Another layout + Alice

Today I was reading Cathy's blog and the layout she had made for Aidan's 15th birthday blog post really caught my eye. The fact that she also gave a free digital template for the layout was a huge bonus and I wanted to use it straight away. My layout is a complete scraplift because I loved the way Cathy's looked.  
I had been wanting to put down my feelings about being involved during Claire's pregnancy and this layout gave me the chance to do just that. In all honesty, I think this is probably the most journalling I've put on any of my scrapbook layouts! I have so many more photos I want to scrap so I can see hybrid layouts could well be the way for me to go as they make things so much quicker.
These photos were taken last night after Craig got home from work. As I was going up stairs Alice kept smiling at me, so I got my camera for a couple of photos.
 This one was taken when she spotted her Mummy coming down the stairs :)
 Group photo - you can tell Craig loves it when I get my camera out ;o)
When Alice was first put in this bouncy chair she looked so little - not so much these days!
Her fingers tend to be in her mouth all the time at the moment and we think we can feel a little tooth cutting it's way through the top gum.
Who could resist this cute little face? :o)


  1. A gorgeous LO ~ very good of CZ to offer up the template. I'm thinking about how I can use it myself. Lovely to see your journaling ~ Alice will never be in any doubt about how much she is loved. x

  2. What a lovely layout,Rhona....and the journaling is wonderful...what a beautiful piece of writing for Alice to read when she's older.
    My grand daughter is in Tenerife at the moment....hopefully enjoying her first holiday....though DS was the one who was like a little kid about going away!!

  3. This is a fantastic layout Rhona! I love the journaling, Claire is a very lucky lady to have such wonderful support from you :-)

  4. I was straight onto the download link for that template, too - I haven't used it yet though! Your version is gorgeous, the journaling is so heartfelt and special xx

  5. Another set of fabulous photos, and a great layout. I'm WAY behind in reading blogs, so missed the free template. I'm off to see if it's still there.
