Now that I've shared a ton of cards I have three layouts that I created (to pick just one but hey I got more pages for my book done so I'll take it!) My final submission was layout 1.
layout 1 - cow licked
The title alone cracks me up. I used the barnyard collection from Doodlebug and when I got this line I was like wow what am I gonna do with this but these two layouts came out great - I love them so I'm excited to share them. We went to our local farm - South mountain creamery in Frederick, MD. They open their farm to the public I think twice a year and in April we went to go see the baby cows because my 2 1/2 year old son loves cows. He wants to be one for Halloween - those pictures are going to awesome if I can stop laughing.
After getting to feed the baby cows, laughing at the baby pigs and asking if he could have a bunny we went to see the chicks. As he was looking into the incubator a chick popped out of his shell. Holden thought that was just the coolest thing.
I wanted to have another layout that was not barnyard so I tossed this one together at the last minute. I used the surprise party birthday celebration line for the boys. There is a pink one for the girls that is just as awesome but since Zoe isn't even 1 I haven't pulled it out to play with yet. (to get the balloon strings I drew them in as dashes but ribbon would be cool too)
