Baby layout!

Hi Crafty friends!  Brenda here from Friends Craftin With Friends, the design team was asked to make a project using at least one button for Sweet Sassy Diva.  I wanted to do a layout of our newest grand daughter that was born on her Papaw's birthday.  So I started off with a crude, and I mean crude sketch. Yeah, I'm no artist! lol But it was something to give me a starting point.
Then I decided to make it a double page layout and I got the idea to punch my paper using a Martha Steward around the page punch. I also used the ticket punch from SU.
So I printed my paper that I wanted to punch and started punching.  But......
....the punching didn't work out so well for me. lol  I didn't want to waste the paper that I had already printed so I trimmed off the botched punching making my paper size 10 1/4 by 10 1/4.  Punched again and only had one little boo boo this time.  I can live with that, I can always hide it with an embellishment.
So with a smaller punched paper I had to add another paper cut down to 11 x 11 inch and I printed that a solid color of green.  Layered it with my base and my top layer.  Ok that is working alright-not what I had in mind but it is working.  Next I printed and cut the images that I wanted to use from my Imagine using Nursery Tails. I also printed my pics I wanted to use too.  I played around with my images and buttons for a while.
I finally had to go with just two pics and I also didn't use all my embellishments.  Here is how the finished layout turned out. I didn't fill out all the info on our grand daughter since it was on the internet. Over all I am pretty pleased with it after all the problems I had getting going.  It isn't how I envisioned it with the sketch, but I made the most out of my mistakes and I am ok with it now.  Always try to take your mistakes and turn them into something you can use.  It is always worth a try!!
