This past weekend we attended a baby shower "Russian style" - which is celebrated after baby is born. I just wanted to share a few pictures from the party, like these gorgeous cupcakes...
... or this delicious cake...
... or this cutest cake made by a very talented friend of ours:
... I wish I could go fill my plate there again... everything was so yummy!
And here is the reason of the party - sweet little baby boy!
... and here he is with his happy Mommy:
We had a great time! But it was kinda hard to keep an eye on the little one, because every couple of minutes he was stolen by somebody else...
And now I have another page to share for today. I realized it's in blue colors too. Lately I've been drawn to this color a lot. Is there a reason? I remember making pink after pink page last year, but out of 12 layouts I made this year - 9 of them have blue as a dominant color. Here is a "Together" page:
This page looked a little heavy on pictures until I added the title right in the middle of picture collage. I think it helped to soften the page a little.
Working with older photos is not always the easiest part. Colors in pictures are not as bright and picking papers for them was a little challenge for me. I decided to go with dreamy, dusty blue colors, since it was a while back. I used mostly papers from "Lost&Found" collection and added a piece from the "Fine&Dandy" paper pad.
These are both 6x6 paper pads. I have placed my scissors beside them for the picture to underline the scale. I really enjoyed working with 6x6 paper pads last week. This page (except the blue background paper, was made with those small 6x6 papers.
My last winter layout was completely made out of 6x6 paper pads, except one brown strip across the middle. Actually using exactly the same two paper pads.
So, 6x6 paper pads are not just for card making or adding small pieces of paper. You can make entire large 12x12 layouts using just these small paper collections.
Thank you for visiting and I'll see you soon again!
