My son turned 6 this summer and I'm on this kick to scrap his baby pictures. I had these taken on his first birthday at JC Penney's. I wasn't very happy with these at the time but they've grown on me. They just seem so dark. I was hoping for something brighter but they used that black velvet backdrop. Nick was learning to walk so it wasn't easy for us to keep him in line while we did this. I vaguely remember telling the girl to 'get it over with' because it was hot in that little studio.
Oh well, thank goodness for Echo Park and their awesome paper lines. I hoarded this one for over a year (maybe longer....) and finally scrapped them.
Photo strip is from the OC Fair. I believe this is the February SC Kit - the one with the stupid 'to the moon and back' stamp that everyone just had to have making this kit a hard one to snag. But I have it and after all these months, I finally pulled it out and used it.
This is also full of hand stitching. The Ampersand is an Amy Tan rubon that I stitched over. The rest is just picking out parts of the maze pattern on the paper and stitching over it in coordinating colors. After going through my floss box.....
