In the meantime, I have my Elle's Studio September projects to show you!
I love creating little bitty tags for my galleries because they work so well with the beautiful details on Elle's products.
Now I'm all ready for a birthday party:)
This next layout is an ode to my new favorite spot on the island of Manhattan (well, second favorite--I have to tell you about my actual favorite one soon!)--16 Handles.
If you're not familiar with 16 Handles, go to the Upper West Side immediately. If that isn't possible, just imagine this: 16 pumps of delicious frozen yogurt in flavors from chocolate to pomegranate, and every topping under the sun. Add to this the fact that every single topping is kosher (including the gummy bears, which are never ever kosher--trust me on this) and I'm pretty much in heaven there:)
My last layout for September is probably my favorite, because it documents a story that makes me smile whenever I think of it.
The journaling reads: At your 12 week ultrasound, I first got to see your little personality. You were fast asleep in the beginning, and no amount of coughing, turning or pushing woke you up. It took a full 40 minutes until you woke up! It looks like you inherited your mommy's penchant for sleeping very deeply. After that you didn't want to turn around and get in the right position, so I wound up with an hour-long appointment! The technician commented that you seemed like quite the stubborn baby. I didn't think it was possible at that moment to love you more, but I did. Can't wait to meet you in a few months, my little stubborn sleepyhead! Love, Mommy.
I don't think I'll ever get tired of being able to sign letters as "Mommy," especially after all of the waiting and wondering along the way:)
Since I didn't want to paste the card with the ultrasound to the actual layout, I created a pocket out of a spare page protecter and sewed the pocket to the page. I hope to do this a lot with baby memorabilia!
Make sure you check out the Inspiration Gallery to see the beautiful layouts the other gals whipped up! Susan Weinroth is the guest designer this month, and her layouts are so much fun!
And since I can use some cooking company these days--what are YOU cooking up this week?
