Today's weather here in Minnesota made it difficult to choose between finishing a scrapbook page or going outside ... well, I accomplished both!  A good day indeed!
I will be blessed with a 4th grandchild in a few short weeks. I created this page for his baby book:

I've been frustrated in the past with my attempts to scrapbook ultra-sound photos. Let's face it, the black-greenish imaging is difficult to work into the baby boy blue color scheme. So.... here's where I placed the photos ...

Yep ... open the card and there they are!

This page is going to:

The Spring Color Challenge at Heart to Heart. I used these CTMH colors: Sky, Sweet Leaf and Sunkiss Yellow

Challenge 42 at Shopping Our Stash: I used two embossing techniques on this page to create the dots on the photo folder, the striped green paper, and the framing on the base cardstock.

Supplies Used:
Papers and Inks by Close To My Heart
Lettering: Cork Alpha by Close To My Heart
Ribbon, buttons, twine by CTMH
Cricut Cartridge: Art Philosophy
Tape label printed with a Brothers Labeler
Butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch
Border punch by Fiskars
The polka dot paper: see THIS post
The background cardstock was made with Sky Ink and a brayer.
Baby Connor is due on Easter Sunday .... stay tuned for more baby boy pages!
