I did this page in the 12x12 format size. The background is a sheet of 12x12 scrapbooking paper in pale pink with 'baby girl' wording all over it in white. I then trimmed down a solid piece of pale pink cardstock to measure 8" square and attached it to the printed background with tiny white eyelets in each of the corners. I had one 4x6 photo that I wanted to use of Little G getting her first bath and framed it with a pretty floral printed sticker frame. I placed it onto the layout as shown in the photo above.
I had a slew of baby girl 3-d embellishments left-over from other projects and decided to use up a lot of those on this layout. The title of the layout is "Baby's 1st Bath" so I used chipboard embellishments to spell it out as shown in my photo above. I had a vellum quote that said "Rub a dub" and I framed that out with pale pink and medium pink cardstock. I then placed that at the bottom of the layout.
The rest of my 3-d embellishments on this layout include a glittered butterfly, a 2" by 2" piece of self-stick medium pink plastic mesh (under the bottom left corner of the photo), a round cardstock sticker that says Baby's First Bath with a sticker of a yellow rubber duckie), the word BABY cardstock sticker is under the photo and finally, I used 3 tiny pink satin ribbon bows on the layout. You can see the placement of all of these embellishments in the photo.
I decided to do all my journaling on the backside of the page (yes, you can journal on the back of your pages) because I really had a lot to say about the day I helped my daughter give little G her very first bath. Sigh...they grow up way too quickly!
