Scrapbook for Yates...Part 2

Good Tuesday morning to you!
I hope your week got off to a good start yesterday.
I spent yesterday morning cleaning my house (not my favorite thing, but it was way overdue).
Yesterday afternoon was spent working in my badly neglected yard (we're talking dead plants that had to be yanked up). I'm already sooo sore...gonna be taking lots of Motrin over the next few days, I'm sure!

Anyway, the good news is that after all that hard work, today is going to be dedicated to playing in my
Craft Corner!
Yippee!  I can play all morning (guilt free) because I worked so hard yesterday.  (Ok, you and I both know that I would have played with my paper and scissors today anyway even if I hadn't worked my tail off yesterday, but that's totally beside the point....so just don't go there!)

So...I thought I would start this morning off with a few more pages from Yates' scrapbook...

Sorry about the lack of quality pictures...it was an overcast day when I took these and I didn't realize how bad they were...ugh..hate when that happens! The paper is actually a very pretty, almost lime green with yellow dots and the trim is all a dark, chocolate brown. 
Anyway, this double page layout will hold four 4X6 photos of sweet baby Yates.

I used a gel pen to make stitching lines around the photo mats.
For the corners, I cut triangles and used a Martha Stewart punch along the side, brads finish off the look.
The journal pocket is embossed with Cuttlebug's "Animal Prints" and the sentiment is from
"Create A Critter" cut at 1 1/2 inches.

The cute little giraffe is also from "Create A Critter" cut at 5 inches.  I cut him out twice and pop-dotted him together for some dimension.

Close up of Giraffe!

Ok, sorry again about the poor pictures!  Hopefully my next photos will turn out better!
I'm heading upstairs to get started on a new project.  I'll have pictures for you soon...ok...I said I would try to do better with the pictures.....

In the meantime, have a good day and remember....

It's Hip to be Square

Until next time (still can't get that song outta my head),
