the highly anticipated arrival of Andy

My new nephew, Andy has arrived! He is cute, and seems tiny. He is also one of the most serious babies I've ever met. He is quite wonderful and already a much-loved addition to the family.

I couldn't wait to start scrapping this cute little guy, so made a layout with the photo my sister sent out in the birth announcements. His room and the baby shower for my sister are both air plane themed so I tried to incorporate a bit of that theme into the page. The little flag banners and the tiny paper air plane were all left overs from the cupcake toppers I made for the shower.

Here is the whole page. I stood it up on a fluted metal basket to photograph it, and you can see the edge looking wonky at the bottom of the photo.

I covered a chipboard airplane with patterned paper and floated a tag with the title, as if the plane were pulling the announcement.

I love saving scraps from other layouts -- especially the leftovers after I have handcut out a detail for another page -- to use again.

Here are the cupcake topper pieces (flag banners and paper air plane) that I made for the baby shower. I made so many of these, I was happy to have a few left over to use on a page!
