SEM New Chapter Blog Hop

We are hopping over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles this weekend to celebrate some new design team members!

If you are arriving here from Felicity's blog you are in the right place :)

Our challenge was to create something that represented a "new chapter" in our lives.  I thought I would share with you a layout I did of my precious baby girl.  Each child God has blessed me with has entered me into a "new chapter".  My first born introduced me to motherhood.  My second introduced me to being a Mommy of multiple children, making life fun, busier and much more full.  My third child I lost and that baby introduced me to grief I had never experienced before and the love and comfort of my Creator.  My baby girl introduced me to a "new chapter" of being a Mommy to girls.  I love each one.

Here is a layout of my baby girl . . .

The papers I used for the flower were not actually scrapbook pages but from a book.  When I had my first child we did not know what we were having and my grandmother gave me this baby book that had all these girly colors and pages in it.  I had a boy so I started cutting up the book to use on my Mommy and me scrapbook pages.  I used these same pages to cut flower petals and inked the edges to give some illusion of scrapbook papers :)

I also used the new Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge to make this super cute paper baby shoe - wouldn't this be great as a decoration in your baby's room (my daughter is in love with it and it now sits on her bookshelf).  I was thinking they would be perfect as baby shower favors filled with candy.

The hop starts today, September 28 and ends Sunday September 30th  11:59pm PDT. Remember in order to qualify for our grand prize you must be a follower of SEM and leave a comment on all the blogs.

So, what are you waiting for...hop to it!
