I made a layout about the baby quilt I made for my baby girl. I have made special quilts for all three of my girls, and it is one of my favorite traditions.
When I thought about putting this layout together, I knew I wanted to make the background mimic the quilt I made. I first thought about using different pattern papers that matched my quilt, but with all the different patterns and colors, it looked a little busy. I also really loved the Fancy Pants Joy Parade paper. The pink matches the color in the quilt, and one of the fabric patterns has + on it just like the pattern paper. Win win. I cut up the Fancy Pants paper, and adhered it to a navy blue striped pattern paper (from an older kit). Then I machine stitched in diagonals across the squares, just like I did for my quilt. I mounted my photos on a piece of aqua paper from the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day 6×6 paper pad, and adhered it to the layout. I added the title using one of my all time favorite alphas: Pinkfresh Studio letters (included in the November add-on), and the love from the American Crafts Darling Hazelwood thickers. Then I added the enamel triangles and phrase stickers to finish off my layout.
I hope you like my layout, and are inspired to create. Thanks for stopping by!

Journaling is a superb way to record your memories and feelings you have to the events in the photos.
