9 Months of Growth

Hello all! I have a new layout to share! I hope to be getting to some more creating that I can share soon!

This is a layout documenting my growth through my 4th child's pregnancy (he'll be 5 in a little over a month, but who's counting...). I ended up leaving this layout pretty simple since there are so many photos. I started by cutting a full page background in a similar color to my background. I cut that in half and glued it to the center of my pages. I then took strips of striped patterned paper (which ended up being mostly covered) and added those to either side. I then splattered a few colors of ink over my background. I stamped the little labels for the stats and then wrote them out. The number in my title is a chipboard number, the rest was cut with my Cricut. I finished off the page with some star stickers and enamel accents.

I'm entering this in the current challenge at Challenge YOUrself: use ink or spray and include a photo of yourself. I am also entering it in the November 19 challenge at The Studio Challenges: create your background.
