Scrapping Baby Photos

Lately I've been scrapping my son's baby photos and wanted to share some layouts.
This one is of him taking a bubble bath in the kitchen sink. Scrapped with Delightful Dreams by Echo's Scraps.

These photos date from the first summer he could toddle around in the garden "helping" his father. He was fascinated by all the growing things. Helped pick tomatoes and when the first slices went on a sandwich, he had to give it a try. Look at that expression. Scrapped with Delightful Dreams by Echo's Scraps.

Jeremy is always my shining star. Scrapped these pics with Royal Garden by Sweetmade.

At times every baby seems like a little queen or king holding court with his/her subjects. Here's Jeremy on his second Christmas holding court with his grandfather and aunt. Scraped with SweetMade's Fantasia.

When you're a baby, every day is an adventure, every place a fantasy land. So what better to scrap my little explorer with than Fantasia by SweetMade?

July Mega Kit at Scrapping Whispers

The designers at Scrapping Whispers have a great summer camping mega kit for you this month. Here's a preview:

Well, that's just the Qps. For some reason, blogger isn't taking the gif for the whole kit. Will try again later. Meanwhile, it can be seen here:

Big news! Vintage Vixens Coming Soon

My dear friend, Echo, of Echo's Scraps, and I have teamed up to form Vintage Vixens, a collaborative scrapping team. Start looking for the logos seen below to find us. Right now we are working on getting set up at ScrappersZone and Scrapping Whispers. We already have 3 kits ready to go! We're very excited about working together and think we are producing some kits you will enjoy, so watch for us, please.

A few things you can find at ScrapHead

My two new kits as described in last post and here also are two great kits by JadensMama!

New kits!

My first go at a masculine kit. I started to call this Jack Of All Trades which is way too long so shortened it to Jack. Six papers and lots of elements.

A bracket book to fit the Basic Grey chipboard bracket book. Made with my art Nouveau Afternoon kit. There is also a cover page not shown in preview.

Both available in my store, D'Ambrosio Arts at Scraphead, Scrapping Whispers, and ScrappersZone

More Layouts!

Had great fun with this lovely kit by Ashalee Wall called Giving Love. Wonderful burgundy and pink, I think this was intended for Valentine's Day but it can do so much more. Here I made a layout showing my parents' 3 grandsons when they were dressed in fancy duds for their graduation photos. From left to right: my son, Jeremy; brother's adopted son, Jason, and his son, Bryan.

Wouldn't this make a great cover for a romantic album? Scrapped with Giving Love by Ashalee Wall.

Below is Love Is Patient - a layout for vintage photos scrapped with Giving Love by Ashalee Wall.

Just a little love note scrapped with Giving Love by Ashalee Wall.

My nieces scrapped with Giving Love by Ashalee Wall.

Vintage photo scrapped with Christmas In July by Sweetmade. It's a beautiful kit with lovely blues and neutral and darling little birds. She says this is working towards her Christmas kit.

Grandson's first Christmas scrapped with Christmas In July by SweetMade.

and inside of a card I made for my SIL using Sweetmade's Christmas In July. Love those birds!

Some recent layouts

This is a layout with photo of my son at one month for a hybrid bird coaster album by Maya Road. Scrapped with An Affair To Remember by Ashalee Wall. You will see that I love d this kit.

Here I am as a baby with my paternal grandparents. Scrapped with An Affair To Remember by Ashalee Wall for a hybrid album.

My baby J scrapped with An Affair To Remember by Ashalee Wall. Very versatile kit!

Me and hubby scrapped with An Affair TO Remember by Ashalee Wall.

Below are two layouts done with Ashalee Wall's cute Beach Get-Away kit. The little boy in the first one is my father!

ere's another father's day layout made with My Dad by SweetMade. I tried Hummie's skewed photo technique but forgot to do the stroke around the photos for edges! Photos of my father in his major roles.

This is a Father's Day layout with journaling about my father. Scrapped with My Dad by SweetMade.

Bad, bad, blogger!

Yes, I know, I've been a bad, bad blogger. These last few weeks have been frantic! Working on the house (still working on the house), working on 3 mega kits for the stores, working on a collaborative venture too, which I will tell you about shortly. I'm hoping after this weekend, that things will settle back down. Thought I was going to get a lot done earlier this week, but we've had electrical storms nearly every day so I haven't been able to stay on the computer. Just bear with me and I'll get back to weekly writing prompts and freebies.
