MCT Scrappy Monday Layout

Hello friends. It is time for another Scrappy Monday at My Creative Time. We were asked to make a layout of any size and include ONE picture (I totally messed up and left a spot for two pictures and didn't realize I had messed up until I was finished and didn't have time to make something else). We were also asked to include buttons.

The basic idea for this layout came about when Emma's What's Growing On stamp set came out. I couldn't help but think of how much a pregnant woman grows (especially in the 3rd Trimester).

Here is a little closer look at this cute 3rd Trimester image that comes from the 9 Months Cricut Lite cartridge. I had a super sweet bloggy friend give it to me as a gift and I'm SO in love with it! THANK YOU!

The face on the girl is made using the Funshine Faces Side View stamp set by Peachy Keen Stamps. I also added a button and some hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Here is a closer looks at the removable journaling tag:

This tag slides in and out. That way I can put the details of how much growth was happening without EVERYONE who looks at the scrapbook seeing the details. For the tag I used Emma's XL Label Die, for the stitching her XL Label Border stamps, and for the sentiment What's Growing On?

And last of all here is a close up of the scale:

This scale is also a cut from the 9 Months Cricut Lite cartridge. The sweet little baby feet and the 'weight' sentiment come from My Creative Time's All Star Baby stamp set.

Make sure to stop by Emma's blog and see what she and the other DT members did using ONLY ONE picture and buttons. Have a great Memorial Day. Hugs- Glora

  1. This is so cute...although weight gain and pregnancy was a sore spot. I put on so much weight with my daughter that my doc and hubby would laugh every time I stepped on the scale. I swear...I didn't lose an ounce after she was born. Then I gained more weight with my son...but that came off right away. My kids were in school before I lost that first pregnancy weight.ARG...Lee-Ann :)
