First Photo Ultrasound Layout

Happy National Scrapbook Day! Thanks for coming to check out my Pebbles NSD project. When you're done checking out my layout make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the list of other Pebble's DT members participating in the hop, and details on how to enter to win the Pebbles NSD giveaway.
For NSD, I thought I'd create a baby layout.  Did you know that I didn't start scrapbooking until my youngest was over a year old? Occasionally I go back in time and play catch-up on photos from before I scrapbooked.  The very first photo of my youngest is a pretty important photo, and deserved a page.



 Pebbles Special Delivery was the perfect collection for scrapping this photo.  At the time we didn't know he would be a boy, but since I scrapped this almost 6 years later, I had the luxury of knowing to do a very boyish page.


 My ultrasound photo was fairly thin, so I used a photo overlay not only as a design element, but as extra protection for the photo.


 I built the rest of the layout from journaling cards.  I added a few extra stickers, rub ons, and embellishments to the cards, but overall I kept the layout pretty clean and simple. 


 Oh! and I can't finish without pointing out those Thickers. They may just be my most favorite Thickers ever. There's just something about them that I love.

Now, I know you'll want to check out what the rest of the team has created for today. Below the sneak peek you'll find each of the designers names.  Just click on a name to be taken to their NSD project.
