Baby Boy Lucas Album

Wow it has been a couple of weeks since I've posted.  Crazy how summer gets so busy.  We enjoyed a family reunion last weekend with my husband's family, and had some visitors here from Holland.  It was really a nice time, even if we had some rain.

My nephew and his wife welcomed a baby boy, Lucas, a little brother for Jack.  So, as always, I did their baby album to welcome Lucas.  They live in Nova Scotia and will be visiting next month.  My sister (gramma to the baby) is most anxious to see them. 

I love using bright primary colours for boy's albums.  I pulled out my stash and used some retired items including Fanfare paper package, Rough & Tumble stickease, white ribbon, and colour ready alphabets.  I also mixed in some new items including Pacifica embellishments, star dimensional elements, and white buttons from the basic button assortment.

This is the first and last page in the album.  I used the same Stitch Alphabet to make Lucas' name title.  Dimensional Stars coloured with my Copics and fun Fanfare embellishments.  
I went crazy with buttons and brads on this layout and added some Pacifica embellishments and ribbon.  The title is from the Colour ready alphabet, not coloured.  The title Family above is also colour ready alphabet coloured with my Copic markers.
Jack is going to be a fabulous big brother so I wanted him and Lucas to have their own page.  I edge distressed the photo mats with Sky ink.     
I used some Rough & Tumble stickease from my retired stash which like all Close to My Heart paper/embellishments, I was able to colour co-ordinate with another paper package - same Cranberry, Sunny Yellow.

What are little boys made of - why snaps & snails & puppy dogs tails.  Fun page using star dimensional elements coloured with copics and stamped with pacifica ink.  I cut additional stars from the patterned paper and foam taped them for added dimension. 
.Sweet Dreams - for all little babies.  I used some more stickease to add cars, and planes and a little tag for mommy to journal on.  Some ribbon and pacifica buttons to finish it up.

I hope you like Lucas' album and I can't wait to meet my newest great nephew. 

Happy creating and here's to your paper traditions.
