Lifebook: Nursery spread

This is the first 2-page spread for Ava's lifebook. It's also my first attempt at scrapbooking. I learned a lot of little lessons working on this page so hopefully, the next spread will go a bit faster. I know that I like working with fabric and will continue to use fabric throughout the lifebook. The fabric from this page is the same as Ava's bedding.

To Lisa and Tate:
I actually just sewed the fabric directly to the paper. I have an embroidery sewing machine so I have a number of fun stiches available to me such as hearts and even lettering. I also sewed the photos directly to both the fabric and to the paper. Worked great.

Awesome Michele! Both you and Donna have the talent! I wish I had a sewing machine that embroidered!

Michele,
Your pages came out just beautiful! LOVE how you incorporated the bedding fabric and the embroidery into the layout. That makes it so much more special. Your graphic designer eye must have really came in handy when planning the layout...I always have a total mental block when it comes to planning. It takes me forever to come up with the layout!
