As promised, here are the layouts I've created this month for Scrapbook Supplies Online, using Echo Park's This and That Graceful collection. And of course, having such pretty girly papers inspired me to create pretty girly layouts. The first layout was inspired by a layout I've seen somewhere and I thought I'd pinned, but was not in my scrapbooking board. I love, love, love the huge banner, and had to create a version of it myself.

The other two layouts have baby photos, and with them, I have officially finished the 0-6 months photo album.... 5 years too late? Well, better late than never, and I am happy to have a finished album at last!!!! The second layout was very simple to create, I saw the patterned paper with rectangular die cuts, and instead of cutting them, decided to use them as the base for a layout. Love how that turned out! The pictures were not great, but I still wanted to keep the memories of the walks in our complex carrying our daughter in her "moti" and our favourite restaurant there, where we spent lots of time until it was closed (and that's the only pic I have of it).

The third layout has one of my favourite pictures, our daughter with the lady that was then her babysitter. On that day, she carried her on her back, African way (though women do the same thing in Peru, and my mother-in-law carried my husband on her back, so it's sort of keeping family tradition over two different continents!!!!). Even though we have both moved from Libya for different reasons, we still keep in touch with her, because she is a lovely person, and I am happy I finally have this very important picture in my daughter's album. This way she will always remember the person who first took care of her, read her stories and played with her, apart from mom and dad.

And I had fun creating a little step-by-step video of how I put this layout together. It is only one minute long, so it won't take much of your time. Hope you enjoy it!!!

If you have already fallen in love with this fabulous collection, you can find it HERE. I will be coming back with some cards using the same collection next week, don't forget to come and have a look!
