He's finally here!

Caden Scott arrived on Dec 9th, 2008 at 11:11 A.M. He was 8 lbs 12 oz. and was 20 inches long. His older brother and sisters can't get enough of being around him. Each little feature is a source of wonder (and questions). "He's so soft" and "He's got little arms. I got BIG arms" and "He's sleepy. He's yawning" are heard over and over again. (Along with "Be easy" and "Not so rough." LOL!) His birth was quite easy, lasting only 7 hours from beginning of labor to delivery. Here's a layout I made of Caden and his siblings at their first meeting. This Is Love!

I used a freebie kit from Angelwithin Designs (Fiona Storey) at ScrapbookMax for the ribbon, lace, bow, buttons and tie, and journal tag (also used tag for frame around pics). Used Lashana Maya kit by Deanne Gow Smith at Scrapbook Max for the background paper (recolored) and the Our Baby and stitches over lace. Used Moonlight Pearl by Deanne Gow Smith for the larger frame with pearls (recolored). Wordart by KimB's Designs This Is Love kit. Thanks, ladies, for letting me use your kits to share our joy with the world!

Remember, the Holly Jolly Blog Train pulls out on Dec 15th! Be sure to come back to get Christmas freebies from over 70 designers (me included)!

Hi Melanie,

Thanks for stopping by, and your kind words. Crops cracks me up, and gives so much (even to her evil sisters LOL). It just seemed right to send a gift her way.

Speaking of gifts, CONGRATULATIONS on your beautiful grandson. He is beautiful, and the layout is something that will be cherished forever.

Have a good evening!
