This first layout is the first one where I have used doodling. I have never really been inspired to try it until now, but it really seemed to lend itself to this layout. The background paper is a very dark blue mulberry paper (although in this photo it looks black) and hence the use of the blue mats on the photo. I wanted to lighten the actual picture slightly so used the dark yellow mat to match the sheets and to brighten the page a bit. The journalling reads 'Alex sleeping sweetly in his Moses basket, 6 days old'.
The second layout is of the first time Alex met Tim's parents and I was inspired by the MakingMemories Kids collection for my choice of colours, using 4 of the 6 co-ordinating paper designs. The journalling reads 'Alex met Granny and Grandpa Pete for the first time when he was 2 weeks old. He spent much of the time staring at and being cuddled by them.'. Comments welcome.
