Sonoma is another paper that I find very versatile. I have used it for family photos, heritage photos and here I used it to scrapbook our trip to the Pioneer Village. This layout also uses the pewter mini medley and pins (plus some older accessories from my stash).
The right page also has a hidden book created out of flip flaps- this holds a lot more of the photos from the trip and by placing in the hidden book I don’t end up cluttering my page. Below is a close up of the book coming out from behind the paper. I created the pocket for it by stacking foam tape on some paper to pop it up- super easy idea out of Magic!
I made this layout a few weeks ago at my retreat weekend- LOVED how it turned out!! The Elemental paper is so VERSATILE!!! I have discovered that I love scrapbooking professional photos- so nice AND for once I am even in the photos!
This layout says Baby Makes 4 for the title but the fourth member of your family (my 7 year old Austin) is missing from most of the photos because he just did not want to cooperate that day- but we did get one with his little hands on my belly (see photo at the top of the layout). Now that his sister has arrived he is usually more than happy to pose with her in pictures!
I had no room for journaling once I had added photos so I used foam tape behind a photo and added some hidden journaling.
Other fun stuff used in this layout- Elemental Dimensional Elements, Flutter paper shapes and the cork colour ready alphabet.
