Kimi's Baby Shower Blog Hop!

Welcome to Kimi's Baby Shower Blog Hop! If you are here for the Happy Halloween Blog Hop, scroll down one post (or stay and check out this hop too). If you are just happening upon my page this lovely fall morning and you want to start the hop from the beginning, head over to Pam's Blog to start from the beginning!

As some of my regular readers may know, I am blessed with 2 beautiful daughters who are now 5 and 2, and my scraproom is filled with many, many pink papers. So when I heard that Kimi was having a girl I was excited to get to play with more pink paper! I decided to do a first feeding layout because those are some of my favorite photos of my own daughters. The faces that babies make when tasting real "food" for the first time usually run the gamut from displeasure to thoughtfulness to joy in mere seconds so it's a fun time to be camera ready! I made sure there was plenty of room for photos, of course!


The large pink block in the center of the layout can hold either 3 vertical 4" x 6" photos, or 6 horizontal 4" x 3" photos. Then I added another space for a horizontal 4" x 6" photo on the side.



I made this mat a pocket so that the journaling about baby's first foods can be tucked away a bit so the focus is on those great photos where it belongs! The adorable baby girl is from the Cricut Baby Steps cartridge and I used a Peachy Keen Stamp for her face. Both the spoon she is holding and the spoon in the top left of the layout are cut from silver mirror paper (which is really hard to tell in the photos).


I also used the Baby Steps Cartridge to cut the title "Fun Food" and hand wrote the word "with" with my silver glitter pen so it now reads "Fun with Food"! I had so much fun creating this layout and I hope Kimi is as thrilled with it as I am!

We all have a message for Kimi... use this letter - S - and continue through the blogs to get the full message. Leave your message on the last blog for a chance at some awesome Blog Candy!

The next stop in this hop is Martha's Blog and before you hop away, make sure you are a follower of my blog and leave me a comment and you will be entered to win a great Blog Candy prize on my blog too! I'm giving a super sweet party favor to one lucky hopper - a goody bag with the stuff to create a mini album for yourself!
