bear.  I decided to mix it up with my photos. I absolutely love the look of a black and white picture. This one was so cute in color though, so I compromised!

Here is a closer look at the baby that I pieced together and his little sidekick. I find that it takes a lot of time to make these,  but I think it is so worth it.  They really just add that little something extra to a page.  I also used a border punch and created a lace looking border that I tucked under each side of the blue card stock.

I made a little banner embellishment by layering several banner pieces and then sewed through them for a little bit of extra visual detail.  I used layered circles to create a journaling spot and added little polka dots to each scallop. I added a few yellow hearts to tie everything together. 

I created a title using some Thickers from my stash.  They are puffy so add a little extra dimension.  I roughed up the edges of my card stock for even more dimension.

I really enjoyed making this page!  That baby's sweet smile kept me grinning the whole time!

I am off to clean up my scrapping mess!  It kind of looks like someone picked up my room and shook it like a snow globe in there! LOL
