Two layouts to share

Hello!  I'm just popping in quickly to share two layouts I made with a Paper Bakery Kit.  These were mostly made with leftovers, and I love how they came together.

The first layout is the first photo of my three babies together in the hospital, when they first met Brielle.  Its a shame that Azaria has her eyes closed, but it's such a scrap-worthy moment.  I believe that the memories are often more important than the photos, and just because a photo isn't perfect, it still should be scrapped.

I love the Simple Stories chipboards in the kit:

The gold starbursts were created with the exclusive stencil in the kit.

The second layout is about our Midwife at hospital, Catlin.  Because I had to have a C Section, I had to travel two hours to our Region's base hospital.  Catlin was the midwife that attended the birth, and she was fantastic.  The measuring tape is the real tape that was used to measure Brielle's head:

I love that the Amy Tangerine paper has watercolour features on it.

I fussy cut the flowers out of the paper, and then layered them, some with dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking
Melissa :)
