Another little milestone and a layout

This morning, as Claire was going to have breakfast, we decided to try sitting Alice in her highchair and see how she got on.
 I think she liked being higher up and more on a level with the rest of us. She also got to try a little bit of Farley's rusk but,again, we weren't sure if she'd manage it. We were ready to fish it out her mouth if she started choking but when she bit a piece off she seemed to manage because it melts fairly quickly in her mouth. Before long she'll be sitting there with finger foods while we have our meals!
I was watching Hugh with Alice this morning and it made me remember him at 8 when Emily was a baby. He's always been so good with little ones and he loves playing with Alice so I decided that would be my next layout.
I made up my template so that I could get the journalling in the right place and then printed out the journalling onto my background before sticking on the photos and patterned paper. I used a corner rounder on the paper to finish it off and I like the way it turned out. Now I have another template for future use too.  


  1. Such an important milestone :) (and doesn't she look all grownup and important sitting there by herself!)

  2. Aww...yay for Alice and her most recent milestone!

    And SUPER cute layout - I love how you used the corner rounder!

  3. Such a simple, but effective layout, rounding off those corners makes all the difference. Lovely photos too!

  4. Lovely, lovely layout - and wow, another big milestone, isn't the time going fast?!

  5. Alice looks so big in that high chair! She's growing up so fast. It will be fun to be able to have her join you at the table for meals though, won't it? Can't wait to see more pictures of her in her high chair as she begins eating "real food" and making proper messes. ♥

  6. It's amazing how quickly Alice Rose is changing! Your layout is wonderful; I love the design.
