JAI Scrapbook Challenge #1

My First Birthday
Scrapbook Layout Challenge JAI #1

Well, well, well it has been along time coming. I have had a break over the Festive Season and I seemed to have lost my inspiration for a while there, so I decided to give myself a kickstart back into creating some thing to share with everyone that I decided to visit my favorite Challenge site over at Just Add Ink and surprise they are now doing Scrapbook Layouts and for their very first one we have to make a layout any sort of layout as long as it had FIRST on it. So off to my pile of photos that are in need of layouts to choose a photo for the Challenge. I managed to find a very old one considering my son is now 8 years old of his very first birthday wish.

Here is my layout
My Layout Recipe

Pacific Point 12" x 12"
Real Red cardstock
