LOAD213 - Day 6 Do It Now!

What page have you been putting off? Your wedding? Your child's 1st birthday? Your own birthday - maybe a big one like your 30th or 40th?
That was the prompt that Lain gave me for today's LOAD213 page.

At first I wasn't sure that I had been putting off any pages. I've been pretty good at scrapping current photos lately as well as digging into that pile of "memories to be scrapped". But ... there's always a 'but' isn't there? ... I have yet to start Christine's baby album so that's where this prompt led me.

And I came up with this.


My sister-in-law Christine threw me a surprise baby shower. What do you get a 3rd time Mom who knows she's expecting her 3rd girl and therefore already has everything? Frozen meals!! I'm telling you, this was THE BEST gift anyone could have given me!!

I have used these papers in Marley and Paige's baby albums so am keeping consistent and using them on Christine's album too. Here are some detail shots.


Found some old Dear Lizzy chipboard stickers in my stash that were perfect for this soft colour palette.

Like the colour of an embellishment but the wording is wrong? No sweat! Just change it!!

Added this one to show you how some of the elements have been attached with pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by. If you're participating in LOAD213 then I'll see you on the message boards!
