Scrapbook Saturday: Special Day

Our children's birthdays are always such special events to us moms, aren't they? For this week's edition of "Scrapbook Saturday," designer Melissa Craig has made a very fun layout to celebrate her son's 15th birthday. What fun! Melissa used digital paper from the "Party Animals" set, along with the sweet birthday cake image and a sentiment from the "Sweet Treats" set to create this layout. The black base and colorful, overlapping frames behind the photo of her son combined with the polka dots in the paper give this a fun and funky feel that is perfect for a teenage layout. Beautifully made, and something her son will do doubt look back on with joy in years to come!

A Baby Shower

Babies are blessings from above, and getting ready for their arrivals can make for such exciting times! Although we celebrate many occasions throughout life, I personally look forward to the births of little ones, and the showers to celebrate them, the most. Here is a darling invitation that designer Denise Goeldner created to celebrate the pending arrival of one little one. She used one of the precolored images and a sentiment from the "For Baby" set to create this. The sweet little "vintage" touches she added to this -- the embossed rose background, the satin ribbon and jewels, and of course those gorgeous flowers -- make this an invitation worth saving. Something special to add to a baby's scrapbook, for sure!
