Look Whoos Here Layout!

Today I want to share the gift I made for Sarah. I had to fall back on one of my all time favorite baby layouts from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge! THIS is not the layout I gave her, this is one we made at a team meeting a while back. I don't think I ever posted it before, so here you go!

 It was fashioned after one featured in one of our Idea Books, only they used pink and purple for a little girl - and she was 2! I love the white on white overlay with random color behind some of the openings. It's a subtle look with great impact!

And I love the owl - he's just so cute!

And one of my favorite parts are the glitter paper balloons with glitter gems and epoxy bubbles on top! Simply add a puddle of liquid glass to your balloon and then add the gems for a sturdy, permanent stick! (The balloons are from the Artist Cricut cartridge.)

The title actually cuts out as "look whoos here", but I cut off the "here" to add the number "1" at the bottom of the page.

Here is the page out of the Artbooking booklet - pg 84.


Now Sarah's home is more rustic than bright and glittery. So I tried to modify this layout to fit in with her decor but still have a little bit of celebratory sparkle!

Here's the cute little owl again, only this time a little bigger and I popped up his feather layer for more dimension, since I have a beautiful, dimensional shadow box frame to work with!

I tied some of our base and bling charms onto the ribbon around the photo mat just for a little something extra!

And here's those festive glitter paper balloons with green epoxy bubbles and clear sparkles on them. WAIT - "clear" sparkles? They look BLUE to me! You know what? We're BOTH right! I used clear sparkles and colored them with our ShinHan Touch Twin alcohol markers! Cool, huh?

And this time I left my title in tact. But to create a little added dimension, I used two layers - slate grey and whisper grey and just offset them slightly to create a shadow effect. Then I cut the title out a third time in silver glitter paper and trimmed off the "look" and "here" to pop up the "whoos" for even MORE dimension!

I love how it turned out - but more importantly, Sarah loved it too! I was so honored to be a part of her special celebration! 

I love you Sarah and can't wait to see what God is going to do in and through this very special child!
