Emily used to scrapbook with us but has been too busy working for the past few years to join us. Now that she's on maternity leave she has decided to start scrapbooking again so she and Olive joined us for a productive fun day.
Of course a nice part of the day was spent holding our little star.

|Layout #1. I have trouble photographing the layouts so they are perfectly square.|
They're done on 12 x 12 inch cardstock.
|She's wearing her Olive You onesie.|
Emily wanted to do a layout of Olive's hands and feet. Olive didn't want her to! Olive won.
|Getting the ink washed off her hand|
We got busy when Olive went down for her nap and each of us produced a good number of layouts. The ones shown here are mine because I forgot to take pictures of Mickey's and Emily's.
|I love the way she's looking at Lloyd in the first photo...so bright eyed and interested.|
|Of course the layouts look better in real life. The color is a bit faded out here.|
|The background of this layout is actual burlap fused onto cardstock. It|
makes a wonderful texture to bring out the texture of the woven basket the
baby is sleeping in.
|At her first portrait setting at three weeks, given as a gift to Emily and Allan, the photographer|
captured the smallness and sweetness of Olives hands and feet. No, those
aren't her actual footprints on the paper.
