a layout: cecily's dedication

This is one of the pages I made on Cecily's dedication for her babybook. Her babybook is going to be a MONSTER if I ever finish it. It will certainly have to be in volumes, and it probably won't be finished until she's 30. Anyway, this is just the first page with her life verse on it. The other pages I make will include the blessing I wrote for her that Levi prayed over her and the little gathering we had with our family afterwards.

Scrapbooking her dedication is something that I've been putting off because there's so much I want to include, but I think just starting it helped a lot. I know I could just trim it down and not add all the pages and journaling that I mentioned, but I'm not really a big fan of trimming down. I'd rather end up with a huge babybook.

I'm not usually a fan of woodgrain, but I really love this paper I received in my May Studio Calico kit. It's those pretty blue flowers. I wanted to make sure I didn't cover them up so I went with the boards on the paper.

I made that blue floral strip with a stencil and the ink dauber I got in my kit. I was actually just playing around with it for practice and was going to throw it out, but when I saw it next to the paper on my table, I loved how they looked together!

I stamped out that whole Bible verse like a crazy person because I love stamping so much. I find it so therapeutic. And I love those stamps. I want to stamp entire books with them. Maybe I'll start stamping out my blog posts. That's a really good idea. ;)
