MWM Amethyst #8/ Authentique April Sketch

Authentique and combined forces for the MWM. Kristy Lee did a stunning job with the April sketch and I just had to steal Blissful (my favorite Authentique collection) that day.  Because I hadn't picked up Blissful yet, I decided to use Uncommon for the mojo.

Since I have no way to make hexagons in a timely matter, I took inspiration from Misty's absolutely stunning take on the layout.  This was a little more time consuming then I usually do, but I really loved doing it and enjoy the final look.

MWM Amethyst #7


 The fabulous Kyla Norris was the guest sketcher over on and I absolutely loved both of her sketches!  I decided I need to do some catching up on my baby girls album so I decided to scrap a few pages of her. 

The first sketch was perfect to scrap the pictures my husband took our first day home- of her little hands, feet, toes, and head. I just love seeing how tiny those things are on brand-new babies.  I just love how it turned out and can't wait to add it in her book.

Here is another page to add to baby's book. Looking at this pictures made me kind of sad that she is growing up so fast! Sometimes I wish they could stay little forever.
