I have taken on a pretty large project over these last two months! And I am here now to say that it's done! Whoo hooo!!! Do the happy dance!!!!!!! It was a pretty daunting task, I do have to say! I was asked to create a scrapbook for a baby nursery that is a farm theme! And it should have gotten to the baby BEFORE the baby was born. But, since life has a way of interrupting even the best of intentions, well.....it's a bit late! But, still within the month he was born, so not TOO bad. But still. Not quite good enough.
Anyway, it's done! And I am VERY proud of the way it turned out! I just hope the mother who will be filling it up w/ baby pictures will love it as much as I do! I mailed it off today, and I wanted to keep it for myself!
The project, when looking at the whole picture, should have been easy. Create a scrapbook, farm themed, for a baby. There aren't any pictures, because the darling baby wasn't born yet. And leave pockets throughout for advice cards to slide in. Ok, easy peasy, right?! Well, when you're Erin Smetak, that's not the case! I don't do easy. And I don't do fast. And I don't do sloppy or simple. I take time to research the project, I pay attention to detail, I'm all about color combos, and I like to work outside the box.
That being said, I had an absolute BLAST working on this book! I drew quite a few things free hand, and was pleased as punch w/ the results! I used my Cricut A LOT! And lots of paper! Lots and lots and lots of paper!
Ok, let's get on w/ the show! Just a warning: This is a LOOOONNNGGGG post!
Thanks for traveling through this farm w/ me!
It has been a joy to work on this book!
