Layout: Big Brothers, Big Sisters

I haven't meant to neglect my blog, but the fact is, I have been scrapping more lately, and I haven't gotten around to taking time to scan the layouts. I did finally get one of them scanned today. I'll try to do more and get additional layouts uploaded as time permits.

I'm afraid I don't have a list of the papers handy, but the light colored background with tiny dots is actually the back of a Christmas paper with holly on the other side. It pays to turn papers over and see what's on the back.

The lettering and the die-cut of the children playing were cut with the Cricut. The children die-cut is from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge, and so are the letters used for the titles and names. The scrolls were cut using a Sizzix die. I used stamping inks to color the flowers to match the papers, and the bling brads were either from the Target dollar spot, Big Lots, or Tuesday Morning. I bought them a long time ago, so the memory is a big vague on that one.

As for the title, it's because these are the big brothers and sisters of a new baby in the family, and they follow a page of the baby's pictures.

The pictures were taken by their dad. He tie-dyed an old sheet he found in the attic and set up his own photo shoot.
