The bigger 2 were feeling neglected

....because most of my layouts lately have been about the baby. So I did this layout for them of all of my favorite shots from the past year or so of just the two of them! I decided to follow Mission to Create #23 because I thought the photo strip would work well for incorporating several smaller pictures. In the end I think I was able to tackle every challenge.

#1 Use photobooth style photos - These weren't from a photobooth, but the photo strip style none-the-less. Hope it counts :)

#2 Use brads - in the center of the flower on the bottom of the layout is a fancy shmancy butterfly brad embellie.

#3 Use 6 pieces of 1x1 or less patterned paper - the pink polka dotted paper is trimmed into six tiny pieces before being used in a strip formation.

#4 Stitch a border - there is a faux stitched border around the outside of the layout.

#5 Use this photo below as inspiration -
......and voila.....
As an added bit of awesome, the challenge over at Practical Scrappers this week was stitching too! YAY!!! Two-fer :) Click to check out that challenge .... there's still time to join in :)
