First Haircut and First Double Pager

I have been saving some of the last papers from the Field Guide kit to create my first double page layout. I saved some Basic Grey paper for the background and hoped that I would come across something worthy of two pages.

As part of the Cover to Cover class Shimelle Laine offers, I made a short list of layouts that I felt were missing from this year's album. One of the important events was Scarlett getting her first haircut. She was just a month shy of turning two when she had her first haircut and I was definitely more nervous about it than she was!

I spent a lot of time positioning the green strip of paper just so on the second page so everything lined up only to completely cover it with photos and other paper!

All the papers are from the SC kit. The embellishments on this page include a Sasha Farina flair, Amy Tangerine sticker and a MME border sticker. The Thickers are an SC exclusive from the So Cal kit.

 The same lines are represented on this second page. The right hand photo was taken on the runway they have in the salon for the children to show off their new looks. 

I am glad I had a go at a double pager and especially glad that I have recorded this event in my album as well as in Project Life. I think I may challenge myself again to this format if I have an event with more than a couple of photos. It has also officially meant the end of the Field Guide kit! I am so excited to get stuck into So Cal for the rest of the week.

Right, the kitchen calls. I have a pile of veges that need turning into ratatouille and sadly they won't chop themselves up! Enjoy your Wednesday!


  1. Yay for double pages!
    I have some haircut photos I never scrapped of Sofia. She had her first haircut at age 5!
    She loves her long hair. Anyway, cute spread!

  2. That is such a pretty double pager. I really can't make them! You did brilliantly
