Sweet Home Workshop: Will's Baptism (Layout #51)

If you're a big Close To My Heart fan like I am then you have probably already seen a version of this layout somewhere. (I hope you like mine because I sure do have a sweet subject!) This layout is featured in the Sweet Home Workshop on the Go, and I had a great group of ladies make this layout (plus another to be featured later) and six cards with me on Saturday.

Read on if you'd like to see my close ups and the details.

I used a flip-flap to hold the little booklet I got as Will's Godmother. I wanted to be able to take it out to read the inside and back because it has prayers to say for him for his birthday and other special events in his life. I love that the important dates are already recorded there. Also, after cutting a square to fit, I wrote my journaling and then went back and stamped on the square.

Isn't he precious? If he doesn't look like his Uncle Brian here, I don't know who he resembles!

We all gathered at his house for a wonderful luncheon, so here is the family. On my journaling block behind my immediate family's photo, I wrote out who all the people in the main photo are. Even though we all know who they are, I felt it was important to record these details for future generations who may not know everyone in the photo by sight. Do you think about these things when you create scrapbook pages?

Finally, here's a close up of the cool new Top Coats 4"x6" transparency overlays. I didn't know when I first got them that they have a clear film on top that needs to be removed. I couldn't tell it was even there until I took it off. (Just rub one of the corners to get it to start peeling off.) I attached mine with flower brads from the White Daisy Mini Medley Accents that came with the workshop kit.


  1. Such a cute little fella, if I do say so myself!!!

  2. What a good lookin' bunch of folks! This was a great l/o to make...and it looks sooo much better with all your photos and journaling completed. Like that overlay. Now when will I get mine finished?...

  3. The layout is great - the subject matter, of course, is just TOPS! And it looks great all done. I need to get busy and get some photos on mine. Maybe I'll take Thanksgiving photos to put on it! Hugs...

  4. A LO and 6 cards!!! wow you have a great workshop.
    Gorgeous LO Hayley...and thanks for explaining the Top Coats for me..they look great.
